Israeli Embassy to Egypt Reopens

A glimmer of peace progress appeared in the Middle East this week, as the Israeli embassy reopened in Cairo for the first time since diplomats and their families left in 2011, after violent protests arose over the deaths of five Egyptian policemen in Sinai. Israel says the countries are working together for stability and prosperity.

Also this week in Israel in the News:

• President Obama likely enough votes in Congress to pass the Iran nuclear deal.
• A jury has recommended the death sentence for the white supremacist who murdered three people at Jewish centers in Kansas.
• Refugees fleeing Syria have created a crisis in Europe.

This week’s Israel in the News Perspective features The Fellowship’s Ami Farkas on the upcoming Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah, which marks the beginning of the High Holy Days.
