Ahijah the Shilonite

Teacher of Elijah. After Solomon's death, he prophesied that the northern ten tribes would secede from the Davidic dynasty ruled by the Kings of Judah and crown Jeroboam as their king. He later prophesied that Jeroboam and his family’s royal dynasty would be annihilated as punishment for Jeroboam's sinful ways. According to chassidic tradition, Ahijah was the Baal Shem Tov’s primary teacher.
