 (March 2, 2024) Dear Friends of the Shiloh Excavations,

After months of prayer and counsel, we are moving forward with the 2024 Shiloh Excavation season. The Antiquities Authority has issued our dig permit, and our hotel will be open. Volunteers can now register for the Shiloh Dig/Tours and pay the $500 deposit. After you register, our staff will follow up with more information and instructions. The situation in Israel could change at any time and cause cancellation of the Dig, so all volunteers must purchase travelers’ insurance covering loss of life, repatriation, illness, and flight cancellation. All participants will be required to sign a liability waiver as well. We ask you to continue to pray with us for all plans connected to the 2024 season. Pray most of all for peace and safety in Israel for our entire team, and the nation more broadly. We greatly appreciate your ongoing support and partnership.

Yours in Christ Jesus, The ABR Leadership Team
