1 – APRIL
To Our Druze Family,
The Heritage Magazine is part of the American Druze Society’s Communication Committee. Its main objective is to link our accomplished ADS community members with each other. The ADS community has a wealth of knowledge, experience in numerous fields, and rich in its Bani-Maarouf heritage. Our goal is to connect & inform all our members with timely cultural topics for all age groups.
Our mission & goal can be summarized as follows:
To serve the ADS community by providing information To act as a channel in linking our members To strengthen the bond between the National Board, Chapter Presidents, and the Membership To reflect our Society’s commitment and dedication to the preservation of our culture and heritage
The Heritage Magazine can facilitate the connecting of our members with each other by the simple sharing of their stories, their successes, their philanthropic ideals, their wisdom and personal experiences. As immigrants, our forefathers faced the challenges of a new homeland, of adversity, and of a language barrier. However, their pioneer spirits and Druze faith empowered them to face all challenges with a determination to succeed and to become good role models for their descendants as they founded our ADS. As American Druze, we need to continue to emulate our elders in dedicating quality time for our families, in working toward causes larger than ourselves, and in perpetuating our interconnectedness. Our Heritage Magazine intends to touch our readers with similar commitment to preserving our unique culture.
Our Heritage Magazine invites all our ADS members to consider participating in preserving our history and culture through submitting an entry of interest or on an area of expertise to the email addresses listed below for its next edition no later than April 30, 2008.
The ADS Heritage Magazine’s Publishing Team will review all submissions for publishing approval. Please be advised that the ADS Communication Committee has the right to revise, edit, accept, or decline all contributions. All accepted submissions would be acknowledged in writing to the original author(s) via email.
Thank you in advance for considering writing a submission in the ADS Our Heritage Magazine and for all your volunteer efforts!
Sincerely, ADS Our Heritage Magazine Publishing Team
