    AJC UAE Office; Reflections on #BlackJewishUnity Week

    AJC UAE Office; Reflections on #BlackJewishUnity Week

    AJC, which for more than 25 years has advanced understanding and fostered cooperation between Arab states and the Jewish people, last week announced its plans to open an office in the United Arab Emirates – the organization’s first permanent presence in the Arab world. The move comes in the wake of the historic announcement last month by U.S. President Donald Trump, His Highness Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan of the UAE, and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that the UAE and Israel would establish full diplomatic relations. On this week’s episode, we’re joined by AJC Chief Policy and Political Affairs Officer Jason Isaacson, who has long led AJC delegations to the Gulf and maintains close ties with senior Emirati officials, to speak about this historic announcement. Then, in our closing segment, Shabbat Table Talk, we hear from AJC Young Leadership Program Associate Naomi Ravick on her thoughts during #BlackJewishUnity Week, a partnership between AJC and the National Urban League.
