For the first time, in 2010, the Circassian culture events and the "Come and Visit" festival took place in Kfar Kama and Reihania and in the Druze villages- Bet Jann, Horfesh and Pekiin. The festivals were a success shown by thousands of Israelis that visited the villages in order to learn about the special cultures of both communities from the Galilee.
During the festival there were performances, tours, open houses, tasting events and workshops in the villages. In the Circassian villages the celebrations were opened with a central performance of an international Circassian band that displayed the special Circassian courtship. In the villages there were bicycle and carriage tours, visitors' centers and museums about the communities were opened, workshops for making Halwas (dough with cheese, unique Circassian cooking), dancing and more. In the Druze villages the visitors were invited to visit the homes, walk in the alleys and the ancient village centers, join workshops and hear about the secret traditions and beliefs of the Druze. www.jabel.org.il
