Rosh Chodesh, After Sivan, Tammuz

Yesterday a group of us prayed at Tel Shiloh. It was Rosh Chodesh Sivan, less than a week before the Shavuot Holiday.


As you can see from the pictures, the summer dryness is manifesting itself in Shiloh. Thank G-d, I get to the Tel at least once a month, and each time I find great beauty. It's also never the same, sort of like children. Each one is unique and beloved.
Yes, children and Shiloh are connected, because it was at Shiloh where Chana prayed to G-d for a child. She didn't demand one for her own personal maternal yearnings. She asked for a child who would be the leader of the Jewish People, to bring it to the next stage from confusion to a Kingdom.
And the king, David, who really made us a great powerful nation, who defeated our enemies was descended from Ruth who is honored on Shavuot.
Shmuel Hanavi, Samuel The Prophet's mother Chana and King David's great-grandmother, Ruth were both very special women. Jewish Laws of Prayer are derived from Chana, and Jewish Laws of Conversion are from Ruth.
Next month, Rosh Chodesh Tammuz, we will meet at Tel Shiloh for Women's Prayer on Monday June 22, 9:30 am. Please save the date.
The Tel Shiloh is open to visitors daily. For more information email telshilo@gmail.com

Even with the dryness, it's still beautiful.

I like the connection with Chana and Ruth.

Leora, thanks
I find it beautiful every season, even the driest. On your next trip to Israel, I hope you'll visit.

The Moshiach ben David line and all connections to true leadership is full of strong confident, determined women.
