The Druze in the United States


Pages: 5-8


Abstract  ǀ  full text


The first immigrants arrived in the United States with the aim of becoming rich. In 1907, a group of Druze immigrants to the United States set up the first brotherhood organization under the name “Al-Bachorat al-Durzia”. They intended to preserve their religion, culture and Druze identity. In 1947, the younger generation of the Druze immigrants took over the leadership and expanded the operations of the organization. Second- and third-generation Druze Americans are often assimilated into American youth culture.
