An Israeli heritage committee has allocated NIS 5 million (about $1.3 million) for the renovation and preservation of Tel Shiloh, the site where, according to Biblical tradition, the Ark of the Covenant rested within the Israelite Tabernacle during the time of Eli and Samuel (1 Samuel 1:1–4).* The preservation project, one of the first to be conducted at a West Bank site, will include renewed excavations, as well as the building of a visitor center where tourists can learn about life in the Biblical period. In addition to the government allocation, the preservation efforts will be financed by more than $2.5 million from private sources.
