Sindyanna of Galilee
On the back of a successful report from The World Mission Council, The Friends of St Andrew’s Jerusalem, are excited to be able to continue supporting Sindyanna of Gallilee, a commitment they have undertaken for the next four years.
Since their establishment in 1996 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.

Supplementing a haven of peace and comfort
As part of the enrichment of the back of the Church for Bible studies, prayer meetings and events for smaller groups, the Friends have facilitated the acquisition of chairs and tables. We have also enabled the purchase of a rug from Lakiya Negev Bedouin Weaving.
