Brotherhood of Jesus

At the historical site of Latrun which saw much bloodshed throughout the centuries, a small branch of the Brotherhood of Jesus from Gnadenthal, Germany provide a small guesthouse emphasizing reflection, prayer, study and reconciliation.
[Nearby is the Trappist Monastery of Latrun (see photo below) and the Community of the Beatitudes which also provide opportunity for prayer and reflection.]
