Christians presence in the Palestinian center of Ramallah, 16 kilometers north of Jerusalem. A journey in one of the most multicultural and religious cities of the territory.
The city of Ramallah, 16 kilometers north of Jerusalem, owes its name to two words that mean “God wanted.”
It is characterized by a growing rapidly population, due to an internal migration from rural areas and other cities. Thanks to the growing job opportunities, residents have already exceeded 200 thousand people, according to the Palestinian statistics office.
Despite the changes, Ramallah continues to attract the Christian immigrants from the northern areas of the West Bank.
Since the ancient times, Christians have found here a suitable place to settle.
There are five churches of different denominations documenting their presence and various schools enrolling Christians and Muslims students.
