I've taken it on, as a pledge of sorts, to try to bring Shiloh back to the forefront of Jewish Prayer. Why Jewish Prayer? It's simple. Shiloh played a very important role in Jewish national and religious history as told in the Bible. It was Shiloh which was the capital city of the Jewish Nation and the location of the Holy Tabernacle for 369 years, from Joshua until Samuel. For almost four centuries Jews came from all over to pray. Among them was Hannah, the barren wife of Elkanah. She prayed to G-d for a son who would lead the Jewish People. Her prayer was granted by G-d, and Samuel was her son.
Hannah's Prayer is considered so important to the Jewish Religion that the Laws of Prayer are formulated according to that narrative in the Bible. 1Samuel Chapter 1
I've established the custom to pray at Tel Shiloh with other women every Rosh Chodesh, the first of the Jewish Month.
Next month's prayers:
