When the Abraham Accords were announced in September 2020, I knew that the one thing that was going to change for sure was the political and diplomatic relationship between Israel and the UAE. Almost a year into the accords, the unexpected happened:  I was invited to spend a traditional Shabbat experience In Manhattan.
Yair Lapid, Israel’s new foreign minister and alternate prime minister, conducted a historic visit to the United Arab Emirates (June 29-30). Lapid landed in Abu Dhabi after first flying to Rome where he met the US Secretary of State, himself representing a new administration, and Bahrain’s foreign minister. Lapid’s visit can be described as kicking off the next stage of the Abraham Accords.
The Abraham Accords are a series of peace agreements between Israel and several Arab countries, the UAE being the first. The United States helped broker the historic joint statement after months of negotiation, and the leaders of both Middle Eastern nations formally signed the agreement on August 13, 2020.
