Bnai Akiva Comes to Shiloh!

Due to the weather, all of the TU B'Shvat festivities, plantings etc were postponed a week. Here in Shiloh, Shiloh Hakeduma, Tel Shiloh to be exact we hosted a major part of the Bnai Akiva youth movement, the Jerusalem, Gush Etzion and Mateh Binyamin sniffim, or chapters/branches/clubs. I went down to the Tel to see what was happening.

Considering the massive numbers of kids, hundreds or even thousands, I doubt that they all planted trees. And I left before that part of the festivities had begun. And festivities there were.... Here are some photos; you can find more on my facebook.








These photos were taken when I was on my way to Jerusalem by bus. Apparently the plantings were all over the Shiloh area.

Our youngest chanicha, Adiel, loved it! And our madrich, Yair, did a great job.
thanks for hosting so many, it was a thrilling amazing view, seeing what may have been thousands pouring over the mountain, walking the ancient runner's path between Shiloh and Eli.

With regards from the Gush :)
