The Midwest Federation of American-Syrian/Lebanese Clubs comprises similar clubs in nine Midwestern states.
Although our clubs are purely social and open to all regardless of creed, we support the faith of one another and recognize devotion to God as part of our heritage and traditional values. The Lebanese-American population is approximately 55% Catholic and 25% Orthodox; most individual members of the Federation practice one of these two faiths. Many of our founding immigrants integrated by joining existing Western Catholic and Orthodox communities rather than establishing Aramaic Christian rite churches. The following sites provide cultural references to traditional Lebanese and Syrian Churches in the United States:
St. Jude Children’s Hospital was founded by Lebanese-American actor Danny Thomas; its exclusive fundraising organization, The American Lebanese Syrian Associated Charities (ALSAC) is one of many charities supported by our Foundation and many individuals in the Federation.
Dave Thomas, the Founder of Wendy’s, was adopted by a Lebanese-American family. The current president of Wendy’s, David Karam, and several major Wendy’s franchisees, are also Lebanese-Americans. The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption seeks to improve the lives of North America’s most vulnerable children and is another charity supported by our Foundation and many of our individual members.
