Life Lessons with Judy Simon
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:
Our three week marathon of Jewish Holidays has almost ended. Soon it will quiet down. When I was an English Teacher, this was the most serious part of the school year, until Chanukah. G-d willing, we'll be blessed with rain, whether we deserve it or not. I write much more frequently on Shiloh Musings and me-ander; please visit. You may find those blogs more enjoyable and entertaining than this one. And check out the comments which are very different from the ones here.
I just came back from a lovely few hours at Tel Shiloh. There were totally peaceful and enjoyable activities for the entire family. You wouldn't have believed that international politicians, diplomats and the media are raising a storm about our living in our historic and holy Land. It sure seemed quiet and relaxing here.
