Dr. Jamil Beyhum 1887 - 1978

He worked for fairness to all Lebanese, their welfare and their unity. He believed in a secular form of government , as such his friends & companions in his patriotic struggle are numerous, they are from all the mosaic of sects in Lebanon and the rest of the Arab World, to name but few of the Christians, I would like to start with Gibran Khalil Gibran, Amine Rihani, Mikhaiil Naiymi,

Gibran Tueni (father of Ghassan Tueni) , Dr. Fares El-Khoury, Emile Lahoud (M.P & Minister) ,

Dr. Georges Hanna, Pierre Edde, Antoine Tabet, Emile Ghoury, and another great man

Dr. Clovis Maksoud , I could go on and on and on . I hope this generation of ours can take an example of the team work of our parents and grand parents, irrespective of their religious faith.

Jamil Beyhum helped schooling youths Moslems and Christians alike.

Jamil Beyhum participated in funding the construction of a church in the village of Kmatiyeh

About Me

" Beyhum " is a Lebanese family; the spelling of the name "Beyhum" in books, magazines, newspapers and search engines has been altered by its authors probably to take into account the pronunciation as best appropriate to the Country of publication.   For a maximum coverage, any interested person may wish to go to the search engine(s)  of his/her choice and look for the following:   Beyhum   bayhum   beyhoum  bayhom  beiham  beyhom beyum bayhoum bayhum baihoum beihom beihum   These are 2 examples of variations in the spelling:  Abdallah Beyhum is also spelled  Abdullah Bayhum, and Omar Beyhum also spelled Omar Beyhoum, Omar Bayhum, Umar Bayhum . We are unable to trace in all certainty the origin of the Beyhum family prior to the mid-eighth century AD, what is certain is that we took part in the conquest of Spain; our ancestors accompanied " Emir Abd al-Rahman I " in the conquest as notables and politicians. In 1310 AD they left Spain and headed to Beirut.
