Our olive wood comfort crosses, sometimes referred to as holding crosses or prayer crosses, are individually hand-carved and smoothly sanded from a single piece of olive wood pruned from the olive trees that flourish around the holy city of Bethlehem. The grain pattern of each olive wood comfort cross is distinctive, created by our Heavenly Father just as He has created each of us.

About the Artist: Mosleh Workshop is located in Beit Sahour, a Palestinian village on the east side of Bethlehem. Olive trees have been growing on this land for thousands of years. In an area with few opportunities, the sale of olive wood creations provides desperately needed income for talented artisans. Purchasing olive wood comfort crosses made by local Christian craftsmen provides yourself with a precious reminder of our savior and supports the presence of Christians in the land of Christ.
Please know that the olive wood used to create your comfort cross has been harvested from the trimming of the olive wood tree branches. This annual pruning process is designed to improve the overall health and productivity of living trees.
Imported from the Holy Land and shipped same day/next day from Williamsburg, Virginia.
