Who we are?

Today, Notre Dame de Sion is present on all five continents. It includes Congregations of Sisters (apostolic and contemplative) as well as Brothers. The men and women religious and associates of Notre Dame de Sion, “witness by their life to God’s faithful love for the Jewish people and God’s fidelity to the promises he revealed to the patriarchs and prophets of Israel for all humanity.” The study and meditation of the Scriptures illuminated by the Jewish and Christian traditions are an essential element of our life. In our community here in Ein Kerem, Apostolic and Contemplative Sisters, Brothers, as well as Associates of the Congregation serve in a ministry of hospitality, prayer and study of the Word of God, sharing the many tasks associated with this vocation. The monastery is also the home to the Sisters’ International Novitiate.
