Sheikh Jarrah to light community Christmas tree

Dec. 16, 2010 3:07 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 16, 2010 10:59 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- National and religious institutions in Jerusalem invited guests to join Sheikh Jarrah families in lighting its Christmas tree Monday at 4 p.m.

Organizers said the event would be a chance to "voice your rejection and opposition to Israel’s ethnic cleansing policy in Jerusalem," and support the "lawful struggle" of many residents to remain in their homes.

In Bethlehem, the Holy Land Christian Ecumenical Foundation will host a tree-decorating contest for Palestinian communities across the West Bank in an effort to encourage community participation in holiday traditions.

Contestants must design and implement a large-scale Christmas tree exhibit completed by the children of the community and ready for presentation by Dec. 17.
