Shiloh is definitely on the map as a place of great historic and religious significance. Of course, this doesn't surprise us. That's why we make every effort to pray together on the first day of the Jewish Month, davka here in Shiloh. There are two reasons for this. One is that Rosh Chodesh is considered a "women's holiday," and the other is that Shiloh is the location where the Biblical Chana successfully prayed for a child.
Archeologists have been attracted to Shiloh for centuries, and they have consistently confirmed the basic Biblical narrative about Shiloh and even more. Unlike what was once believed, there was an active Jewish community in Shiloh long after the destruction of the Mishkan, Tabernacle.
In four weeks, it will the the first day of the Month of Av, and we'll be back in Shiloh praying together. Here are the details:

Please mark it in your calendar/diary/event planner so you can join us, Gd willing. If you have more questions about it, please contact me email@example.com with "Rosh Chodesh" as subject. Our women's dovening isn't a version of male synagogue prayers. We sing Hallel out loud and then doven Musaf individually.
