PS there were more women praying yesterday morning at Tel Shiloh than you can see in the pictures. Tel Shiloh is enormous; it's not claustrophobic like Kever Rachel. You can have hundreds, thousands of people and still have room and not feel crowded. The holiness is all around, not concentrated on a stone "coffin" and dead body. So there's no pushing and fighting. This is very Chana, not Rachel. The Biblical Rachel is described as physically beautiful, as are her descendants, Joseph and King Saul. There is no physical description of Chana. She is just a woman who knows how to communicate with G-d.
Just to let you know that Tel Shiloh is open for visitors and events. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 02-994-4019 for more details.
