Former White House Advisor Jared Kushner and his wife Ivanka Trump, daughter of former U.S. President Donald Trump, will be at the Knesset on Monday for the inauguration of the Abraham Accords Caucus and to attend the grand opening of the new institute established by the former American ambassador to Israel.
Kushner was influential in brokering the historic peace treaty between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Sudan and Morocco.
Knesset members Ofir Akunis and Ruth Wasserman Lande will chair the caucus whose focus will be on advancing the Accords and recruiting other nations to join. Former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who signed the agreements with the UAE and Bahrain in a White House ceremony in September 2020, will attend the event.
The new caucus coincides with the grand opening of a new center established by former U.S. ambassador David Friedman. The Friedman Center for Peace through Strength is a nonprofit that will build on existing agreements, encourage more treaties such as the Abraham Accords and will work to advance peace and prosperity in the Middle East.
Former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will be the first recipient of The Friedman Center’s annual award at its grand opening dinner on Oct. 11 in Jerusalem. The event will also feature the premiere of a five-part documentary on the Abraham Accords, co-produced by Friedman and TBN.
