Daliyat El-Carmel

We at The Fellowship seek to bring together two of the most incredible supporters of Israel who couldn’t be more different and neither are Jews, the Christians, and the Druze. Join us for a tour, lecture from a spiritual leader, IDF military commander, or visit the Druze IDF pre-military college in Daliyat El-Carmel. Here also is the home of sir Lawrence Oliphant, and the site of Elijah’s contest with the servants of Ba’al on the Carmel mountain.

Groups are able to book a speaker on the Druze-Israel alliance, a workshop: pita making and Labane or other ethnic dishes, and a tour of the IDF Druze service memorials.

Groups can book a tour with a Druze guide (sometimes military officials if available) through the village including the Shuk, and Elijah the Prophet’s encounter with the Pagan worshipers of Ba’al on the Carmel mountain.

Exclusively, it is possible to book a Gadna visit to the pre-military college established with the help of the IFCJ in Daliyat El-Carmel – this involves joining a pre-military college attended by Druze and Jewish recruits in their preparation for elite positions in the IDF for a day.
