Tel Shiloh, On Top of Ancient Reservoir

Here are three very short videos with explanations, mostly in Hebrew, by Miryam Blum, of Eli, about Ancient, Biblical Shiloh. 

Ancient Shiloh was a place of pilgrimage.  The Mishkan Tabernacle, House of Jewish Prayer stood here in Shiloh for 369 years.  Shiloh had few "permanent residents," besides the priests and Tabernacle staff, but they were always prepared for visitors, especially for the Jewish Holidays.  There was a need for water for all the visitors. In short, it has been discovered that there are many underground places at the Tel Shiloh that had held water.  You can also see it in the stones uncovered.

This was filmed during our monthly Women's Rosh Chodesh Prayers at Tel Shiloh.  Next Rosh Chodesh, during Chanuka, will be Rosh Chodesh Tevet, 5772, December 27, 2011.
