Bethany School for Girls

Bethany school for girls – Resurrection of Christ community

Bethany School for Girls is situated just outside the wall separating Israel and the West Bank. The school’s present situation is dire and Steps for Christianity is determined to support the school in any way we can, primarily by raising funds for vital projects.

On our visit to the school in early April 2019 we were welcomed by Mother Mary and could confirm that this school is one of the last remaining Christian outposts on the Palestinian side of the wall and it is situated in a law less country right in the middle of one the hubs for trafficking arms and drugs  in the area.

No police is present in Bethany/Al-Eizariya, the water situation is dire, food is intermittently scarce, power supplies are inconsistent at best. However, the sisters strive on, caring for the girls in an environment directly hostile to females.

The school has 435 students and the boarding school has up to 14 students.

We need to step up and put ourselves in between the Bethany school and everything threatening it. 

Background: Many years ago the school was founded by the Scottish Anglican converts Mother Mary and Mother Martha, named just like the sisters of Saint Lazarus. They converted to the Russian Orthodox church/White Russians, and this church still runs the school today.
