Johnny A. Bahbah is a Palestinian Arab born and raised in Jerusalem. His family has been Christian longer than there are memories or historical records. Membership in one of the oldest Christian communities of the Holy Land is a matter of substantial pride to the family. Mr. Bahbah graduated from Fréres High School (a French private school) in Jerusalem in 1979. He followed his brother to study at Brigham Young University in 1982, where he received a BS in travel and tourism in 1985. He then completed his master’s degree in geography and began work at the Harold B. Lee Library on the BYU campus as he studied library science. He and his wife, Eija, from Finland, are the parents of three children. They live in Lawrenceville, New Jersey, where Mr. Bahbah is a librarian at Princeton University’s Firestone Library.
