At the invitation of the Ramah Greek Orthodox Council and Hanna Mweis Cultural Center, a cultural evening was held in the Orthodox Center’s Hall, Wednesday, the 1st of April 2015, at 7:00 p.m., to launch Al-Liqa’s new publication concerning Patriarch Sophronius.

    

The cultural evening included commentaries on the book by H.E. Bishop Butros al-Mu’allem of the Melkite Catholic Church in Galilee, H.E. Bishop Atallah Hanna of the Melkite Orthodox Church of Jerusalem, and Attorney ‘Ali Rafa’ of Deir Al-Asad, Galilee. The three commentators focused on the life of Sophronius as well as circumstances surrounding Omar’s Covenant.

Dr. Khoury then presented his book and the importance of Caliph Omar’s Covenant. The evening was moderated by Mr. ‘Abboud ‘Azar.

This gathering at Ramah was attended by leading sectors of society, and the cultural evening was concluded with a question and an answer session.
