More from Abu Ghosh

One of the highlights of a visit to Abu Ghosh is the Crusader Church.  As a reminder of how Israel is holy to various faiths, here is a video taken of singing from a service in the almost completely intact, 12th-century Crusader church. Besides the beautiful chants and acoustics , the church includes some newly discovered frescoes. 

Biannual music festivals are held in Abu Ghosh, with music such as this performance video of Vivaldi.

The Arab-Jewish coexistance is exemplified by the combined Abu Ghosh Mevaseret Zion football team, described here.

Abu Ghosh is certainly a positive example of Arab-Jewish interaction in Israel.  When bad news tends to fill the airwaves, the wonderfully positive aspects of Israel help to keep things in perspective.
