Ancient Shiloh was the first spiritual and political center of ancient Israelites during the Settlement period. Joshua bin Nun established the Mishkan (Tabernacle) in Shiloh (Joshua 18:1), and it was here that the country was apportioned to the tribes.
For 369 years, the holy ark was kept in the tabernacle, until the first holy temple was built by King Solomon in Jerusalem. For this period, Shilo was the holiest city to the ancient Israelites, to which a pilgrimage was made three times a year.
The modern synagogue of Shiloh was designed with motifs from the ancient tabernacle, both inside and outside. The photos of this collection show these motifs and internal replicas.
