Yoseph Haddad, an Israeli-Arab social activist and CEO of Together—Vouch For Each Other, which works to bridge the gaps between Jews and Arabs, said: "Today we express our solidarity with the Jewish People by remembering the six million murdered Jews in the worst massacre in history, the Holocaust".

"We are here in this room and this gives us the opportunity to see the light for a better future," he said.

The event ended with the lighting of six candles in memory of the Six Million. 

The tribute is part of the #Cousins_Meetup program taking place this week, where Israeli and Emirati social media influencers are forging relationships between 'real' people and breaking cultural barriers.

Following the signing of the Abraham Accords, which normalized relations between Israel and the UAE, this is another step towards peace in the Middle East, thanks to ISRAELis! Subscribe for free to Breaking Christian News here
