Dep. Minister Kara, Rabbis Ask Syrians: Keep Holy Sites Safe
Deputy Minister of Galilee and Negev Development Ayoub Kara on Wednesday accompanied a high-level delegation of religious leaders to a symposium in Turkey, where they will ask Syrians to make sure holy sites are not damaged in the current civil war.
The delegation includes Holon's Rabbi, Rav Avraham Yosef, son of Rav Ovadiah Yosef, and Rav Avraham Sherman, who heads the Great Rabbinical Court of Appeals in Jerusalem.
Holy men from all of Israel's recognized religions are participating in the delegation to a symposium against global religious extremism. Kara is not a religious figure, but belongs to the Druze religious community.
