There is also a small Jewish community, which has decreased substantially since the 19th century. Arabic is the official language, but many educated people can speak English and/or French. Sunni Muslims are 74% of the population, with the Shia Muslims at 13%. Christians make up 10%, and the remainder are mostly Druze. The largest cities are Aleppo, Damascus and Homs.
