Olivewood products from Bethlehem are made by Palestinian Christian artisans using centuries-old traditional techniques. Bethlehem olivewood is a traditional souvenir of pilgrims returning from the Holy Land, because carving is one of the only economic activities available to the residents of the City of David. The Holy Land Christian Ecumenical Foundation (HCEF) strives to support the Palestinian Christians by finding markets for their products as one of many aid and awareness activities.
Olivewood from Bethlehem represents a message of Christmas: peace and goodwill to people on earth. These cutting boards bring hope to the people of Bethlehem, site of the nativity, and beauty to every kitchen. Consider an olivewood cutting board for your own kitchen, or as a gift for the cooks in your life!
