This year the Shiloh HaKeduma, Ancient Shiloh staff were sure that they had learned from last year’s mistake.  At last year’s T’fillat Chana, the couple of thousand seats for Rabbanit Yemima Mizrachi’s riveting talk and the following musical performance weren’t enough.  This year they set up for an audience of three thousand, and to make it more comfortable and easier viewing they had a special extra section with an enormous screen.  People still complained that there weren’t enough seats; the estimated attendance was three thousand, three hundred, 3,300 woman, young and old from all over the country, students, mothers, retirees and lots more.

I’m certain that in Biblical times, during the close to four hundred years when Jewish Pilgrims came to Shiloh to pray there were also stalls to buy food, clothing and more.

I go to Tel Shiloh every Rosh Chodesh to pray with other women.  Our groups are smaller than the thousands who came to the T’fillat Chana.

Next Rosh Chodesh is the beginning of the Month of Cheshvan.
