URJ Statement: The Abraham Accords

Contact: Lauren Theodore,, 212-650-4154
The URJ praises the announcement of an historic peace deal that will lead to a full normalization of diplomatic relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, known as the “Abraham Accords,” and hopes it will lead other countries in the region to follow suit and provide an opportunity for Israel and its Palestinian neighbors to return to the negotiating table.
