My friend,

Thank you for stopping by Shiloh Guy. I will be visiting your site too hoping to find out a little more. I love your pictures on Views of Shiloh.

We founded our church in 2004 and named it Shiloh because that was where the tabernacle was first set up in the Promised Land. For me it was a picture of God's fulfilled promises to his people. The first place he dwelt among his people after they stopped their journey. I wanted our congregation to reflect a place of peace and communion with God. I wanted our people to represent the fulfillment of God's promises.

My Hebrew is rusty, to say the least! I only studied ancient Hebrew anyway.

I was in Israel in 1972 for a couple of weeks. I was almost 19 years old and I was all alone there. I did my best to find my way around but those were difficult days and I had trouble finding help. (I was on my way home to the States after several months working for the US Government in the newly established Bangladesh.

What is a Revenant in Yesha?

Revenant is my alternate term for the word "settler". It is my feeling that the use of the word "settler" and "settlement" is slightly (or more) perjorative as if we Jews do not belong in that area. I prefer revenant or even simply resident and "community", or "town" or "viilage" or "city". Revenant itself comes from the French, revenir, which means returning to ancestral home after a long absence (it's in Ivanhoe). "Settlement", I think, conjures up some foreign presence parallel to "reservation" in the US. This, of course, is all politics, but I don't apologize for my politics
