Senior American and Israeli officials visiting the United Arab Emirates to negotiate the historic peace accord, joined the local Emirati Jewish community for Sharchis davening at the St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort in Abu Dhabi.

Leading the prayers was Rabbi Levi Duchman, the only full-time rabbi living in the United Arab Emirates. He was joined by Solly Wolf president of the Dubai JCC as well as other prominent local business leaders.

Before blowing the Shofar, Rabbi Duchman said a prayer for Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan and UAE President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, and thanked them for their visionary leadership, which brought about the historic Abraham Accord. 

Special Presidential Advisor Jared Kushner said he believes that it is “possible” and “logical” that all 22 Arab nations will recognize Israel one day, and that the fourth Arab nation may do so in the coming months.
