Last night, over 100 elected officials, diplomats, intergroup and interfaith partners, and community leaders gathered with AJC at the home of Naty and Debbie Saidoff to celebrate the 4th night of Hanukkah. Before lighting the Hanukkiah together, Israeli Consul General Hillel Newman and UAE Consul General Hazza Alkaabi shared brief remarks about the Abraham Accords and how the burgeoning relationship between their two countries is bringing even more light to the world. It was a beautiful evening filled with warmth and joy, and we were so grateful to come together safely under the stars with so many of our friends.
