A working day to rehabilitation of Mahrur restaurant in Beit Jala
01/06/2012 14:00-18:00

The Jerusalem-Bethlehem Combatants for Peace group would like to invite you to a joint Israeli-Palestinian activity, aimed at cleaning and clearing up the wreckage at the site of the Al-Makhrour restaurant, outside Beit Jala.

On Thursday, May 3rd, the Al-Makhrour restaurant was demolished by IDF bulldozers, following a demolition order issued by the Israeli civil administration in 2005.

The owners of the restaurant are Michelle and Ramzi Qesieh, whose house in Beit Jala was demolished during the second Intifada. About a year ago, the family built their new house next to the restaurant, for which a demolition order has been issued as well, and could be executed at any given time.

In the past few months the restaurant has hosted groups touring the Bethlehem area with Combatants for Peace, and so became a place of peace and dialogue between Israelis and Palestinians.

On Friday, June 1st , we will hold a third joint activity at the site, in order to clear the wreckage and prepare the grounds for rebuilding the restaurant.

We will gather at 14:00 at the Teddy Stadium parking lot, and drive together in private cars. Estimated time of return: 18:00.
