Field Trip to Beit Hagath

By Dr. Yehuda Stolov | Executive Director

During the visit

On June 28th, the Reut-Sadaqa Interfaith Encounter group had a very moving field trip to Beit Hagath, in Ein Karem with Etienne Lepicard MD, PhD, who is its founder and inspiration.

Beit Hagath was originally the farm for the Sisters of Notre Dame de Sion which is now under jurisdiction of Monastery of Abu Ghosh. Beit Hagath’s natural setting full of flowers and gardens maintains a certain wildness in which the soul can flourish. It is a unique location which approaches interfaith in a unique and humane way. A Christian, Jew and Muslim live together on its grounds and have breakfast every morning together.

They have interfaith study groups, e.g. studying the weekly Torah portion with the Hebrew Midrash and Christian Fathers, such as 3rd century commentator Origen who lived in the Holy Land. Later study of Qu’ran was added. It hosts an interfaith music festival and many other projects. One of the most stimulating is its partnership with the Master Chef Ezra Kedem, who teaches culinary skills to hearing impaired high school students or students of cooking from Notre Dame centre, opposite New Gate who come to learn and cook and taste together in an atmosphere that is reflected in the architecture of the kitchen and nearby dining room, both of which are made of transparent glass. It seemed a powerful metaphor for their open hearted work. We came away smiling.
