HELLO ALEX


FURTHER TO YOUR MAIL OF NOVEMBER 28, 2008 I WOULD LIKE TO

PROVIDE YOU WITH TWO ADDITIONAL MEANNINGS OR SOURCES TO

THE NAME LOYA IN BIBLE AND HEBREW TRADITION:


1. AS YOU SURELY KNOW WHEN THE HEBREWS CONQUERED KNAAN

AFTER ESCAPPING FROM EGYPT, THE LAND WAS DIVIDED BETWEEN

THE TRIBES.

EACH TRIBE GOT A TERITORY EXCEPT THE LEVI TRIBE WHO WAS

GRANTED THE RIGHT TO BUILD 44 REFUGE CITYES/SETELMENTS

WITHIN THE OTHER TRIBES TERITORY AS A REFUGE FOR WHO HAD

COMMITED UNINTENTIONALY CRIME, MURDER/KILL, ETC….

THIS CITYS WERE CALLED LOYA CITYS.


2. IN ADDITION TO THE ABOVE MENTIONED THE AREA IN THE

HEBREW TEMPLE [ CALLED BEIT HAMIKDASH - IN HEREW ] WHERE

THE LEVI TRIBE SERVED, WAS CALLED LOYA AREA.

TILL THIS DAY THERE ARE A REMAINS OF ANCIENT SETELMENT IN

LAKISH DISTRICT NEAR THE CITY OF KIRIAT GAT IN ISRAEL,

NAMED HIRBET LOYA IN ARABIC IT MEANS RUINS OF LOYA .

I HOPE YOU WOULD BE ABLE TO UNDERSTAND MY ENGLISH AND THIS

INFO. WILL BE USEFULL TO YOU .

PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED IF YOU HAVE ANY FURTHER INFO. ON OUR

ROOTS , SOURCE ETC…..
