Dormition Abbey in Jerusalem

Dormition Abbey on Mount Zion is the home monastery of our community. All monks, whatever their place of residence or work, make their profession to Dormition. Here the Abbot lives as the superior of the entire community in Jerusalem, Tabgha and Hildesheim. Here is also the novitiate, where the first monastic training and formation takes place. Here come together also the most important operations of our business office.
