News & Call-In with Tamar Yonah
Batya Medad made aliya from New York to Israel in 1970 and has been living in Shiloh since 1981. Recently she began organizing women's visits to Tel Shiloh for Psalms and prayers. (For more information, please email her.) Batya is a newspaper and magazine columnist, a veteran jblogger and recently stopped EFL teaching. She's also a wife, mother, grandmother, photographer and HolyLand hitchhiker, always seeing things from her own very unique perspective. For more of Batya's writings and photos, check out:
First of all, Chag Sameach, Happy Jerusalem Day.
In the above picture, you can see Jerusalem's lightrail trolley train in action. OK, it's just a "rehearsal," but it gives us a taste, whiff of the future.
Just in case you don't read this to the end, I'd like to remind you that Friday is Rosh Chodesh Sivan, and G-d willing there will be Women's Prayers at Tel Shiloh. Please let others know about it. You can drive or take Egged public transport to Shiloh. If you're going by public transport, please let me know, thanks.
Rosh Chodesh Sivan

תפילת נשים תל שילה ראש חודש סיון
As usual, the reminder that I blog more frequently and on a greater variety of topics on my other blogs, Shiloh Musings and me-ander. Please visit and tell others about them. Of course, you're welcome to comment there, too. And now for the main attraction:
Today we had visitors to Tel Shiloh, the AFSI tour. Helen Freedman brings groups on a regular basis to Israel and gets to Shiloh whenever she can.
One of the participants, and not the first time with AFSI to Shiloh, was the legendary Glenn Richter, who led SSSJ the Student Struggle for Soviet Jewry. My husband and I were part of the movement from the middle 1960's until our aliyah in the summer of 1970.
I'll be back down at Tel Shiloh for Women's Prayers, G-d willing, on Friday Rosh Chodesh Sivan, May 14, 2010. Join us please, and tell others about it!
The Tel is open to tourists all weekdays. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 02-994-4019
