I had heard for years about the Birzeit Heritage Week festival, but didn’t get a real introduction to it until last year. Most interesting for me was the opening ceremony with the Palestinian wedding celebration. Every year, a couple who are planning to get married, or who just got married, celebrate their wedding with a traditional celebration in the streets of the old city of Birzeit.
I’m looking forward to another season of Birzeit Heritage Week in a couple of months. I will be there with my camera and kids. Hope to see you there!
