The Fellowship has launched a new initiative to provide humanitarian assistance to members of the Druze community hurt by the ongoing conflict in southern Syria, according to an announcement made by Rabbi Eckstein on Sunday:

IFCJ announced it will provide monthly assistance to roughly 50 families who recently fled from Syria to Jordan to escape the ongoing violence. The six months of assistance will cover food and medical care costs and amounts to 500,000 shekels [about $132,000].

During the meeting, Rabbi Eckstein promised to provide additional support to the Druze refugees, as needed, and to remain in close contact with Druze leaders in Israel who can keep him updated on the volatile state of the Druze community in Syria.

“From the very beginning, the IFCJ has worked to safeguard the Druze community and to advance their integration into Israel’s society and economy,” said Rabbi Eckstein, who added, “We believe the Druze to be true partners to Israel’s security and wellbeing.”
