Hiking Through Emek Shiloh Valley עמק שילה

Last Friday at high noon, a multigenerational group from גוש שילה Gush Shiloh Bloc took off together under the guidance of Land of Israel, Eretz Yisrael guide extraordinaire Zeev Ehrlich



A treasure trove of little-known history and Biblical geography, Ehrlich told us about the unusual nature of the massive Shiloh Valley and its place in Jewish History.




Apparently today's growth of Jewish communities around Emek Shiloh Valley עמק שילה isn't new. Over the millenia, even a few hundred years ago, there were also Jewish towns surrounding the valley and  taking advantage of the fertile land for agriculture.


Zeev Ehrlich
The tour was sponsored by the עמק שילה- ועד מקומי Emek Shiloh-Vaad Mikomi, vote עמ list for the Local Council. In recent years the גוש שילה Gush Shiloh Bloc has grown enormously in every way. It's situated between just west of Highway 60 and goes all the way eastwards to the Alon Road. There's potential for much more growth, since most of the Land is government owned. That's why the new community of Amichai, designated especially for the former Amona families/residents, is located here. 

I'm supporting this list, because I feel that it has the most vision for growth and unity. In order to maximize our potential the numerous existing communities must give up some independence and work together. This is a process that has played out all over Israel. Many of today's major and successful cities also began as small independent communities. No doubt that the גוש שילה Gush Shiloh Bloc will remain a combination of rural and suburban, but too much money and manpower are now being wasted.

The Biblical stories centered in גוש שילה Gush Shiloh Bloc are well-known, and it was very exciting to learn of Jewish life here during other times, even long after the Destruction of the Second Holy Temple. As you can see from the pictures, there's plenty of empty Land for Jewish Life here in גוש שילה Gush Shiloh Bloc.

So good to see the ancient history of The Jewish people being taught to offset the lies from the media and nations who want to erase the truth from the record.

Keep up this GREAT work for eternal Erez Yisrael !!!

Thanks
Jewish History here is very rich. It's Tel Aviv that has no history.

How very fortunate are those who are privileged
to live in the world's only Holy Land -- Israel.

I said this before, and I say it again:

Batya Medad should gather all her pictures together,
and make them into a book and/or web site:

==================================
Harvard Law Professor Alan M. Dershowitz said:

“Too few of Israel’s critics seem to understand
the Jewish determination to avoid another Holocaust,
this one in Israel.

Too few understand why Israel cannot and should not
trust its survival to nations that stood idly by
while millions of innocent Jews were destroyed.

Too many nations seem willing to have Israel
take risks for an uncertain regional peace
that they themselves are unwilling to take
for a more important world peace.”

==================================
Harvard Law Professor Alan M. Dershowitz said:

“…if Israel’s military power were ever to be
diminished to the point that the combined armies
of the Arab world could defeat it, I believe
there would be another Holocaust.

No Arab dictator who could defeat Israel
and forebore from doing so would survive
the continuing frenzy for jihad
[Islamic holy war against non-Muslims].

And an Arab military victory over Israel –
unlike the Israeli victories over the Arabs –
would not result in a mere occupation
or even detention of Israeli Jews.

It would result in a mass slaughter, designed
to rid Arab holy land of Jewish intruders.

Most Jews know this, though they rarely speak of it openly.

But then again, most Jews did not speak
openly about the Holocaust before it
happened, while it was happening,
or for several years after it was over.”
