Stories Of The Galilee

A Virtual Tour of the Village of Peqiin, a Druze Town

Presented by WOKI  and Partnership2Gether

  • Date: Sunday, August 8th
  • Time: at 10:00am

Virtually walk through the alleys of picturesque Peqiin and hear the stories that make Peqiin so unique in Israel’s tapestry.

  • Peqiin is both beautiful and intriguing: Who was Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai and why was he hiding in a cave?
  • How did a Dutch couple find itself living in a Druze village?
  • Who are the Druze and how are they integrated in Israel?
  • Why was the Picture of Peqiin on the 100 NIS bill?
  • Who is the Last Jew in Peqiin?
  • How did Jamilla Hir, a poor girl who could not even afford shoes, become the wealthiest Druze worldwide?

Michael Bauer of Bauer Trails looks forward to bringing Peqiin to life with you.
