Carving out Opportunities to Enrich Lives

Glad Tidings Holy Land Designs, Inc. is an outreach to the physically challenged and underprivileged in the Holy Land. Located in the hills of the Roman city of Philadelphia, now modern day Amman, Jordan, our Glad Tidings Workshop currently trains and employs around 20 full-time workers.

For centuries, Holy Land artisans have expressed their creative talents through such natural media as stone, wood, and sand. Today Middle Eastern families continue to carve, weave, press, and dye a variety of articles reflecting the culturally rich, yet often harsh world of their surroundings.

A foundational principle of Glad Tidings is to work for the good of the community, making certain that the artisans who produce its unique handicrafts make a “living wage.” This means that an average salary is sufficient to provide housing, food and education for a family of four.
