Today we drove to the church and tomb of Lazarus and then paid a visit to Jeel al-Amal Boys Home which is a boarding school for boys many of whom are orphans. I is also a co-educational school for children up to secondary school age. Founded by Christians and funded by many Christian Charities and churches it now has only Muslim children and Teachers. (As we discovered in Bethlehem many Christian Palestinians have left the country). We had lunch at the Jerusalem Hotel and then visited The Dormition Abbey and the Tomb of King David. Before dinner we celebrated Mass on the hotel rood top overlooking the old city of Jerusalem.
