Ladies, Live The Dream!

Har Habayit, The Temple Mount
As far as I'm concerned we're all living in a very special time of Biblical significance. Hadn't the Jewish People been dreaming of a return to the Land of Israel and Jewish Sovereignty for thousands of years?

The Jewish State has come back to life, and mass influxes of Jews to the Holy Land have been happening for close to a century. I personally have memories of miracles of Biblical proportions, the 1967 Six Days War, the 1973 Yom Kippur War and other amazing Israeli victories and impossible, though true stories of Jewish survival.

Since 1967 some of Judaism's holiest places are now in our hands and still easily accessible. One of them is Shiloh, yes where I live. Shiloh was Judaism's first religious and administrative capital, yes before Jerusalem. The Holy Mishkan, Tabernacle stood here for 369 years.  It was the center of Jewish Prayer, personal and national. Today's Jewish Laws of Prayer were formulated on how Chana prayed in Shiloh for a son. That son was born, Shmuel Hanavi, Samuel the Prophet. Today women can come to the very location where Chana prayed so successfully and pray for whatever is important, whatever they need. There's no reason to travel to Uman or to fight over the limited space in Kever Rachel (Tomb) when Shiloh is so large and the air so inviting.

In Shiloh we feel the holiness all around and don't have to touch stones or tombs.

One can come to  the holy site of Shiloh Hakeduma, Ancient Shiloh almost anytime. Guided tours can be arranged through the Shiloh HaKeduma, Ancient Shiloh office. Email visit@telshilo.org.il or phone 02-994-4019.

I organize Women's Rosh Chodesh (first of the Jewish Month) Prayers, and the there is also a very impressive and enjoyable, Tefillat Chana, Hanna's Prayer, an afternoon/evening of special activities for women and teenage girls.

It will be this Wednesday. Information is on the poster.
