Olive Tree is a blessed tree in the holy book. From its trunks and branches
(after storing it in a suitable environment for many years) artists build their
masterpieces. These items make perfect gifts. Olive Wood souvenirs do not
require much care. Olive oil is naturally protecting them from corrosion and
changes of color.
This Year add a special touch to your Holiday Season with Handmade Olive Wood
carvings from the Holy Land. This Beautiful wood comes from olive trees, the
type that grew in Gethsemane and around Jerusalem where Jesus walked. Every Two
years the olive trees are pruned so that they bear fruit. These beautiful pieces
are made from these pruning by Christian craftsmen living in Bethlehem.
 Then came the day of Unleavened Bread on which the Passover lamb had to be sacrificed.  Jesus sent Peter and John, saying, "Go and make preparations for us to eat the Passover."
 "Where do you want us to prepare for it?" they asked.
 He replied, "As you enter the city, a man carrying a jar of water will meet you. Follow him to the house that he enters,  and say to the owner of the house, 'The Teacher asks: Where is the guest room, where I may eat the Passover with my disciples?'  He will show you a large upper room, all furnished. Make preparations there."
 They left and found things just as Jesus had told them. So they prepared the Passover.
 When the hour came, Jesus and his apostles reclined at the table.  And he said to them, "I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer.  For I tell you, I will not eat it again until it finds fulfillment in the kingdom of God."
 After taking the cup, he gave thanks and said, "Take this and divide it among you.  For I tell you I will not drink again of the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes."
 And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, "This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me."
 In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.
