Visiting Shiloh's New Neighborhood

I guess you can call it "pioneering in an established yishuv," (Jewish community in the Land of Israel.)  Ten houses, stage one, are completed, sold and lived in already.  It's a short distance from the entrance to Shiloh.  There's an interesting mix of people living there, mostly but not all young families.  Quite a few of the homeowners grew up in Shiloh.  More and more of our kids are moving back home to raise their children here, which is good news for the future.

Last night the community Simchat Beit Hashoeva Succot event was visiting  a couple of succot in that neighborhood.  It was very enjoyable meeting new neighbors.  Since my own children have long ago graduated from school, I have to make more of an effort to meet people who are out of my neighborhood and synagogue.  I'm glad I went last night.
