About Us

The Abraham Accords between Israel, the UAE and Bahrain opened the door to a new era of cooperation and friendship.
Sharaka, which means ‘partnership’, was founded by young leaders from Israel and the Gulf in order to turn the vision of people-to-people peace into a reality.

Our Story

We believe that realizing the tremendous potential of the Abraham Accords requires deepening mutual understanding, building personal ties, and encouraging diverse forms of cooperation.

Sharaka leads inter-faith delegations of young Israelis to the Gulf, which include Israeli Muslims, Druze, Christians, and Jews, and brings delegations of Emirati and Bahraini influencers to Israel to learn about Israeli culture and history.

Through our offices in Israel and the UAE, we organize joint initiatives, projects, and dialogues in order to build bridges between our societies.

As normalization between Israel and its Arab neighbors spreads, we are expanding our activities throughout the Middle East.

Our Mission

Sharaka seeks to build bonds between Israel and its neighbors in the Middle East and North Africa, based on the positive and paradigm-changing outcome of the Abraham Accords; to position itself as the leading actor promoting warm peace and normalization on the people-to-people; and act as as a hub for non-governmental collaborations and expertise, especially among the younger generation.
