There are beautiful pieces in this store, and a better selection than I've seen anywhere else. However, like many places in the middle east be sure to talk with the staff and get a deal. I found everyone there, especially the store owner, to be...More

After the Oslo agreement when Israel gave up control of Bethlehem, the Christian population has fallen from 85% to about 10% today. So we support the Christian community when we can. Many tour groups stop at Johnnys before visiting the church of nativity near manger...More
