The Road to Peace: What Do the Abraham Accords Mean for Israel?

Join us for a virtual discussion with Member of Knesset Avi Dichter, who will share his insights on the new peace accords between Israel and its neighbours. This conversation, hosted by Barbara Crook, will give a better understanding of how these developments impact Israelis. The event will conclude with a moderated question period.

Avi Dichter is a Member of the Knesset for the Likud. Mr. Dichter is currently Chairman of Special Committee for Overseeing the Fund for Managing State Revenues, and has held the roles of: Deputy Minister of Defense, Chairman of the Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, Minister of Public Security, Minister of Home Front Defense and former Director of Shin Bet – the Israel Security Agency, and chairman of the Foundation for the Benefit of Holocaust Victims (volunteer). Son of Holocaust survivors, Mr. Dichter is named for his grandfather who was murdered in the Holocaust.

In the military, Dichter served on the Itamar team in Sayeret Matkal, and participated in secret operations carried out by the unit. Following his military service, Dichter began working for GSS as a sky marshal, and later filled a variety of field positions.

Following the assassination of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, Dichter was called in to rehabilitate the ISA’s bodyguard unit and was appointed head of security. He then served as head of the ISA during the second intifada – five of the most difficult years, with many terrorist attacks in Israel.
