Recent Building in Shiloh

There is such a market for homes here in Shiloh that there are even a couple of multifamily projects.

Shiloh is a living, thriving, growing Jewish community, aka small town, in the Biblical tribal Land of Efrayim, though in today’s Mateh Binyamin, Benjamin County.  Well over three hundred families live here, Jews of all ages, backgrounds etc.  At the recent Shiloh Conference #2, it was made clear that none of the archeology experts, even the most secular who do their best to find results to contradict the Bible, can deny that Shiloh was a very important city in ancient times.

At the tour of Tel Shiloh, we were told that when Joshua took over (there was no battle/opposition) the Canaanite city of Shiloh, the existing city walls were used as the base for new structures adding storage area etc.  Today, families are adding to their homes.

Once children marry and have children of their own, the old house isn’t large enough to house them all for visits, Shabbat, holidays etc.

Younger families are also building homes.

The homes are different styles and different construction techniques as you most probably notice.  There are few building regulations in Shiloh.  We don’t demand red or tile roofs, nor is it required to use stone-facings.

There is such a market for homes here in Shiloh that there are even a couple of multifamily projects.

This is very convenient, because new instant neighborhoods can be built in convenient locations, and the prices per unit are less than private one-family homes.  Even though housing in Shiloh is less per meter than in the cities and even some of the other yishuvim, it’s still a lot for some people.  These apartments are a good housing solution. Besides the fact that not everyone wants to deal with gardens etc.

No matter what you think of Jewish building in Judea and Samaria, you must admit that our homes are much smaller and less ostentatious than the humongous mansions the Arabs are building.

Chodesh Menachem Av Tov!

Why is an IRA a worthwhile account for retirement? And how can you use it to the best advantage?

Like the fighter pilot’s letter, I wonder if certain units are simply too sensitive to allow certain leftwingers to serve in, and to entrust in their hands the security of our country and our lives.

There is only one thing more tragic than experiencing a terror attack, and that is allowing those who attacked you to do it again!

Smuggling Gazans into Europe is cheaper than fighting with Gaza, and then rebuilding all the destruction.

Not only Israel, but World Jewry owes everything to the holy bravery of the IDF and its soldiers.

Reuters has an article up claiming that to rebuild Gaza it will cost $7.8 billion. (Reuters) – Rebuilding Gaza will cost $7.8 billion, the Palestinian Authority said on Thursday, in the most comprehensive assessment yet of damage from a seven-week war with Israel during which whole neighborhoods and vital infrastructure were flattened.

It’s time to accept that the world cares more for “Palestinian” fiction than Jewish rights in Israel

Connect the dots, please: All of these Muslim Arab terror organizations are connected.

There is absolutely nothing for Israel’s security in this American document.
