Local Bar Mitzvah

A local family celebrated their son's Bar Mitzvah here in Shiloh last night and this morning. There's really no need to travel when we live in such a beautiful, spiritual and historic place.

Think about it. No doubt that Shmuel HaNavi, Samuel the Prophet must have had his Bar Mitzvah here, too. His family and friends may have eaten the seudat mitzvah, the special "command meal" in the very same spot, not far from the Mishkan, the Holy Tabernacle.

Here in modern Shiloh, we have a synagogue modeled, designed according to the Biblical description of the Mishkan.

We Jews are here, because this is our Land, based on our long and well-documented history.
