Masar Ibrahim al-Kahlil Organizes “Cultural Heritage in Hebron” Workshop

In coordination with the Palestinian Ministry of Tourism, the Masar Ibrahim Al-Khalil organized a two-day workshop entitled “Cultural Heritage in Hebron”. Beginning on December 21st, the workshop explored ways to develop and increase information and experiences about the cultural heritage of Hebron.

Many people are only familiar with the Ibrahimi Mosque, so the workshop aimed at increasing information and expanding the larger Palestinian narration for the local people and the guides. The workshop was attended by Dr. Ahmed Al Rajoub of the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities, representatives from the Hebron Rehabilitation Committee (HRC), the ministry of Awqaf, tour guides and Masar Ibrahim staff.
