The delegation is supported by Voices of Israel and hosted by the American Jewish Committee.

The group will meet officials from the White House, State Department, Congress, and Senate, and attend a bi-partisan roundtable discussion that will be held in Congress hosted by the Abraham Accords Caucus.

They will also meet representatives of the European Union, think tanks, academics, faith leaders, students, and philanthropists, each of whom will discuss how the Abraham Accords have changed their lives for the better.
