The ancient Biblical city of Shiloh preceded Jerusalem as the home of the Tabernacle. It was the first site of the Tabernacle after the Children of Israel reached the Land, before the establishment of the Temple. After arriving in Israel, Joshua portioned out lands to each of the tribes and sent them out to settle their holdings. The tribes of Reuben, Gad, and half of Manasseh set up their own competing altar to God. The other tribes reacted quickly, gathering together at Shiloh and threatening to make war if the smaller group did not put an end to this practice. Though the entire Land of Israel is Holy, God desires that His people unite to serve him with a single center of worship, which at that time was Shiloh. Today, the modern city of Shiloh stands on the site of ancient Shiloh, preserving an incredibly important Jewish site. Impressive archeological finds have been uncovered there, making it a must-see for any visitor who yearns to connect to Israel’s Biblical beginnings.
