The Druze people are a major part of Israeli society, taking part in Israeli life and serving in the IDF. IFCJ has long worked to build bridges between this community and the rest of the Jewish state, and The Jerusalem Post's Ariel Ben Solomon reports that now an IFCJ-supported leadership council will address the Druze population's concerns:
A Jewish-Druse council comprised of 60 leaders and public figures held its inaugural event on Thursday in Ra’anana with the goal of promoting Druse issues.
Moshe Ben Atar and Yosef Naser-Adin, chairman of the council, organized the event.
It was supported by the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews.
“Israel is the best for the Druse and it is also the best community for Israel,” said Naser-Adin.
