who are WE


Bethlehem Municipality believes in the Palestinian and Bethlehemite cultural identity, and wishes to foster a clear vision to reconnect Bethlehemites all over the world with their home fellows, encouraging them to have a role in the development of their homeland. Thus, Bethlehem Municipality, along with the Municipalities of Beit Jala and Beit Sahour created an initiative; the Bethlehem District Diaspora Convention (BDDC), to invite all Bethlehemites living in the diaspora to come visit their homeland and reconnect with their roots.

What is the theme of BDDC III?


In the framework of Bethlehem Capital of Arab Culture 2020 and within Bethlehem municipality’s vision to strengthen ties with its expatriates around the world. Bethlehem Municipality, in cooperation with the municipalities of Beit Jala and Beit Sahour, is organizing the third Bethlehem District Diaspora convention under the title “the influence of Bethlehemite culture in other nations around the world”. 

Under the slogan “our culture .. Our identity”, the message of the Convention reflects the connection between the Bethlehemite culture and our identity as the sons of Bethlehem, Beit Jala and Beit Sahour.
