His Eminence Mor Philoxenus Mattias Nayis, Archbishop of the Syriac Orthodox Church of Antioch in Germany, took the opportunity to listen to the heavenly sounds of Syriac-Aramaic Christmas music together with us.

Among the speakers was Davut Aslan, chairman of the council of the Syriac Orthodox Diocese in Germany, who, together with His Eminence, took a long journey from Paderborn to accept the invitation. Furthermore, Daniyel Demir, chairman of Bundesverband der Aramäer in Deutschland (Federation of Arameans in Germany), gave his Christmas speech to the audience. Then Prof. Werner Arnold clarified the closely linked history of the Arameans with the history of Christmas.
