THE STORY. AT A GLANCE.
The ground-breaking peace deal between the UAE and Israel makes the Emirates an exciting and enticing destination for Jews all over the world. The door is now wide open for all Jewish tourists to comfortably enter the United Arab Emirates, which is famous for its stunning skylines, opulent hotels, and endless golden dunes. On your journey, you may want to explore the two most famous emirates – Dubai with its mesmerizing iconic landmarks, including Burj Khalifa, the tallest tower in the world, and Abu Dhabi, the UAE’S capital, home to the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, one of the most beautiful and picturesque mosques in the world. The UAE is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to encounter an exotic culture while appreciating jaw-dropping architectural wonders.
INSIDE OUT. JEWISH UAE.
Since the formation of the United Arab Emirates in 1971, a small Jewish community has always existed. The number of Jews who now live and worship freely in the UAE has grown exponentially and the Abraham Accords (UAE-Israel peace treaty), has created hope for the future. In recent years, the UAE has made great strides in presenting itself as an open country that respects all religions. President Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan declared 2019 to be the “The Year of Tolerance.” To that end, the country constructed the Abrahamic Family House. It consists of a mosque, church, synagogue, and educational center and is located on Saadiyat Island, the cultural heart of Abu Dhabi.
