Only six miles south of Jerusalem you will find Bethlehem, the birthplace of Jesus of Nazareth and a site of invaluable significance to the Christian world. Bethlehem remains to this day a prime destination for Pilgrimages to the Holy Land. Despite Bethlehem's proximity to the Israeli city of Jerusalem, it is situated in the West Bank and officially under Palestinian jurisdiction. The city houses one of the oldest Christian communities in the world, and is home to the largest Palestinian Christian community in the Middle East, Bethlehem's stout Christian community remains in tact, gaining much of its strength from Christian travel and tourism.
