The idea of establishing Mount of Olives Association was conceived years ago. Twenty-five years ago we wanted to bring our families and children together. We had lots of success for some years but it waned because of challenges that we unfortunately still face today.
After years of the association being dormant, it was still talked about frequently, wishing that it would have continued and what it would be today, had we continued.
Today the challenges are greater because of a new, younger generation that has less ties to our heritage. What we hope to accomplish through this association is to meld the best of both; the old and its core values with the best of the new world to keep our ideals and faith alive.
