Amoun Sleem, the director and founder of the Domari Society of Gypsies in Jerusalem, is a Dom who established Domari Gypsy Center in 2000 to protect Domari culture and traditions, to improve Domari life, and to help eliminate racism against the Dom. She has published two books: Dreaming of Jerusalem and The Dom of Jerusalem: A Gypsy Community Chronicle, and is working on other publications to make available information on this segment of the population. Amoun hopes that the Domari community will obtain minority status in the Holy Land and that bridges can be built between the Dom and other minorities in order to create a more cohesive society where all are respected and understood.
