Tel Shiloh, Rosh Chodesh Cheshvan, October, 2010
Tel Shiloh should be considered the holiest site in the Jewish World for women who make a point of public prayer. It was in Shiloh, at the site of today's archaeological tel, where Chana prayed for a son who would serve and lead the Jewish People. It was at that time, when she prayed, that the High Priest Eli HaKohen mistakenly chastised her for inappropriate behavior. He manner of prayer was not only the correct one, but today it is the basis for the halachot, Jewish Laws on how to pray.
I organize Women's Prayer on Rosh Chodesh (the first of the Jewish Month) at Tel Shiloh. If you're interested in joining us, please contact me or keep checking this blog for announcements.
