# [[Tachanun]] is omitted on Tu BeAv.<ref>Orchot Chaim 7, Derech HaChaim 38:10, Kesher Gudal 19:17, Yalkut Yosef (Kitzur Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim 131:36, 459:26)</ref> and Mincha the day before.<ref>Mishna Berurah 131:30</ref># Some Ashkenazim omit "Lamenatzeach" on Tu Be'Av, while others do not.<ref>Elyah Rabbah 131:14 says one should recite it. Chayei Adam (1:32:34) quotes both views.</ref>
# Beit Din cannot initiate a series of fasts on Tu BeAv, but if they began already, one would have to fast on Tu BeAv according to the letter of the law. Nowadays, this does not apply. If they instituted that one should abstain from meat at a certain interval and didn't realize it would coincide with Tu BeAv, one may eat meat if he has a seudat mitzvah on that day. An individual, however, who takes this upon himself, may not eat meat even on a seudat mitzvah.<ref>Chayei Adam 2-3:132:2. See Elyah Rabbah 580:9</ref># One who gets married on Tu BeAv may not fast.<ref>Magen Avraham 573 introduction, Chochmat Adam 129:2, Derech HaChaim 223:2, Yechaveh Da'at 1:81 and 4:61, Yalkut Yosef (Kitzur Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim 455:18; Sova Semachot I, Chuppah veKiddushin 3:7)</ref># Some begin a series of forty days of fasting after Tu BeAv, corresponding to the forty days Moshe Rabbenu was on Har Sinai. Although those forty days begin with Rosh [[Chodesh Elul]], the series is begun earlier due to the days one may not fast, such as [[Shabbat]] and [[Rosh Chodesh]]. If one wants to space out the fasts even more, he must begin from after [[Tisha Be'Av]].<ref>Elya Zuta 581:9, Yosef Ometz (Yospa) Siman 496, Mishna Berurah 568:34</ref>
==Torah Learning==
# As the nights begin to elongate, one should increase his daily [[Learning Torah|Torah learning]].<ref>Ta'anit 31a, Bava Batra 121b, Shulchan Aruch (Yoreh Deah 246:23), Moreh BaEtzbah 8:242, Yalkut Yosef (Kitzur Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim 459:26, Yoreh De'ah 245:30). See Yosef Ometz (Yospe) Siman 495 who reconciles this with the general imperative to get a sufficient amount of sleep regularly.</ref>
# Just as Moshe Rabbenu instituted that one should study the laws of each holiday prior to the holiday, some say one should study the laws of Shemitah from at least Tu BeAv before a Shemita year.<ref>Ma'amar Mordechai (Eliyahu, Sheviit 1:1)</ref>
# One who lives in an apartment building and cannot prevent work from being done on the apartments gardens during Shemita should tell the board that he wants his fees to go towards non-gardening expenses. Some say he should declare the garden Hefker in front of three people, and it is advisable to do so before Tu BeAv.<Ref>Ma'amar Mordechai (Eliyahu, Sheviit 9:22)</ref>
#One may recite Tzidduk haDin for a great Talmid Chacham on Tu BeAv.<ref>Mishna Berurah 420:4</ref>
