Israel Unlocked: Shiloh, Home of the Tabernacle [THURSDAY]

Dear Times of Israel Community member,

Please join us this Thursday, July 22, for a special installment of our Israel Unlocked virtual tour series, exclusive to the ToI Community. This week, in honor of Tu B’Av, the ancient-turned-modern-day Jewish holiday of love, we will tour Shiloh, the home of the Tabernacle for almost four centuries.

Our expert guide Shulie Mishkin will teach us what this holiday really is and how it is connected to Shiloh. What has archaeology discovered in ancient Shiloh? What do we know about the surrounding area of the Shomron? Join us on this special tour in honor of an ancient, joyous holiday!

About our guide: Shulie Mishkin made aliyah from New York with a Master’s degree in Jewish History from Columbia University. After completing the Ministry of Tourism guide course in 1997, she began guiding professionally and has since taught and guided all ages, from toddlers to retirees.

Shulie’s tours provide a complete picture of the Land of Israel and Jewish heritage, with a strong reliance on sources ranging from the Bible to 19th-century travelers’ reports. Alongside her regular guide work, she teaches “tour and text” courses in the Jerusalem institutions of Pardes and Matan and provides tours for special needs students in the “Darkaynu” program. Shulie lives in Alon Shvut with her husband Jonathan and their five kids.
