What is the significance of Bethany?
Bethany is first and foremost a place very close to Christ, and where His friend Lazarus, along with his sisters Martha and Mary, lived. It was here that He accomplished one of the greatest miracles, the resurrection of Lazarus, who had been dead for four days. Our community is within walking distance of the tomb of Lazarus, and on our property lies a small chapel enclosing the rock where St. Martha met Jesus on his journey from Jerusalem to Bethany. Additionally, we are home to the Orthodox School of Bethany. The school is one of the best private school for girls in the area and was established in 1937 educating both Christian and Muslim children together.
Reading: John 11: 17-35
