Welcome to Holy Land Wood and Stone, where craftsmanship meets family values. We are Jen and Andy Gesek, a husband and wife team with a passion for creating exquisite products from Bethlehem Olive Wood and Jerusalem Stone. Our journey as a small family-owned business began in 2019, just months before the world was forever changed by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Having spent three decades in the corporate world, we longed for something more meaningful—a venture where we could work together, create something extraordinary, and foster a legacy for our family. Thus, Holy Land Wood and Stone was born, and we embarked on a journey to turn our dream into a reality.
Resilience Amidst Challenges
Starting a business during a global pandemic was a test of our determination and resilience. We faced unprecedented challenges, but our commitment to our craft and dedication to our customers kept us going. We adapted, evolved, and made it through the storm, emerging stronger than ever.
Expanding Our Horizons
In 2022, we took a bold step forward by expanding our authentic Bethlehem Olive Wood product line to include stunning Jerusalem Stone products. This decision was driven by our unwavering commitment to offering the finest quality materials and products inspired by materials from the Holy Land.
The Heart of Our Craft
While we now manufacture our Stone products in Pennsylvania, we remain deeply connected to our company roots, sourcing our stone from Jerusalem. This connection to the Holy Land infuses each of our creations with a sense of spiritual significance that transcends borders.
A Vision for the Future
As we look to the future, our vision is clear. We aim to continually expand our product offerings and diversify our raw materials, exploring other high-quality stone materials to bring to our customers. Our dedication to quality and authenticity remains unwavering.
Family is at the core of everything we do. We are proud parents to four wonderful children, whose ages span from 13 to 26, and we are delighted to have two precious grandchildren in our lives. This business is not just about creating beautiful products; it's about building a legacy that we can share with generations to come.
Thank you for joining us on this remarkable journey. We invite you to explore our collection of handcrafted treasures, each a testament to our passion, resilience, and commitment to family. Your support allows us to continue doing what we love, and we are truly grateful for it.
With love and craftsmanship,
Jen and Andy Gesek
