Shilo (page 1 of 2)

Shilo, capital of Israel for 369 years. The Torah and the Talmud tells us that the Tabernacle was erected on the first day of Nisan (spring time), 2449 Hebrew year of Creation - almost 3320 years ago. It served as the focal point of Divine worship and of unity for the Children of Israel for approximately 500 years. The Tabernacle (The Mishkon) accompanied the nation in the desert (Bamidbar), during the process of taking possession of the Promised Land (the covenant of Abraham) and served as the spiritual focal point for United Israel until the construction of the First Temple by King Solomon. Upon entering the Land of Israel it stood for 14 years Gilgal, for 369 in Shilo and for 57 in Nob and Gibeon. After the First Temple was completed, the records of the Sages of Israel indicate that the Tabernacle was concealed in subterranean chambers beneath the BetHaMikdash (The Holy Temple) in Jerusalem, in the Old City, on the Temple Mount.
