Event Description

What’s it like to be a Druze woman and a leader in Israeli society? How are
Israeli Druze dealing with the complexities of their identity during the war
against Hamas?
For more perspective join us for Lunch and Learn with Gadeer Kamal-Mreeh, the
Jewish Agency’s first Druze emissary to the United States. Gadeer was the
first Druze woman to be elected to the Israeli Knesset, and in 2017 broke yet
another barrier by becoming the first non-Jewish anchorwoman in Israel to
broadcast the evening news in Hebrew. We’ll hear about Gadeer’s amazing
triumphs against remarkable odds, her work to empower other women by creating
opportunities for them to succeed, and what being a Druze Israeli is like
Lunch will be provided.
Presented in cooperation with the Jewish Agency For Israel.
