Within two months of its launch, the foundation will publish two books: “Beautiful Palestine in the Legacy of Charles Wilson” and “Between Haifa and Jerusalem: The Journey of Caesar Gillum II to Palestine,” highlighting  works that capture the holy city’s rich history.

During the inauguration on Thursday, Muhammad Gosheh, founder of the institution, said that with modern research methodology and design, the foundation is looking to publish works in both Arabic and English to reach a global audience.

He added: “We look forward to the books being distinctive and exceptional, as we aim to make Jerusalem an icon of heritage and a beacon of knowledge and radiance. The foundation will follow modern technology and writing methods in our steps to enlighten the world on Jerusalem’s status as an eternal city of heritage and legacy.” 

Arab Though Forum President Mohammad Abu Hammour said the foundation’s goal to “foster Jerusalem’s image as a sanctuary for history and tradition,”  comes at a time when it most crucial for the world to learn about the holy city.

The foundation is an academic institution that publishes books and qualitative studies, aided by photographs, maps, and historical documents. Its focus is on furthering historical research and preserving the works of leading intellectuals and academics.
