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.

Comfort Crosses

I purchased the small comfort crosses to give to my nephews who served as pall bearers at my mother’s (their grandmother) funeral. They were a big hit. Now my siblings want one.

Thank you for special people at a Funeral

I recently held a funeral for my husband and there were so many friends and family members that did extra special things for me, and I wanted to say thank you in a special way. These little crosses, come packed with a scripture, and there was room on the back for me to write a little message on the back. Packaged in a clear chiffon bag they were the perfect touch of love on this very sad day. I even kept one for myself to hold onto during the day.
