Chodesh Ellul Tov, 5779, September 1, 2019

Rosh Chodesh Ellul, 5779, and the opening of the Israeli school year will both be September 1, 2019. I guess that means young mothers and teachers will be too busy to pray with us at Shiloh Hakeduma, Tel Shiloh. We had a nice size group of various ages Rosh Chodesh Ellul, B"H. The turnout varies from month to month.

Ellul is a very special month in the Jewish Calendar. It's the month before Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Ellul is the time for heightened Teshuva, Repentance, before the gates close on Yom Kippur. Of course we're always supposed to do teshuva and not wait. Nobody knows when death or incapacity will come. Ellul is an extra important time to pray in Judaism's holy sites of which Shiloh is a major one.

Shiloh was the location of the Mishkan, Tabernacle which predated the Holy Temple in Jerusalem by close to one hundred years. For 369 years Shiloh was the Capital, main city for the Jewish People. It was in Shiloh, at the Tabernacle where Hannah prayed to Gd for a son who would lead the Jewish People from the anarchy of the time of Judges. Hannah's son was Samuel the Prophet, who annointed our first two kings, Saul and David.

Archeologist are active and busy in Shiloh Hakeduma, Tel Shiloh, discovering the ruins of Biblical age buildings and the city wall, which confirm the Biblical narrative.

As an archaeological site which welcomes tourists, Shiloh Hakeduma, Tel Shiloh, is constantly updating. There are all sorts of user friendly high tech activities to explain life in Biblical Shiloh. A visit is enjoyable and informative for all ages.

Dear Batya,

I humbly suggest that the next Tehillim
meeting at Shiloh HaKeduma be rescheduled for
THE DAY BEFORE Rosh Chodesh Elul,
to avoid a scheduling conflict with the
opening day of the Israeli school year.

This would allow young mothers and teachers
to pray with you at Shiloh HaKeduma.

I am not trying to tell you what to do,
Chas VeShalom; I am just trying
to make a helpful suggestion that would
permit more people to attend,
because BeRov ‘Am Hadrat Melech
(Mishlei, chapter 14, verse 28).

I have said this to you many times before,
because I really mean it, and now I will
say it to you again:

May G*D grant that the number of Jewish
women who pray at Shiloh HaKeduma
every month should always increase,
and never decrease.

Mr. Cohen

Mr. cohen, I suggest you check the calendar. Shabbat, which is also Rosh Chodesh, is a bit too difficult for most. And since one of the highlights of our dovening is singing Hallel together, the day before Rosh Chodesh just doesn't work.

Nell, amen, thanks
