      Chodesh Elul Tov, Tel Shiloh

      See the light!
       
      This year, according to the Jewish Calendar is almost over.  At the end of the day, shadows get longer.
       
       
      Forty-three years ago, G-d was very merciful to us and enabled us to defeat the enemy armies from Jordan, Syria and Egypt.  As a result we have been holding onto our historic Biblical Homeland.  That means that all sorts of sites where Jewish History took place are in Jewish hands.  Let's take advantage of it.
       
      How to pray is shown to us in the story of Chana, when she prays in Shiloh for a son who is to lead the Jewish People from a loose tribal federation to a nation ruled by a king.
       
      Shiloh is the place to pray.  Please join me tomorrow, Women's Prayers at Tel Shiloh.  It's the place to pray to G-d, each of us as we need.
