Sisterhood February Zoom Programming: Uria Roth talking about the Abraham Accords
Uria Roth, our Milwaukee community Shaliach will present, Our New Friends- Israel’s New Peace Agreements on Tuesday, February 9th at 7pm at our sisterhood February Zoom Program.
Lately, Israel signed a deal that normalized relations with the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Morocco and more recently, Sudan. Bhutan, the small Himalayan nation has also normalized relations with Israel. These recent US negotiated deals called Abraham Accords Peace Agreement has “been a major policy achievement by the Trump administration” – an AP article noted in World Israel Network, January 6, 2021. According to the document on the Accords at whitehouse.gov issued on September 15,2020, it states “recognizing the Arab and Jewish people are descendants of a common ancestor Abraham, and inspired in that spirt to foster in the Middle East a reality in which Muslim, Jews, Christians…. Are committed to a spirit of coexistence, mutual understanding and mutual respect.”
The Abraham Accords marks the first normalization of relations between Arab countries and Israel since Egypt in 1979 and Jordan in 1994. Yaacov Katz wrote in the September 4-10, 2020 International Jerusalem Report that this has been “a ‘cold peace’ with little people to people exchange, very little tourism (except for the Sinai) and very little trade. However, this stable and lasting peace may be much different from the new Abraham Accords “normalization” with Arabs and Israelis alike looking forward to visiting and investing.
Uria will help us understand why these agreements are happening now and how the relationship will impact the relationship between the Palestinians and Israel. He will also discuss what the future possibly holds for the Middle East. Please join us for this important, timely and hopeful program. A zoom link will be sent to CEEW Sisterhood members and women who have requested to be notified of programming. Contact Cindy Levy at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive the link.
