Near the beginning of the Timkat (Epiphany) procession, the priests accompanying the tabot (a replica of the Tablets of the Law, said to be the contents of the Ark of the Covenant), which is carried covered, over the head of the priest on the left edge of the image, pause to wait for the tabot of another group of churches to join them in procession to Jan Meda field, where a dozen churches will converge to celebrate together.
