Language Russian

They are quite different from us... They think differently, dress differently, and eat differently...

They believe in the transmigration of souls. One cannot become like them - one can only be born as one of them. Arabs do not consider them Arabs, and Muslims do not consider them Muslims.

They do not have a sense of humor. They are not afraid of death. They are perfect warriors. They are loyal to the State of Israel.

THEY ARE THE Druze.

We invite you to try to unravel the mysteries of the Druze community - the most closed and secluded of all ethnic groups in Israel. We will visit Druze villages.

Ussefiya Druze Village: We will visit the Druze Heritage Museum, explore the historical center of the village, and learn about the traditions and religion of the Druze.

Dalia al-Carmel Druze Village: We will immerse ourselves in the world of art. Artist Sam Halabi will share his techniques and showcase his paintings, known not only in Israel but around the world. Afterwards, you will have the opportunity to purchase a painting that catches your eye.

Guests of Futa: We will stop for lunch, where you can taste traditional dishes for an additional fee and get to know the products of the hospitable hostess.

We will take a stroll through the historical center of the village, approach the Elefant House, and visit the market where handmade crafts are sold.

Attractions

Savta Dzhamilya

In Peki'in, Druze and Jewish communities have peacefully coexisted for centuries. In Jewish tradition, Peki'in is renowned for the cave where Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai and his son, Rabbi Elazar ben Shimon, hid from the Romans for 13 years following the defeat of the Bar-Kochba revolt against Roman rule.

Peki'in is also home to the factory-store that produces soap and aromatic products made from olives under the internationally renowned brand "Savta Jamila."
