Succot Plans! SHILOH!

This Succot there will be activities at Shiloh HaKeduma, Ancient Shiloh, at Tel Shiloh.

For those who can't read Hebrew and can't find the relevant numbers, a trick I'd teach my remedial students when confronted with a difficult unseen, aka reading comprehension article, Tues-Thurs Oct. 2-4, 9am-5pm. 

Instead of panicking when seeing all sorts of foreign shapes and incomprehensible gibberish, one should look for internationally used symbols like numbers.  Here in this attractive poster, you can see 2-4-10, which means the 2nd to the 4th of the tenth month which is October.  And the time is from 9-17, meaning 9am until 5pm.  There's also a phone number, 02-9944019, and an internet site, www.telshilo.org.il And hints about the activities can be seen in the numerous pictures illustrating it.  There's also one of those funny little squiggles that can be "read" by smart phones, if I'm not mistaken.

No doubt there will be guided tours, street theater and workshops.  There's a coffee shop kiosk that sells souvenirs and artwork by local artisans.

Our holiday events have been very successful which is why it's being produced again this year.  Shiloh is only about a half an hour from the Yarkon Junction, near Petach Tikvah and a half hour from Jerusalem.  If I get more information I'll let you know.
