Bright Stars of Bethlehem supports spaces to learn, grow, and thrive.


In Palestine especially, safe gathering spaces are at a premium. One of the many areas of work for Bright Stars of Bethlehem is supporting the program sites that facilitate discovery, connection, and cultural enrichment in Palestine.

State-of-the-Art Library

Dar al-Kalima’s 25,000+ sq.ft. library and multimedia learning center is the first of its kind in Palestine. This center enables students to advance their learning while also attracting visitors and scholars from around the world. The library is also the zero energy building in the region, powered by solar panels!

Dar al-Kalima University construction began in 2008 and the first phase of the construction opened two years later provided classrooms and an education center to students in the West Bank. This construction provided almost 37,000 jobs in the region, making it the largest construction project in Bethlehem since the time of Herod the Great.

While the construction phase has been completed, there are still more opportunities to enhance learning and connectivity in the space. You can help!

Please consider a gift today to help support these vital spaces for ministry.
