Products by Shadi Khalloul.

Shadi Khalloul is an Aramean Christian Maronite Israeli. He is founder of the Israeli Christian Aramaic Association (ICAA), an NGO reviving the Aramean identity, heritage and language, and rebuilding the first Christian Aramaic community and town in Galilee - Kafr Bir`im in northern Israel. In early 2007 Shadi started lobying for Christians in Israel to be allowed to register as Arameans on their identity cards; which led in September 2014 to approval from the Israeli government. Then in the 2015 Israeli elections he was the first native local Christian Aramean to be a candidate for the Knesset.
