Some of the women were regulars, but as usual there were also new ones. This time, some of the women felt the need to wander, looking for a spot where they felt more of a personal connection to G-d and Jewish History.
As they went wandering where thousands of years ago, Elkana, Chana, Eli and Samuel once walked and prayed, I called out:
"Look at beneath you. Can't you picture Eli sitting there, awaiting news of the Holy Ark and the battle?"
Today, hundreds of Jewish families of all ages and backgrounds live in Shiloh. My friends and I go to the Tel to pray every month on Rosh Chodesh, the first day of the Jewish Month. If you want more information, please write to me at shilohmuse at yahoo dot com. Visitors, tourists and pilgrims are welcome to the Tel, and there is a coffee, snack and souvenir shop there, too.
