The Bet Lahem Live festival links local communities to global action with an extensive list of local and international performers and workshops in four full days of activities.
Our 3 pillars are JUSTICE, FAITH, and CULTURE with a list of activities ranging from concerts, workshops, parades and theater productions, justice and faith panels, conferences, multi-faith activities, movie screenings, educational engagements tours, art gallery, creative hub, and A VARIETY OF community activities.
We CELEBRATE culture while CHALLENGING our local and international notions of justice, faith and community in a globalized world through a multitude of events.
“We wanted to create a platform that really represents the fluidity of our culture, the spirit of community and the universality of our values. This isn’t your run of the mill festival, but a catalyst setting for each participant to really challenge themselves in believing the impossible is possible.”
Sami Awad – Founder and Director of Holy Land Trust
Faith, Culture & Justice
Bet Lahem Live celebrates diversity of faiths and belief systems in our city and globally. We promote values built on acceptance and respect of differences. We encourage human connection in shared values, trust, and heritage.
Bet Lahem Live explores our rich and living culture through our customs and arts. Our living heritage links our past, present and future to create a platform for future peace, creativity and cultural exchange.
Bet Lahem Live supports restorative and social justice—the understanding of one another's needs, and encouraging individual responsibility for the community. We challenge injustice and promote the fair sharing of resources. Every individual human being should have the same rights and opportunities.
