Life goes on at Jeel al Amal

To all friends of Jeel al Amal

Alice and Basil were Christian Palestinians. Basil was Greek Orthodox and Alice was Latin, as the Roman Catholics are named there. Once Alice told me about their marriage.

The Roman Catholic priest talked about the children that could be born. He urged Alice to promise that she would educate them as members of the Roman Catholic Church. Alice frankly answered she had no intention to do so. “The Sahhar Family in Jerusalem has played an important role in the Greek Orthodox Community in Jerusalem for ages. The children of Basil are Sahhars. They will become Greek Orthodox.”

Alice remained Latin herself. But she was buried next to Basil at the Greek Orthodox Cemetery. After 40 days at Saturday November 8th there will be, according to the local practice, a blessing at the graveside by a Greek Orthodox priest. And Sunday is the Eucharist in the Greek Orthodox Church of Mar Elias, along the road between Jerusalem and Bethlehem.

May Alice rest in peace together with Basil. In the mean time at Jeel al Amal, the heritage of their hands work, life goes on. Colourful and bright as this recent picture shows.
