Daoud Nassar

Daoud Nassar, a Palestinian Christian farmer, is Director of the Tent of Nations Project:  an educational and environmentally conscious farm that seeks to build bridges between people, and between people and the land.  The farm has been in his family since 1916.  It is located 6 kilometers from Bethlehem in the occupied West Bank. The one-hundred acre farm is surrounded on three sides by Israeli Settlements, and below by the Palestinian village of Nahalin.  The family has been in the Israeli courts since 1991 seeking to maintain their claim to their land

Daoud shares the story of his family’s commitment to living a life of non-violent resistance: refusing to be enemies in the face of continuous obstacles that they, and most Palestinians, face in their search for a normal life.

He has a Bachelors Degree in Biblical Studies from the Bethlehem Bible College, a Bachelors degree in Business from the Bethlehem University, and a degree in Tourism Management from Bielefeld University in Germany. Daoud has three children with his wife Jihan Nassar, and is fluent in Arabic, Hebrew, German and English.
