    Adeeb Joudeh al-Husseini, a Muslim man, is the keyholder of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem and the holder of the stamp of the Holy Tomb.

    He is a part of an old tradition that dates back to the time of the liberation of Jerusalem from the Crusaders.

    He, along with many Muslim families in the Palestinian occupied territories, have been guardians of many churches.
