Our Vision

Druze identity is defined by family values and traditions that engulf and reflect the teachings of the Tawheed faith. As a Druze organization in the United states, the ADS is bringing its Druze members together to share and preserve their faith, values, heritage, and culture. The principles of the Tawheed Druze faith are based on the Oneness of God and from this base come the seven tenets that every Druze is obligated to honor. Core principles of our faith, especially truthfulness, safeguarding of our brethren, and the belief in One God makes us all brothers and sisters in faith. That creates a strong, and solid sense of unity and belonging for our members.

It is the Druze common goal to be united wherever we are regardless of borders, or national origin.

DRUZE CONNECTS PEOPLE

The American Druze Society unites over 2000 people.

Members gather from all across the globe with their unique cultures and ideas to make share in kinship, friendship, and professional connections.

WE SOLVE PROBLEMS

No challenge is too big

The Druze Society has donated over 2.5 million dollars to charitable organizations. We work to promote peace, and well-being for all.

Druze in America

The first Druze organization in America was created in 1908. Early Druze settlers felt the need to protect and preserve their identity, therefore it was essential for them to sustain their identity, faith, culture and history here in America. The organization grew in a few states where Druze communities were established and in 1962, American Druze Society drafted a Constitution and By-laws which provided the fundamental foundations of the organization's structure.

The main mission of the organization was and still is to bring Druze families in our new and adopted land closer to each other in order to sustain the Druze identity, faith, culture and history.
