I was wondering if anyone could help me obtain the mailing address for the Monastery at Jacob's Well?  The official title of the monastery is The Greek Orthodox St. Photini Church at Bir Ya'qub, Israel.  I have tried searching via Google, but nothing comes up. Huh

If you go to this link and scroll toward the bottom, it has the phone number of the administration of the Well. Maybe they will be able to tell you something. Smiley

Hope it helps.

It's in the West Bank of Palestine, not Israel, as Israel has not annexed it.

Here it is on a map. It's near Nablus.
https://www.google.com/maps/place/Be%27er+Ya%27akov/@32.209427,35.28535,13z/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0x0:0xbddc891dce8aceda?sa=X&ei=9m1yVMn7C8HgONOMgPgG&ved=0CJ0FEPwSMGk

Yes, I realize that the Israel/Palestine designation can be confusing. You will have to put down Israel as the address if you are mailing from the US, since the US recognizes only Israel as a country.

You could probably just write a letter to: Jacob's Well Monastery, Bir Yaqub, Nablus, West Bank, Israel, with no other information, because it's such a major landmark, the town's postmen should know it.

But first try Biro's advice and call. I couldn't find an address either.

It's in Nablus, so contact this Nablus Guide:
http://www.nablusguide.com/index.php?option=com_contact&view=contact&id=1&Itemid=56&lang=en


Here is the Catholic parish by the same name. They should know the Orthodox one:

Thank you very much for your help!

Unfortunately I do not have international telephone calling privileges so I am going to try and send the letter to the address Rakovsky provided.

Thank you again and pray that the letter arrives at its destination! Grin

Phil,
I would highly recommend emailing the people I listed in Nablus first to get the exact address.

Secondly, you can get Skype and use it to call internationally very cheaply. You can use skype to call at about 3-10 cents a minute, which is about what a domestic call used to cost.

Third, If you just mail it as we discussed, my guess is that it will arrive, but I don't know for sure 100%.

Fourth, to be safe, you can send two extra letters to the Latin Catholic Jacob's Well parish address listed and ask them to pass one on to the Orthodox monastery in their town.
