The Abraham Accords – This Middle East peace treaty may have been difficult to implement, but its impact has exceeded all expectations. One of the results is the cross-cultural atmosphere created by the A. A. and which went beyond the borders of the nations involved in the treaty.
This mutual interest and genuine friendship between Arab and Jewish communities around the world has inspired hundreds of thousands of people to embark on a new wave of cross-cultural tourism and spontaneous cross-cultural gatherings between local communities around the world.
Signed just under three years ago, the A. A. marks and celebrates this new era that will encourage others to follow suit and be part of this vision of the future where ancient traditions inspire growth and modernity in harmony and respect for our differences.
