HAND CARVED IN BETHLEHEM
Please stop by the tables of religious wares (nativity set, rosaries, statues, crucifixes, charms, etc.) after all the masses the weekend of February 13th & 14th

Ayman Khair represents approximately 140 Christian families from Bethlehem. These families dependent upon sales of their hand carved religious articles to tourists of the Holy Land. Due to the conflict in the Middle East, the tourism has been cut off. In order to survive, they have turned to Christian communities in the United States to purchase their articles. These hand carved religious articles are beyond description. Carved from wood of the sacred olive tree, this workmanship has been traditional for these families for hundreds of years. It is hoped that through the efforts of Mr. Khair these families may have a little income and are able to stay living in the Holy Land. Amazingly enough, the Christians population dropped from 22% to less than 2% in the last 30 years. Thank you in advance for your support.
