Kenes Shiloh 2022, Better Than Ever
I've included a selection of photos in no particular order.
I particularly enjoyed the Biblical ones, since my "chevruta," the Bible study group I'm in has been learning Jeremiah, which was mentioned by some of the speakers. In Jeremiah the destruction is mentioned as a given, though there is nothing written about such an event prior. Good question.
The archeology section of the talks concentrated on new discoveries highlighting Scott Stripling, who was finally able to bring his professionally skilled volunteers for a dig and our home-grown archeologist Reut Leviatan Ben-Arye.
In the "basilica," there was an exhibit celebrating one hundred years since the Danish expedition to Shiloh, the first modern dig here.
Shiloh Hakeduma, Ancient Shiloh is open weekdays, and I highly recommend visiting. There's lots to see and do. It can also be reached by public transportation, a short walk from the Shiloh Junction. Contact Phone: 02-5789122, Fax: 02-9948011 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
