Ancient Prayers ✡ “She Prayed To Hashem, Weeping All The While” – Israel365

In her wretchedness, she prayed to Hashem,
weeping all the while.

וְהִיא מָרַת נָפֶשׁ וַתִּתְפַּלֵּל עַל־יְהוָה וּבָכֹה תִבְכֶּה

שמואל א א:י
v’-HEE ma-RAT NA-fesh va-tit-pa-LAYL al a-do-NAI u-va-KHOH tiv-KEH

Today’s Israel Inspiration

The Book of Samuel opens with a heartbroken Chana who has no children, and therefore goes to pray at the Mishkan (tabernacle) in Shiloh.  The Mishkan stood in Shiloh for 369 years before the building of the Beit Hamikdash in Yerushalayim.  During that time, Shiloh served as the central focal point of the national service to Hashem. Unfortunately, many of the Israelites ignored the Mishkan, and refrained from visiting it for the pilgrimage festivals. Therefore, when Elkana and Chana, who were prophets, made their pilgrimages to Shiloh, they travelled along different routes each time, in order to encourage others to join them, and to serve Hashem properly.  Established in 1978, contemporary Shiloh is a thriving Jewish community built adjacent to the ancient site where the Mishkan stood and where Chana prayed for a child. In addition to the fascinating archaeological site, excavated by the Israel Antiquities Authority, modern Shiloh contains several synagogues, one of which is built as a replica of the Mishkan. However, Shiloh is in a community over the Green Line. Sadly, it has been struck by repeated acts of terror – and many of the children of Shiloh suffer from mental and physical challenges as a result. The Shiloh Israel Children’s Fund focuses on helping these affected children lead normal and happy lives.

Judaism in Israel began in the ancient city of Shiloh. Shiloh is now a gem of archaeology!

Expansion of Halamish in the Face of Terror

As the people of Halamish in Samaria slowly recover from the brutal  murders of three members of the Salomon family expansion of the Halamish community has begun.

Archaeological Proofs of the Validity of the Bible

For many years, it seemed as if there were no archaeological remains from the period when the Israelite nation entered the Land of Israel as recorded in the book of Joshua. Recent investigations have revealed hundreds of priorly unknown Israelite sites from this historical period. Watch now to witness breathtaking discoveries of archaeological evidence of the Jewish Nation entering the Promised Land.
