Shiloh Welcomes Shiloh


Residents of the West Bank settlement of Shiloh voiced pleasure at having a new namesake in the daughter of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie: Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt..

"Residents of ancient and renewed Shiloh wish the new Shiloh good health and a productive life," community official Yisrael Medad said in a statement circulated this week.

Shiloh means "peaceful one."

It was also the biblical site where Joshua first divided up the newly conquered Land of Israel among the 12 tribes descended from the patriarch Jacob. Today, it is a mostly Modern Orthodox community of 1,500.

The baby, who is the couple's first biological child, was born Saturday, May 27 in Namibia.
