Project Overview 

TheJerusalem Initiative project will benefit Christians from the Old City and East Jerusalem who live in Israel and want to integrate into Israeli society. The project will take place over the year of 2021 and the activities will take place in Jerusalem, with 5 trips around the country.

Anew phenomena is happening in Jerusalem where Christians are beginning to want to be integrated into Israeli society as equal citizens and to begin to enjoy all their rights and fulfilling all their duties, whilst retaining their unique culture and religious identity as Aramaic Christians.  This project assists these Christians to begin to integrate into Israeli society and  to move from being in a parallel society toward joining all aspects of Israel’s vibrant democracy.  The main pillars used to overcome barriers to integration are through Hebrew language courses, educational & enrichment programs, and providing assistance to overcome Israeli bureaucracy (which prevents many Christians from obtaining their full rights).

Project Details 
Project Plan

Christians in the Middle East face persecution on different levels of severity throughout all the countries in the region. This has led to large waves of emigration and the dwindling of local Christian communities of all denominations. Israel remains the only country in the region where Christians feel safe and can thrive. Following the recent spread of radical Islamic ideology throughout the region (e.g. ISIS), many Arabic speaking Christians in Israel have come to see their future more as partners of a democracy.

This project builds true bridges bringing equality and prosperity to all faiths that want to access their rights and contribute to the country they live in - Israel
