Tel Shiloh, Digging Up the Past

There is a lot going on at Tel Shiloh aka Shiloh HaKeduma, Ancient Shiloh.  Archaeologists are revealing more and more of the Biblical site where the Mishkan, Holy Tabernacle rested for 369 years, the place of pilgrimage, prayers to G-d for the Jewish People before we had kings.


The modern community Village of Shiloh adjoins the ancient one, and even those of us, like me, who live far from the Tel can walk it very easily.  It's just over a mile, barely two kilometers, from my house.  Chazal, our sages say that G-d's shechina, presence still remains in such a holy place.  People come from all over the world to pray there.  I've been organizing women's Rosh Chodesh Prayers for a number of years already.  Next month is Av when mourning the destruction of the Holy Temple intensifies.

Did Shiloh's Rav Bin Nun succeed in preventing another inflitration and chilul Hashem?
