Symposiums & Lectures

Because education is one of the most powerful gifts one could give, ADF extends regular invitations to renowned scholars and religious authorities to participate in symposia and panels/seminars held at various community events nationwide. Topics covered include history, ethnicity and identity, philosophy, anthropology, human rights, and sociology.In February 2008, ADF sponsored a symposium entitled “Druze Heritage: Roots, Development and Challenges of Modernity” at the U.S. Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. The day-long symposium featured ten renowned Druze and non-Druze scholars from major academic institutions and the American Druze Foundation.
