Olive Harvest

Olive harvesting in Bethlehem is a special time and holds great symbolic importance as the living connection that has tied these people to their land for generations and continues to do so today. Today this tradition is being threatened as families in Bethlehem face the struggle of maintaining access to their olive trees due to harassment and property destruction by settlers, restricted access to their land, and even land confiscation. 

In this experience you will join local Palestinian families for the fall olive harvest under the warm autumn sun and share in this great tradition while learning first-hand the challenges facing Bethlehemite families as they hold onto the traditions that have tied them to their land for thousands of years.
