Sheikh Ameer Tareef
Sheikh Ameen Tareef was born in 1898 in the village of Julis, located in the Upper Western Galilee in Israel. Ameen was the youngest son in his religious family, which had four sons and two daughters. Ameen graduated his studies after the fourth grade (the highest grade of the elementary school at that time). In 1911, at the age of 31, he went to Hilwat El Biada, the regional center for studies of the Druze religion, near the town of Hatzbaya, at the feet of Mount Hermon in Lebanon. There he studied the basics of the religion until the year 1918.
After his return to his village Julis, the Sheikh adapted a life of abstinence from luxury and lived modestly from growing grains for his own needs. In 1928, after the death of his father, Sheikh Muhammad Tareef, of blessed memory, who has been sending as the leader of the Druze community for 40 years, it was decided to appoint Ameen as the successor to his father. This was in spite of his refusal and the refusal of a minority from the community.
Sheikh Ameen led the Druze people as their religious and spiritual leader until the day of his death, on 2/10/1993. His death was a great loss to the Druze community in Israel, the Middle East and in the rest of the world. A unique funeral with over 150 thousand participants, Druze and others, took place on 4/10/1993. Among others, present in the funeral were the President of the State of Israel, Mr. Ezer Weitzman, the late Prime Minister, Mr. Yitzchak Rabin, the Chairman of the Knesset (the Israeli Parliament) and other Members of the Knesset. Simultaneously, additional ceremonies took place in different places in Syria and Lebanon in the presence of tens of thousands Druze.
