This is the third year of an event that has been growing in force since its inception - the Prayer of Chana, at the ancient Shilo site, where Chana beseeched G-d.
The composition of the group crosses all lines of age, personal observance, cultural origins or economic background.
Ancient Shilo was the site of the Tabernacle, which stood there for 369 years. During these years, the people of Israel would make a pilgrimage to the city and bring their llabor of love before God. The Shiloh Tabernacle was where Hannah prayed to be delivered of her barren status.
