Thursday, Aug 13 2020

Hadassah, The Women’s Zionist Organization of America, Inc. National President Rhoda Smolow and CEO/Executive Director Janice Weinman released the following joint statement today following the announcement by the United States, Israel, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on the normalization of relations between Jerusalem and Abu Dhabi.

“Hadassah applauds the courageous and historic decision announced today that Israel and the UAE will enjoy full normalized relations with each other. This is a positive and welcomed development, one that we hope will lead to peace between Israel and all of its neighbors in the region.

“At Hadassah’s hospitals in Jerusalem, patients are cared for equally no matter who they are or where they are from. We are proud to serve all people as a place of peaceful coexistence, but we look forward to the day when peaceful coexistence is the norm throughout the Middle East.

“Israel’s right to exist is unquestionable, and its well-documented efforts over the course of 72 years to live in peace with its neighbors is beyond reproach. We celebrate the decision by leaders of both nations and pray that it is a turning point in the pursuit of broader peace.”
