On Thursday, March 2, 2017, the first batch of new song books arrived at the Saint James Vicariate.


“I will praise the Lord as long as I live” is the title of the kehillah song book which has just been published in a new and improved edition. The volume was produced thanks to the hard work of many – the pioneers of the music that characterizes the kehillah and those who invested much effort in the present volume. Thanks are due to Father Rafic, responsible for the Jerusalem kehillah, who oversaw the project of publication together with Benedetto, seminarian for the Vicariate. Thanks are also due to the careful and precise execution of the project by Mr. Mounir Hodaly, director of the Latin Patriarchate Printing Press in Beit Jala.

We are enormously grateful to the Pope John Paul II Foundation in Italy which generously funded the project.
