The Visitors Centre
The creation of a Visitors Centre in the Guest House is an obvious choice for The Friends of St Andrews. A point of reference for all visitors, it will provide contextual information and history of the Church of Scotland in the Holy Land.
Sindyanna of Galilee
Alongside the Church of Scotland, The Friends of St Andrew’s Jerusalem are excited to be associated with Sindyanna. Over the years Sindyanna has initiated a number of projects that promote their core values of reclamation, modernization of traditional Arab farming and agriculture, women empowerment, Jewish-Arab coexistence and fair trade.
Based in Kana of Galilee Sindyanna actively promotes “business for peace” through these projects. Profits from sales of olive oil are channelled back into their work; this fits well with The Friends of St Andrews’ objective to support an on-going educational venture.
