2017 was a record year for the Nazareth Village, as we welcomed almost 95,000 visitors! We now believe that the next step is to “enlarge the place of our tent”, as it says in Isaiah 54:2, so that we can continue to grow and expand our programs and services, both locally and internationally.
Please prayerfully consider partnering with us in building this new “Discovery Center”. Leave a legacy or honor a loved one, and join with Nazareth Village in making this dream a reality. Your gift of $120 USD will be memorialized in our new building in the list of our benefactors.
Nazareth Village is a not-for-profit organization that covers most operations through entrance fees and gift shop sales. However, we welcome your contributions to cover programs, biblical and archaeological study courses, and especially ongoing preservation and development of the Nazareth Village site.
You can help ensure that the light from Nazareth Village continues to shine through your donation through the Tree of Light Giving program. Honor a loved one, commemorate an event or simply show your support for the Village. Gifts of $1000 USD or more are recognized with a hand painted wood plaque with the words of your choice lit by an oil lamp and placed on the “Tree of Light”.
You can help us build the village one stone at a time. As the Builders Walk continues to grow with visitors names, ministries, churches and notes of appreciation, so our Village grows as well.
The Builders’ Walk commemorates those who have chosen to support Nazareth Village in bringing to the world the life and teaching of Jesus.
Become a part of the story today.
You, too, can contribute by participating in the Builders’ Walk. Honor a loved one, commemorate an event, or simply show your support for Nazareth Village. A gift of $350 USD or more is recognized with a stone engraved with the words of your choice. Once the stone is installed in our Builders’ Walk, you will receive a certificate confirming that your personalized engraving is a permanent part of the Builders’ Walk.
Nazareth Village is located on a site that was remarkably untouched since Jesus’ time. Through the generosity of many, the original farm had been restored with olive trees, original terraces, wine press, irrigation system, and quarry. Exact replicas of first century houses, synagogue, mikvah, and olive presses have been carefully built.
As we move forward to create a more extensive experience for our guests, plans are underway for a new visitor and study center, a first-century potter’s house, a physician’s station, and other projects.
Your gift can help and support Nazareth Village as it maintains the great experience it provides. Furthermore, it makes it possible to make future plans possible.
