    If you purchase these ornaments you will be making a connection to Bethlehem itself ...not only in possessing objects from there, but in the olive wood nourished and grown in the soils of the Holy Land. The making of these ornaments are depicted in the film, Israel - Stories From the Holy Lands. We see some citizens of Bethlehem working the olive wood, and we see a young Palestinian man and his wife producing these Christmas decorations in their home. Adnan Ayesh and his wife, Samya, have been making these ornaments as they struggle to support themselves and their six children...in a land where life has grown quite difficult. Please go to the website and purchase directly from Adnan. We have known Adnan and have done business with him for years and can vouch for his absolute honesty and integrity. You can rest assured that purchases can be made with confidence from this site, and in doing so you will not only have a precious part of the Holy Lands, but will be helping someone who is determined to succeed in spite of so many obstacles stacked against him.
