The Syriac Catholic Patriarchal Exarchate of Jerusalem (informally Jerusalem of the Syriacs) is a Patriarchal exarchate (missionary Eastern Catholic pre-diocesan jurisdiction) of the Syriac Catholic Church (Antiochian Rite in Syriac language and Arameic) for Palestine and Jordan.
It is directly dependent on the Syriac Catholic Patriarch of Antioch (with see in Beirut), but not part of his or any other ecclesiastical province, and depends in Rome on the Congregation for the Oriental Churches.
Established in 1991 as Patriarchal Exarchate of Jerusalem (Palestine and Jordan), on territory (Palestine and (Trans)Jordan) previously without proper Ordinary of the particular church sui iuris, which was governed as Patriarchal Vicariate of Jerusalem of the Syriacs.
All West Syriac Rite.
