The Rooster of Jifna. A local story tells of a Jewish couple who were living in Jifna at the time of Christ’s ressurection. The man witnessed the event, and istantly converted. He then returned home and told his wife of the event. His wife is said to have replied “I will believe it if this rooster I’ve just killed comes back to life.” The rooster did come back to life, and became a symbol for the Christian community in Jifna which persists to this day
