As the resumption of peace talks appeared to be near, Palestinian leadership has frozen contact with the U.S., effectively cutting off all communication after the Trump administration announced the closure of the PLO’s office in Washington, D.C.

Also this week in Israel in the News:

  • Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu responded to Iran’s refusal of aid from Israel after an earthquake devastated the Islamic Republic.
  • Donald Trump discussed with Vladimir Putin the future of war-torn Syria as ISIS’ influence fades in the ravaged Middle East region.
  • The Fellowship-supported Reut School Soup Kitchen in Jerusalem is operated by students who feed and care for hundreds of Jerusalem’s neediest each day.
  • After successful strikes by the U.S., ISIS has been almost completely driven from Iraq and continues to lose ground in Syria.

This week’s Israel in the News Perspective features Fellowship Senior Vice President Yael Eckstein on Thanksgiving and finding joy in life’s oft-overlooked situations.
