Our hand Crosses are all made from Holy Land olive wood in Bethlehem, near the birthplace of the Lord Jesus. Our olive wood hand crosses are shaped differently than others that you find, having more of the shape of an actual cross. While these lovely hand Crosses, or pocket Crosses, are made in Bethlehem, the Holy Land olive wood used to make each hand Cross comes from the Galilee region, where the Lord Jesus based His ministry. These hand Crosses are also priced in bulk quantities. Each hand Cross comes with a "Made in the Holy Land" certificate of authenticity. With individual orders of these hand Crosses, you will receive our Holy Land Treasures gift card.
Our olive wood hand crosses serve as wonderful reminders of what our Lord suffered at Calvary for you and me. These lovely wooden hand crosses are also called palm crosses and are designed to uniquely fit in your hand. Also called prayer crosses, many use them to hold in their hand during prayer. Some refer to them as pocket crosses, as the cross (4" tall") will easily fit inside ones pocket or purse.
Our olive wood hand crosses are made in the Bethlehem carving shop of world renowned Christian artisan Jeries Facouseh. Jeries and his team carve these hand crosses in his carving factory on Manger Street in Bethlehem, not far from the site where the Lord Jesus was born. Jeries uses Holy Land olive wood from the Galilee region to make these hand crosses. Galilee is the region where the Lord Jesus spent the majority of His earthly life. While the location these hand crosses are made and the wood they are made from does not give them any mystical power, it does stir the soul. A note from Ricky Anderson, owner of Holy Land Treasures USA: Jeries Facouseh is one of the dearest friends that I have on this earth. He is not just a fine craftsman, as you can see with the images of the beautiful hand crosses, statues and other olive wood carvings that he makes for us. Jeries is a wonderful, godly Christian man, a man I gladly call my brother.
Our hand crosses are also offered for bulk purchase. Each olive wood hand cross listing has graduated bulk prices. When purchasing these wooden palm crosses in bulk you save a great deal.
We here at Holy Land Treasures feel that we have done more than has ever been done to authenticate that our hand crosses and other lovely Christian gifts are actually made in the Holy Land. With each hand cross that we sell, you will receive a made in the Holy Land certificate of authenticity.
The unique shape of our olive wood hand crosses sets them apart from all others. Our hand crosses are shaped like an actual cross, yet still designed to fit inside ones hand.
