Subject: Happy new year

Je suis toujours ravi de constater, que ta volonté et ton acharnement, à maintenir ce site de jour comme de nuit pour servir Kobayat , ne faiblisse pas même lorsque tu voyage hors du Liban.

 

9 ans passés à faire ce devoir envers ta communauté, c'est magnifique et gigantesque. Que l'esprit continue à te donner la santé et le "Rahet el bale" pour finir cette mission ou plutôt ce sacerdoce.

 

Bass Wa asafah, je ne pourrait pas être avec vous ce 28 Décembre pour t'exprimer toute mon amitié et t'applaudir publiquement pour le travail gigantesque et fêter ton site au deir parce que je suis en France pour cette période de fête. Mais je serais par la pensée et par l'esprit avec toute l'équipe et les amis.

 

Encore Bonne fête et Bonne Année à toi et à ta famille de ma part et de celle de ma famille.

 

A bientôt

Alphonse

Mr Elie Abboud

Notre thème pour cette année est : « Tracer des sentiers d’amitié » Et www.kobayat.org a été la page qui a tracé par excellence des sentiers d’amitié entre tous les kobayatiens et tous les amis de Kobayat.
Vraiment après 9 ans de travail superbe, Kobayat est fier de son ingénieur qui a fait tout son possible pour améliorer ce web. Et maintenant nous pouvons lever haut notre tête pour dire à haute voix que notre cher village possède un web extraordinaire.


Nous connaissons que pour arriver, vous avez donné beaucoup de votre temps de votre argent de votre fatigue, c’est pour cela nous vous confions vous et votre famille à la très sainte vierge pour qu’elle vous garde et vous protège et vous récompense sur votre travail fructueux.

 

De tout cœur et au nom des deux groupes, nous vous félicitons pour votre 9eme anniversaire et nous vous souhaitons toute joie paix et réussite.

Bonjour Elie,


je ne sais si je vous ai rencontré il y a maintenant 15 ans lors de mon année passée à Kobayat chez Bernadette Iskandar. Je suis ravie de parcourir ce site qui me permet de revenir sur cette année extraordinaire passée à Kobayat. Le dispensaire, les guides de ND du mont Carmel et tous ces visages si accueillants.

 

Maintenant je suis mariée et mère de 4 enfants et souvent je parle de cette année libanaise qui m'a tant apportée. Mon désir aujourd'hui alors que j'ai repris dans le scoutisme comme cheftaine de groupe serait de jumeler le 4 groupe sainte Jeanne d'Arc avec celui de Kobayat. Merci pour votre réponse.

 

Avec tout mon meilleur souvenir j'embrasse tous ceux de Kobayat qui me sont si chers. Que Jésus vous protège.

Salut.
J’espère que vous allez bien.
Je consultais la page concernant les églises de Qoubayat et j’ai remarqué que ça nécessite plus d’exactitude en ce qui concerne (سيدة شحلو) et (دير عنان) .
Tout d’abord je crois (à ma modeste connaissance) qu’il faut distinguer entre un sanctuaire (je ne sais pas si la nomination est exacte) et une paroisse.
En ce qui concerne (سيدة شحلو) c’est un sanctuaire qui se trouve dans les territoires de la paroisse Mort moura, et par conséquent il est servi actuellement par Rév. Salim Zraiby, Mais (دير عنان – الشنبوق) c’est une véritable paroisse fondée par l’archevêque de Tripoli Antoun Abed . Les fils de cette paroisse sont les propriétaires des terres de l’alentour, et ceux qui sont enregistrés là haut. La majorité de ces paroissiens viennent aussi de Martmoura, et cette paroisse est servie par Rév. Salim Zraiby, qui y célèbre chaque dimanche dès le début du mois de Mai jusqu’à la fin de l’été.
 

Merci
Veuillez agréer mes salutations distinguées.

Dear friends, this is Juan Pablo Alvarez from Mexico.
 

I am looking for some information about a Maronite Archbishop but I don’t really have the right name and data of that person, because the Lebanese names and surnames in Mexico are written in a different way.
 

I know that his name was Filip (Philip) Shbeiaa, he was born in Becharre, and as long as I know he was Archbishop of Lebanon in the first half of the 20th century.
 

Could you help me with more data about this illustrious Lebanese man?

Bonjour Monsieur


J'ai eu vos coordonnees par internet. Je ne sais pas si vous pouvez m'aider, mais je cherche des infos sur les ecoles des missionnaires iatliens au Liban entre 1910 et 1925. Je sais que ma grand-mère était dans une de ces écoles, et je ne trouve aucun livre publié sur cette periode. Je cherche a savoir si les iatliens avaient beaucoup d'ecoles au Liban ou juste quelques unes. Sur internet, on entend surtout parler de Kobayat, mais quqnd j'ai cherché Kobayat sur la carte geographique, ça m'a paru tres loin de Beyrouth, donc ce ne peut pas¨^etre l'ecole ou a été ma grand mere. Croyez-vous que c'est possible de trouver des archives qui datent de cette epoque? je cherche a joindre une italienne (plutot sa famille puisqu'elle doit etre decedee mainteannt) qui a grandi dans cette ecole avec ma grand mere.


Je vous remercie d'avance si vous pouvez m'aider en me donnant queqlues pistes.

From: Maximo Antonio Kuri -Canada

Date: Sat 28-Jun-08 3:18 AM

Subject: Inquiry from Canada

Dear Sir,

 

I am looking for information about my great grandfather Isaac Khoury, who was a Maronite priest in the town of Sebhel (sometimes spelled Sib'il or Sebaal - located between Zgharta and Ehden) in the late 1800's and early 1900's. I have previously written to the Patriarchate, but have received no reply.

 

I am very fond and proud of my Lebanese ancestry and our Maronite heritage, and would like to learn more about Bounna Isaac. I was born in Mexico and now live in Canada, but I am teaching my children to love and remember their roots.

 

I have attached a photo of father Isaac Khoury, who was born circa 1845 in Sebhel. When I see that portrait, it reminds me of the words by the French traveler Laurent D'Avrieux, who visited Sebhel in 1660: "All Maronite prelates live austerely and are poorly dressed and have no income except what the land yields to their manual work. Their garments are poor, but clean; virtues adorn them, not rich clothes embroidered with gold and silver. Their crosiers are of wood, but they are bishops of gold...".

 

I would appreciate very much any guidance you can give me in order to find out more about my great-grandfather. Maybe there are church archives in Lebanon with his date of birth and death, his wife's name, and maybe information on other relatives such as his parents.

 

I live far away from Sebhel now - in Vancouver. But my heart is in Lebanon, and will always be.

 

Kind regards,

 

Maximo Antonio Kuri (Khoury)

Hello, Elie. My name is Antonio and I belong to the family Abrahão (originally Ibrahim) here in Jacareí, Brasil. My great grand-parent Youssef Ibrahim Nader Raad came from Kobayat when he was a child. I never met him. He passed away before I was born. My family says here that he had strong differences with his brother when they were young and so, they ended up stop talking to each other. Due to these differences, my great grand-parent decided to remove the surnames Nader Raad from his name, in an act of revenge, remaining just Youssef Ibrahim (that's the explanation why our last name turned to Ibrahim "Abrahão").


I really would like to know more things about my ancestors... I know much little from them... I intend to go to Kobayat with my wife very soon to get closer to my ancestor's land and, perhaps, to my remaining relatives in Lebanon. Do you have any clue about my family? Places they lived? Remaining relatives? Where they worked??
I'll wait for your answer and i hope we can meet each other soon...


Thank you in advance and best regards!!!

I met a friend in Kobayat many years ago, about 11 or 12 years ago but lost contact as I did not come back to Lebanon for more than 10 years and he immigrated to Canada or Switzerland I think.

His name is Romeo, but I do not know his surname. Do you have anyone surfing your site from abroad with the name Romeo? He is now maybe about 34 yrs old.

Would be great if we could get in touch.

I am responsible of the group of Don Bosco group of Youth in The Salisian Convent in Bethlehem.
It would be a pleasure for us to have contact with any religious group in Lebanon in order to make a connection with all Christians within the Middle east and especially Lebanon. Maybe in the future we can organize mutual programs together.
thanks in advance.

Subject: Contact Kobayat Website

I'm a grand-grandson of a person who came to Brazil from Kobayat. I'd like to know some more from city and Hakme/Hakime family (probably Hakim is the correct way to write it, isn't it?). I know my grand-grandfather's name in Portuguese was Antonio Pedro Hakme. But it's the portuguese way to write it down. Probably the original (and correct) name was something like Anthony Peter Hakim (English form), Antoine Pierre Hakim or something like it. He was born around early 1900s. I also know he had a brother who did stay in Kobayat - his name was Jose, Joseph or Yousseff Hakim.

 

If you can contact me or send me some useful link I can use to reach people who could help me, would be grateful. My grandfather (older son of Antonio/Antoin) is around 86 years old and would like to hear from his family in Lebanon.

Regards,

Kleper Hakme

Dear Eng. Elie Abboud,

 

Christ's peace be with you!

I was looking for an article on your site but it doesn't come up on Search: Les Origines Érémitiques et Orientales de l'Ordre du Carme. I'm very interested in reading this so would appreciate it if you gave me the link to the article in the Kobayat site.

Many thanks, and keep up the fine work as webmaster,

Dear Elie,

 

My name is Youssef AOUN, Lebanese and Maronite, living temporarily in California. I visit regularly kobayat.org and I appreciate the information you are putting online. Some of it helps me a lot.

 

To make a long story short, I work under the patronage of the IMF (www.maronet.org) where we are trying to push forward the Maronite Web Projects.
We tried to refurbish www.maronite.org, the project is still in its very beginnings.
The newest project we are working on is Maronite History, www.maronitehistory.org. We aim to build a Maronite Wiki, with a conservative approach, to be the reference in the History of the Maronites.

 

I would appreciate if you take a look at our website and add a link to it on Kobayat.org.

 

We are constantly looking for people that could help us.

 

Thank you very much

Youssef AOUN

Dear Elie

 

Thanks for posting your email for all.

 

I've been looking for a Novena, or any prayer to Saint Nematullah Hardini, because I could find non anywhere, and I'd like to have it if it's anywhere on the net. And if you can help me find pictures of father Antoine Tarabay, and if you you have access to some, would you be so kind to send me at least one, because again it's not available anywhere.

 

Thanks even if you can't help
God Bless
Claude

Dear Mr. Elie

 

Many Many thanks for your wonderful Website which you established to raise up the voice of the Christian people not only in Lebanon but in the world Thank you again.
While surfing in your homepage ( wedding Photos ) I discovered many people whom i did not see and don't know anything about them since the beginning of the Lebanese civil war.

 

I would highly appreciate if you could communicate this Massage to Mr. SIMON EID personally with my warmest regards from Vienna.

 

I thank you in advance for your kind efforts with the great hope to receive any good news from your side.
Thank You again

Hi Elie

 

I feel so ashamed of not being in touch with you. I wanted so bad to thank you for the article that you posted on your web page, but I am racing the time and I am not winning that battle.
I want you to know that I hold you in the highest regard and I am so sorry that I am deprived of enjoying being in touch with you and your family.
I hug you, with my beautiful niece and your kids, and I hope my time will get easier that I can enjoy your gathering.
 

Lots of love.

Until then.

Cher Elie,

 

Je souhaite que vous vous souveniez encore de moi. Nous étions en contact pendant un certain temps. Je vous ai rendu visite une seule fois dans votre maison, mais c'était une circonstance difficile: Le décès accidentel de votre frère.
J'admire votre website, c'est une vraie mission chrétienne.


Je me permets de vous proposer un texte à insérer dans votre site. C'est la notice biographique de frère Benoît RACHID, un fils de votre région Akkar, un fils du village de Kfar Noun, devenu moine cistercien trappiste à Latroun en Terre Sainte; né en 1917, entré au monastère en 1931, mort Le 13 novembre 2007. Je l'ai connu pendant de nombreuses années. Le Liban nord maronite peut certainement être fier d'avoir produit un tel fruit de sainteté. Vous trouvez Le texte avec photos en pièce attachée.


Cher Elie, en attendant votre réaction, je vous assure de ma sympathie et de mes encouragements.

P. Louis Wehbé O.C.S.O.

Bonsoir Elie.


Comment ca va? C'est Hikmat Naffaa du Canada. Est-ce que tu me souviens encore?
Félicitation pour ce site web . Vraiment on est très content d'en avoir un comme toi dans notre village.
Ma madame est du Tlail-Akkar, elle voudrait savoir si tu connais un site web ou quelque chose a l'internet reliée a Tlail.
Aussi je veux savoir si tu as un photo pour mon ami Joseph Philippe et son numéro de téléphone.


Merci et mon souhait.
