Jerusalem Patriarchate expressed support for Antiochian Orthodox Church
JERUSALEM. On July 30 the Greek church news agency, "Romfeya", reported on the 26 July meeting of the Holy Synod of the Orthodox Church of Jerusalem.
Jerusalem's Patriarch Theophilos III and members of the Synod expressed their solidarity with Antioch's Patriarch Ignatius IV.
The Synod allocated 10 thousand dollars for the needs of Syrian refugees in Jordan. Because of limited material resources available to the Patriarchate of Jerusalem, Theophilos III appealed to the Archbishop of Cyprus Chrysostomos II to organize a collection of humanitarian aid for the inhabitants of Syria.
