Chodesh Sivan Tov, Close to The End of The Omer

We are now in the Jewish Month of Sivan. Iyyar is behind us, and the Holiday of Shavuot is in just a couple of days. We are also in the seventh week of the 49 days in Sefirat Ha'Omer, the counting of the Omer which leads us from Passover to Shavuot, escaping slavery to Pharaoh in Egypt to the receiving of the Torah (Ten Commandments) from G-d.

As is my custom, I prayed at the site of our Biblical Tabernacle, here in Shiloh on Rosh Chodesh.

My friends and I connected with our Biblical ancestors in the very same spot where they came to pray. 

I find myself more focused on G-d when at this holy spot than any place else.

Even though we're all so busy it was a great pleasure to be able to sit quietly and pray there.

Refuah shleimah, a complete and speedy recovery for all in need.

The next Jewish Month is Tammuz.

This is to invite women to join us in Rosh Chodesh Prayers at Shiloh Hakeduma, Tel Shiloh.
