December 22nd – December 30th 2018

Throughout the world, Christmas is celebrated on three different dates depending on the Christian denomination.  Palestine has a rich and diverse Christian fellowship estimated to be 50,000 out of a population in the West Bank of 2.73 million Palestinians.  Palestinian followers of the Catholic and Protestant churches celebrate Christmas on the 25th of December; Palestinian followers of the Greek Orthodox Church celebrate it on the 6th of January; and Palestinian followers of the Armenian denomination celebrate Christmas on the 18th of January.

February 10th - February 18th 2018

The people of Palestine have been the care takers of olive trees for more than 4.500 years. Over the centuries, olive trees have become a prominent part of the landscape of Palestine and nature’s witnesses to the rise and fall of empires which have possessed and passed through the land.

March 24th - April 1st 2018
