Arabs, are the largest ethnic minority group in Israel, accounting for 20.7% of the total Israeli population. Most of the Arab population in Israel lives in predominantly Arab communities in close proximity to Jewish towns, with high exposure to westernized foods and eating habits. Arab communities are still undergoing a transition from a mainly agrarian society, to a more urbanized one. On the whole, compared to the Jewish population, Arabs in Israel have lower socioeconomic status and poorer health awareness.

To learn more about the Saint Pantaleon Foundation, the 501 (c)(3) organization which provides finances and direction for this important work you can visit https://www.saintpantaleon.org. David and Autumn will be keeping regular updates on this blog site as well as on their Facebook Page, also.
