‌The Syriac community stands out due to its presence in Jerusalem since the days of Jesus. The Monastery of St. Mark in the Old City serves as a community center for Aramaic speakers, and it houses a small, impressive church. Interestingly, St. Mark’s also harbors a longtime tradition that Jesus’ Last Supper was held in its basement. Learn about this small, ancient community and get an inside look at its values, customs and traditions.
