Taking Back the Narrative is honored to feature in this episode Rabbi Dr. Elie Abadie, a TBTN Advisory Committee Member, who is currently the Senior Rabbi, Jewish Council of the Emirates – Sharei Mizrah, among other notable titles. Rabbi Abadie’s fascinating family history weaves together the movement, including accomplishments and tribulations, of Sephardic and Mizrahi Jewry. Today, he makes his home proudly in Dubai, completing the circle of Jewry in Arab lands – from Jews who were often treated as second class citizens and later expelled, to now proudly expanding Jewish communities in certain Gulf countries. Join us as we discuss the significance of the Abraham Accords, the current status of Jordan & Egypt as they relate to Israel, life for Jews in the UAE, and the importance of Muslim-Jewish relations today.
