Dar Issaf Nashashibi for Culture and Arts

The renovation and refurbishing of Dar Issaf Nashashibi, which is part of Dar El-Tifl Institute, started in 1997, after the transferal of Issaf’s house (“dar”) to the Islamic Research Center by Hind Husseini with the cooperation of Dr. Isshaq Husseini in 1982.

Dr. Ishaq Husseini dedicated his efforts to establish a library that consisted of 8,000 books about the Islamic Arab Heritage, to be available to all students, teachers, and researchers in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.  Yet after the closure of Jerusalem to all residents of the West Bank and Gaza Strip, a bare minority come to the library.  The lack of library users, due to closure, shrank all the library’s activities, to a point two years ago, at which the activities were completely paralyzed.

This year, Dar El-Tifl initiated new steps to reorganize and renovate this center to open its doors under a new name to serve various sections of Palestinian society.  The new name of this center is Dar Issaf Nashashibi for Culture and Arts.  The new task is to encourage different activities to secondary and preparatory students in Jerusalem.


  1. Renovation of the library rooms.

  2. Reorganizing and renewing the library, and adding a computer system to its work.

  3. Assigning a new librarian.

  4. Restore the manuscript and book section, which were paralyzed for long periods.

  5. Maps and manuscripts on a microfilm.

  6. A new project was agreed by the administrative committee to support educational activities for ages 13-17.

  7. An architectural plan was done to conceive all the activities by changing the rooms in the first floor to a large hall for arts and visual aids, in addition to workshops and a cafeteria.  This project will start as soon as we calculate enough money, which is around $100,000.

  8. Applying a new administrative system and training employees.
