JCFR Celebrates Peace Agreements between Israel, the UAE, and Bahrain

The Jewish Community Federation of Richmond Celebrates the US Brokered Peace Agreements Between Israel, the United Arab Emirates, and Bahrain

September 16, 2020

The Jewish Community of Richmond joins with Jewish communities around the globe in celebrating the historic peace agreements signed at the White House between Israel, the United Arab Emirates, and Bahrain.

We welcome the full normalization of ties and the establishment of diplomatic relations agreed to by both Arab states - and the principles of peace and cooperation expressed in the Abraham Accords.

We applaud this continued progress toward a new Middle East and a lasting peace achieved through dialogue and diplomacy.

The Jewish Community Federation of Richmond congratulates Israel, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and the Trump administration for the hard work that led to this remarkable achievement. We look forward to the months and years ahead when other Arab states join in this accord - and to a time when Israel and the Palestinian leadership can find common ground through a similar diplomatic path toward peace.
