Our olive wood hand crosses are carved in Bethlehem from Holy Land olive wood. We make our olive wood hand crosses with a unique shape that better resembles the shape of an actual cross.

Our olive wood hand crosses are made in the Manger Street carving factory of the Holy Land's premier Christian olive wood artisan, our dear friend Jeries Facouseh. The Facouseh olive wood carving factory is about a 10 minute walk from the site where the Lord Jesus was born.
Our olive wood hand crosses go by many different names. Many people refer to them as comfort crosses or holding crosses. Our olive wood hand crosses are also sometimes referred to a palm crosses or prayer crosses, with the cross being designed to hold in the palm of ones hand and held during prayer.
We carve our olive wood hand crosses from prunings of Holy Land olive trees from the Galilee region of Israel. This is the region where the Lord Jesus based His public ministry and spent much of His earthly life. By using olive tree prunings to carve our olive wood hand crosses we help to preserve the life and health of Holy Land olive trees.
Though our olive wood hand crosses (or, prayer crosses) have no mystical power the story behind them does stir the soul. Our olive wood hand crosses (holding crosses) are made near the site where the Lord Jesus was born and the Holy Land olive wood used to carve them comes from the Galilee. This means these olive wood hand crosses (also called comfort crosses) are carved near the place of His birth from Holy Land olive wood that grew out of the same ground that He once trod.
