IFCJ Supports Jewish-Druze Leadership Council

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.

You can heed the biblical mandate “not to turn away from your own flesh and blood” (Isaiah 58:7) and provide a needy elderly Jew, like Olga, with food, heating fuel, warm clothes, and blankets this winter. Every day is important as the harsh cold winds descend upon the former Soviet Union. Please prayerfully consider giving your best and most generous gift to The Fellowship today for this lifesaving work.
