Lighting of the Crib and Christmas Carolling at Rameh

Rameh – On December 20th, 2015, in anticipation for Christmas holidays, the Crib was lit, followed by a recital of Christmas carols at the Latin Parish Church.

Among the people who were present for the event Mgr. Giacinto Boulos Marcuzzo, Patriarchal Vicar for Israel, Mr Shawki Abu Lteif, Mayor, Latin, Greek Catholic and Orthodox priests, Muslim and Druze representatives, as well as families from Rameh.

The evening, which started with the traditional Christmas bazaar, went on with the lighting of the Grotto. The concert was animated by the choir “Donna Maris”, under the management of Mark Dubrov and accompanied by the pianist Elena Bershadski. The Association “Donna  Maris” which gave its name to the choir, born in Haifa in 2001 by Mrs. Sumaya Abboud, is a multidenominational group which gathers for the fun of music and singing.  They regularly animate official and religious ceremonies. Proceeds are designed to help needy families.
