Wednesday, July 22, is the first of the month of Av. It's the middle of the three week period we
Wed., July 22, 9:30am
mourn the destruction of our Holy Temple in Jerusalem.

Before we had a Beit HaMikdash, we had the Mishkan, the Tabernacle. The Tabernacle stood in Shiloh for 369 years. Shiloh was the first capital of the Jewish nation, before the kings ruled.

Think about how long a period of time it was and how primitive communication. But during all those centuries contact was kept between the Jewish Tribes. We worshiped the same G-d the same way. Our children were taught the same history.

Thirty-one and a half years ago, the Jewish People returned to Shiloh and established a town. We have hundreds of Jewish families, a yeshiva, a large elementary school, stores, a library and more.

And every Rosh Chodesh women come to Shiloh to pray. Please join us on Wed., July 22, 9:30am.

Tel Shiloh is open to visitors daily. For more information email
