Books in a reading room in Arabic, English, Italian. I was very surprised to see the Italian books. The Pastor of St Joseph’s, Father Firas Aridah, told me their goal is that each child will have instruction in Arabic (of course), English, and their choice of French or Italian. It should be noted that Italian is often seen in the Holy Land due to charge of the Franciscians in securing Holy Sites for the Vatican.
