The Olive Press at Bethlehem’s Badd Jaqaman

Contributed by Arab Educational Institute on 27.02.2006:


The Arab Educational Institute’s women’s group contemplate the olive press at the Badd Jaqaman press, which played such an important role in the lives of their ancestors. Many of the women are from the same extended family or clan as the that for whom the press is named, though most spell their name “Giacaman.” This is an important reminder to try different variations when searching for relatives.
