HOW TO GET TO THE RAMALLH FRIENDS MEETINGHOUSE
AND THE FRIENDS INTERNATIONAL CENTER IN RAMALLAH
If you are traveling from Jerusalem to Ramallah, you should give yourself an hour to get to the Meetinghouse from the time you get on the bus in Jerusalem to the time you arrive at the Meetinghouse.
Directions to the Meetinghouse from Jerusalem: There are two Palestinian bus stations in Jerusalem. To come to Ramallah, take Bus #18 from the Palestinian bus station across the street from the Jerusalem Hotel. The bus station is also across the street from the Garden Tomb. The Jerusalem Hotel and the Garden Tomb are two landmarks that anyone can point you to. Once you get on the bus you can stay on it until you get to Ramallah. In Ramallah, the bus will pull into the bus station. Ask the bus driver to let you off at the last stop in Ramallah.
Directions to the Meetinghouse when you are in Ramallah: After you arrive in Ramallah, ask someone how to get to the Manara. Walk to the Manara. The Manara is the round-about at the center of Ramallah with four lions in the middle. You will see six roads leading away from the Manara. At the Manara you will see a restaurant on the second floor of a building called "Stars and Bucks". Take the road to the right of this restaurant. This is called Main Street. Walk about the equivalent of one city block. (You will see a few small streets to the right of you but do not turn right.) You will get to a high stone wall with a mural on it. This is the wall around the Ramallah Friends Meetinghouse. The gate to the Meetinghouse is always locked, so if you plan to visit any time other than coming for Meeting for Worship on Sunday mornings, please call before you come to make sure someone can unlock the gate.

If you need to ask for directions to the Meetinghouse when you are in Ramallah: Ask how to get to Rukab Ice Cream and the Natshe Building. The Meetinghouse is kitty-corner across the street from Rukab and next to the Natshe Building.
