From here they began their journey to Egypt. The name BETHLEHEM explained in different ways. Church Slavic; Hebrew BeitLehem which means "House of Bread", or translated from the modern Arabic "House of Meat". From ancient times to the name "Bethlehem" added "Jewish" or "Ephrata", to distinguish it from another Bethlehem in Galilee. In the Bible the city is called "Bethlehem – Efrat".

Above the cave she built the temple. Every year this place is visited by millions of pilgrims. The treasured purpose — to touch the silver Shrine, the birthplace of the Savior.
