Speakers

Gadeer Kamal-Mreeh
Born to a Druze family in the village of Daliyat al-Karmel on Mount Carmel, Gadeer served as the first Druze woman to anchor a Hebrew-language news program on Israeli television, the first female Druze member of Israel’s legislature (from April 2019-April 2021), and now, as the first Druze to serve as an Israeli emissary for the Jewish Agency. Kamal-Mreeh balances national and local responsibilities to forge meaningful connections between Israel and world Jewry.
