NIGHT IN BETHLEHEM(Friday, 2017   7:00pm-9:00pm)

Walk through the streets of Bethlehem. Take part in the census.

Talk to shopkeepers, shepherds, Roman guards, and townspeople. 
Experience the sights, sounds, and smells of the “first” Christmas.

Have your family’s picture taken with the little town of Bethlehem in the background.

Make a toy in the carpenters shop, make your own pottery, purchase soap and spices with (provided) shekels.
Take home homemade breads and taste candy from the candy shop.  

 

As you wind through the streets of Bethlehem, you will hear the exciting story of what has happened there.  

Follow the awestruck shepherds to the manger where Mary, Joseph, and the Christ Child are,

“because there was no room for them in the inn".

This will be a“living” nativity.
 
This could be the blessing of the season for you and your family. You will not want to miss it!  
There is no charge. This is our gift to you and your family.                         
Pre-registration is not a requirement, just a suggestion.
Reservations will also be taken that evening.
A tour starts every 10 minutes

 

You may register online below, or by calling 416-247-8701
