Meeting the Druze
This EDI Extra takes you to a typical Druze village, where you’ll meet with elders of the community and partake in a traditional Druze meal.
An unusual community in Israel, the Druze represent a secret religious sect of Islam that is both strictly monotheistic and loyal to the state.
The Druze distinguish themselves in Israel’s army and in the string of Druze villages that span the Galilee and Golan. With relatives and commerce crossing the Syrian border, the Druze are a unique link to neighboring countries.
