Beit Khairat Souf

About the Site

Bait Khairat Souf is located on a small street in the heart of Souf, you are taken back to the past with cobblestone pathways, old large trees that offer shade in the inner courtyard and rooms built entirely with old stone. This old home is known amongst the community as host to the first church in the area where they would come to pray. 

Known for their food, you can take part in prepping local dishes such as Maglouba, Imsakhan (using locally grown sumac berries), Mansaf and Kabsah.  

Feeling energetic before your meal?  Take an easy hike in the mountains that provide a backdrop to Souf.  The hike can be as short or long as you like and includes a rest break with aromatic tea boiled on a campfire.  You will see some of the last Pine-Oak Tree Forest and maybe some small wildlife, all indigenous to the area.

If your visit to Beit Khairat Souf coincides to olive picking season, you will have the chance to pick almost ripe olives and take the harvest to the olive press.  Another seasonal activity is Citrus Fruit Harvesting and Jam Making.  Pick your favorite citrus fruits and learn how to make the most delicious jam. 

Beit Khairat Souf is women run and employes over 25 women from the area.  They have adopted an environmentally conscience policy, whereby no food is wasted. All leftover food meals are shared with the less fortunate and even food scraps are given to the neighborhood animals.  

Your visit to Jerash would not be complete without a mug of hot acorn coffee!  This no caffeine drink is a unique creation of the ladies of Beit Khairat.
