Palestine Story 17: Hosh El Eliyyeh
[design Polypod, text Manar Harb]
A cultural hub and restaurant, Hosh el‐Eliyyeh is run and managed by the couple, Mazen and Julia Saadeh. The couple organizes cultural activities and artistic workshops, such as hand crafts and drawings that may be simple in form but have a large impact on the children's mentality and the sense of community in Birzeit. They bring together the children and people of Birzeit, a place that was once a wreck, but is now prospering, especially after its restoration in 2002 by Riwaq in cooperation with the Birzeit Municipality.
