The Maronites of Jish, a village in Northern Israel, are steeped in a rich history and strong traditions dating back to the early centuries of Christianity. They have preserved the Aramaic language, which is believed to have been spoken by Jesus, and their religious customs are distinct from other Christian communities. Their community and connection to the land have been maintained despite numerous historical adversities and changes. In recent years, cherry cultivation has been adopted by the villagers, not only because of favourable environmental conditions but also as a profitable venture. The decision to grow cherries, made just five years ago, has added another layer to their diverse historical tapestry, further demonstrating the adaptability and resilience of the Maronite community in Jish.
