Shalom and Salaam!

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
‘May they prosper who love you.
Peace be within your walls,
and security within your towers.’
For the sake of my relatives and friends
I will say, ‘Peace be within you.’
(Psalm 122:6)

On our German webpages, you will find more detailed information about:

- our pastoral ministries
- our ministries for pilgrims and tourists
- our educational, theological and archaeological research ministries.

But the best way to get to know us, of course, would be for you to visit us, actually rather than virtually, at our facilities in Jerusalem or in Amman, Jordan. We would be more than happy to welcome you!
