Celebration for the 50th
  The 50th anniversary celebration of Rawdat El-Zuhur was eventually observed amidst turbulence and uncertainty.  Much of the original program had to be cancelled, but we were able to have the musical and the art and photo exhibits.  We also have put together a commemorative Book entitled A Radiant Hope.  You may view it by clicking the “cover” link.

We know this will entail not only new premises but a much larger responsibility administratively and financially.  But in the process of serving the community, and with the shortage of Palestinian schools in Jerusalem to absorb all the additional numbers of students, we feel it is worthwhile investing in a few extra years.    What we feel is really basic, is that the children will be older and more mature after the ninth or tenth grade. By then, those graduates will be able to hold on to all the principles and moral values which they have acquired at Rawdat El-Zuhur along the years. 

          We strongly feel that Rawdat El-Zuhur is worthy of being adopted as a haven for children where it has the potential to experiment on  new methods in education, leadership training and civic education. It is only through a proper educational process that we can bring about changes in the mentality, concepts and performance of our people, and prepare them for nationhood. Our success along the years has been due to the vision and courage to attempt new and innovative programs. 

Thank you for visiting. May God bless your days and nights,
while also blessing this  ministry to children
