Methodology The field study — centred on thirty-one Arab, Bedouin, and Druze villages in the Galilee. Open in a separate window. Wedding preparations under sacred trees In some villages there are sacred trees which are called "Sajarat el Orsan the groom's tree, 8 or "Sagarat el Arus The bride's tree, 7. Rainmaking rituals The rainmaking ceremony at the village of Kaukab Abu el Heija, in the Western Galilee, was so famous that people from other villages in the region used to take part and each delegation brought its special flags which were assigned for this specific purpose.
Discussion The tree as a social centre In many cases it is easy to attribute meetings under the tree not to its sancticity but simply because many of them are very large and give a lot of shade 5. Judging under the tree Judging under trees is known from Biblical times Judges Sacrifices under the tree Sacrifices have been carried out since time immemorial in almost in every known culture, to propitiate gods and spirits, to restore the divine connection and to wipe out the offence, [[ 28 ]: passim], according to this author [[ 28 ]: VII] " Sulkha Sulkhas being conciliations between families, especially when serious quarrels or murder were involved.
Rain making ceremonies Rainmaking ceremonies are known worldwide in many diverse communities [[ 12 ]: passim]. If the trees are cut, no clouds would come up to the mountain top and there would be no rains" 3. Rag tying It seems that the custom of tying rags onto sacred trees exists in almost every known human culture, going beyond the borders of religion, geography and time [[ 84 ]:passim; [ 85 ]; I: ; [ 12 ]:7—96, see [ 21 ] for a review].
Hammering nails into sacred trees Hammering nails as well as hanging clothes are "tying" rituals, whereby the person seeks healing or a solution to problems by transferring his or her illness or problems to the tree, or to whatever object the clothes are hung on or nails hammered into. Weddings People used to arrange weddings under the sacred tree to receive blessings from the saint to whom the tree is dedicated 24 and, also, just because it was almost the only large available tree that gave considerable shade 5 , all of which are Bedouin who stressed that the tree was a meeting point because of this very reason.
Taking vows Vows are taken under a sacred tree just as they are in saints' shrines [[ 19 ]—]. Incense According to Groom [[ ]:1] "Incense has had a continuous religious significance throughout the entire expanse of history from the first civilization to the present day Light, through its presence or absence, sets apart the sacred from the profane" Candles and oil lamps are lit on the graves of righteous people and saints by Jews as well as Muslims in Palestine [ Moshe Yerushalmy in [ ]; [ ]] as well as in Morocco [[ 44 ]].
Charity Visitors to sanctuaries, in Palestine, used to leave objects in honour of the saint as votive objects, as part of a fulfillment of a vow or for use by later visitors; these included candles, oil for lamps [ 19 ]—, also personal observations], incense [ 19 ]] and matches [ 19 ]]. Kissing and embracing of the tree This custom seems to be almost exclusive to the Druze.
Monotheistic vs. The uniqueness of some Druze customs Some customs such as rainmaking ceremonies, burials, pronouncing judgment, conducting a Sulkha, and leaving water under the sacred tree are absent in the Druze sector. References Turner HW. The Hague: Mouton; The Sacred and the Profane.
