Israel Tennis & Education Center – Galilee-Sajur
Given its location, ITEC Galilee-Sajur holds the promise of becoming the epicenter for coexistence in Israel. Surrounded by Circassian, Druze, Christian-Arab and Muslim-Arab villages, as well as Jewish towns and the large city of Karmiel, ITEC Galilee-Sajur serves as a meeting ground for the different religious and ethnic communities in the area. Through unique equal opportunity scholarships and programs, ITEC Galilee-Sajur affords the children of these communities the opportunity to acquire life skills while developing an appreciation for different cultures and religions.
A unique feature of the Center is it’s meeting hall honoring and commemorating the town’s Druze heritage. It is used by children, teens, adults, IDF soldiers, members of the security forces and the entire Druze community who make up the majority of the population in Sajur. Today the Druze people are nationally recognized for their numerous contributions to Israeli society, and many have risen to national prominence. In return, ITEC identified the need for a center with programs exclusively catering to the Druze community.
