Chodesh Tov! Monday Dovening at Tel Shiloh

Just a quick reminder that tomorrow, Monday the 1st of Iyyar and the 16th of April, 2018, we'll be having our traditional Women's Rosh Chodesh Prayers at Shiloh Hakeduma, Tel Shiloh at 8:30am.

We sing Hallel out loud together, and the rest of the Rosh Chodesh morning prayers are done individually/silently.

While walking from the entrance of the Biblical/Ancient Shiloh archaeology site, we get to see many of the latest discoveries. Tel Shiloh is a very active and exciting archaeological site. More and more has been discovered that reaffirms and clarifies the Biblical narrative. Unlike the simplistic interpretations that Shiloh was abandoned after the death of Eli the High Priest, the latest discoveries show that Shiloh remained a very busy and important location during Biblical times and afterwards.

Rosh Chodesh is the beginning of the Jewish Month, and it is traditionally known as a Women's Holiday, which is an especially good reason to join us.

If you want you can sign up for the regular tour program at Tel Shiloh, either while already there, or write to It's open to visitors six days a week.

During Jewish Holiday times, Chanukah and the Intermediate Days (Hol Hamoed) of Succot and Passover there are special activities for all ages.

For those who understand spoken Hebrew I highly recommend Kenes Shiloh, held every summer, when there are tours and lectures throughout the day and evening highlighting the latest archaeological discoveries.

Chodesh Tov! Have a Wonderful Blessed Month of Iyyar!!
