ELCJHL Mourns Death  of Bishop Emeritus
Daoud Haddad

(Photos from the Bishop's Life)

Though Palestinian Christians have been here since the first Pentecost, the roots of the ELCJHL began in the mid 19th century when German and English missionaries came to teach and minister to the local people. Five of our six congregations are in Jerusalem, Ramallah and the Bethlehem area. The Church of Hope in Ramallah and the Church of the Good Shepherd in Amman, Jordan, are made up largely of families of refugees who fled their homes at the time of the tragic wars that followed the formation of Israel.  Our four schools and four additional educational programs are dedicated to the principles of innovative, holistic excellence, religious tolerance and peace-building.      

You will always find a Palestinian welcome “Ahlan Wa-sahlan” and an open door of hospitality and friendship when you visit our churches, schools and other institutions and programs.  We invite you to explore our website, learn more about who we are, what we do, and what we are working to achieve. And then come visit us.   You are always most welcome!
