What did Abraham have to do with the Abraham Accords?

Sunday, April 14, 1:00-2:00 pm, Zoom

While the political motivations for Arab states to normalize relations with Israel are well known, this session looks at the religious-cultural language around the Abraham Accords. Was this just branding, or a real attempt to rewrite the script of Arab-Jewish relations? And what will be the fate of all this following the Israel-Hamas war?  Led by Dr. Toby Greene, this program is produced by the Community Scholar Program and sponsored by the Adult Learning Committee.
