About Us

We invite you to walk the paths of Ancient Shiloh, discover the Bible stories and the different periods among the stones and the fascinating archeological findings.

Every great story starts in a specific place…and ours starts here.

This is the place where, starting from the time when Joshua Ben Nun led the Jewish People, the Tabernacle stood for 369; the place where the tribal inheritances were divided among the tribes. Here the Tu b’Av festival of love celebrations took place, and the tribes were reunited.

Here is where Elkana came, “to worship and offer sacrifices to God in Shiloh,” and this is where Hannah prayed for a son. Her prayer was answered. Samuel was born and Hannah brought him here, where he grew up to be a prophet and a leader.

Shiloh was also the home of Ahiya the Shilonite, who prophesied to Jeroboam the son of Nebat, about the division of the kingdom of the House of David after King Solomon’s reign, and about the exile of the Ten Tribes of Israel.

Ancient Shiloh brings you an experience that connects the past with the future, heaven and earth, nation and individual, the Bible and the landscape all around.

A visit to Ancient Shiloh includes futuristic multi-media presentations that tell the fascinating and unique stories of ancient Shiloh and the Tabernacle.
