Here's the English update from the interfaith encounter group of young adults from Jerusalem and Hebron that was held during February 10th-11th.
"We visited the big mosque and the Hassan Beck Mosque [in Jaffa] as well as mixed areas where Jews and Arabs live together. At 5pm we went to the Alajuza restaurant – to eat dinner and to hold the conversation of our group.
We held an introduction round between the 33 participants and then Yael presented Prophet Samuel, the theme of our encounter, according to the Jewish tradition. After her presentation we asked questions and had a discussion on the subject. At 9pm we broke and went home.
The Palestinian participants joined the Jewish participants for the ride to Jerusalem and to stay overnight with them.
In the second day we had a visit in Jerusalem. We all met in Nebi Samuel and visited the mosque there. At 11am, after we had breakfast together, we visited first a synagogue and then a mosque in the area. At 1pm we sat in a circle and I, Moatasem the representative of the Palestinian-Muslim group, presented Prophet Samuel from a Muslim perspective. When I ended we had questions and conversation of the theme until we ended at 3pm and fare-welled.
That came from The Interfaith Encounter Association, Website: http://www.interfaith-encounter.org/.
If Samuel the Prophet, they couldn't come out to Shiloh?
For it is recorded in Samuel I:1 -
19 And they rose up in the morning early, and worshipped before the LORD, and returned, and came to their house to Ramah; and Elkanah knew Hannah his wife; and the LORD remembered her. 20 And it came to pass, when the time was come about, that Hannah conceived, and bore a son; and she called his name Samuel: 'because I have asked him of the LORD.' 21 And the man Elkanah, and all his house, went up to offer unto the LORD the yearly sacrifice, and his vow. 22 But Hannah went not up; for she said unto her husband: 'Until the child be weaned, when I will bring him, that he may appear before the LORD, and there abide for ever.' 23 And Elkanah her husband said unto her: 'Do what seemeth thee good; tarry until thou have weaned him; only the LORD establish His word.' So the woman tarried and gave her son suck, until she weaned him. 24 And when she had weaned him, she took him up with her, with three bullocks, and one ephah of meal, and a bottle of wine, and brought him unto the house of the LORD in Shiloh; and the child was young. 25 And when the bullock was slain, the child was brought to Eli. 26 And she said: 'Oh, my lord, as thy soul liveth, my lord, I am the woman that stood by thee here, praying unto the LORD. 27 For this child I prayed; and the LORD hath granted me my petition which I asked of Him; 28 therefore I also have lent him to the LORD; as long as he liveth he is lent to the LORD.' And he worshipped the LORD there...and in Samuel I:2 -
18 But Samuel ministered before the LORD, being a child, girded with a linen ephod. 19 Moreover his mother made him a little robe, and brought it to him from year to year, when she came up with her husband to offer the yearly sacrifice. 20 And Eli would bless Elkanah and his wife, and say: 'The LORD give thee seed of this woman for the loan which was lent to the LORD.' And they would go unto their own home. 21 So the LORD remembered Hannah, and she conceived, and bore three sons and two daughters. And the child Samuel grew before the LORD.
Shiloh's the place.
