The Vicariate for Palestinian–Jordanian Communities in the USA (formerly the Jerusalem Patriarchate in America) comprises the Orthodox churches formerly under the omophorion (authority) of Patriarch Theophilos III of Jerusalem, but since 2007 under the jurisdiction of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople.

History[edit]

The Patriarchate of Jerusalem has a long history in the United States dating back to the 1920s. These parishes remained under the Jerusalem Patriarchate until 2007, when the Jerusalem Patriarchate subsequently decided to leave the jurisdictional scene in North America.[1]

On August 5, 2008, the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, which is an eparchy of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople, announced that the Patriarchate of Constantinople had agreed with the Patriarchate of Jerusalem to transfer the Jerusalem parishes in America to a "Vicariate for Palestinian/Jordanian Communities in the USA" within the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople.[1] The vicar would operate under the authority of the primate of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America.[2]
