Beth Yeshurun Scrapbook - Israel/Arab Peace Talks, 1977-1978
Congregation Beth Yeshurun
The Camp David Accords were a series of agreements between representatives of Israel and Egypt. The agreement was brokered secretly by President Jimmy Carter at the U.S. presidential retreat at Camp David, Maryland, between Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin and Egyptian President Anwar el-Sādāt and signed on September 17, 1978. The goal of the Camp David Accords was to establish a framework for peace in the Middle East and led to a peace treaty the following year between those two countries – the first such treaty between Israel and any of its Arab neighbors. Sādāt and Begin were awarded the Nobel Prize for Peace in 1978 for their contributions to the agreements.
The scrapbook contains news clippings documenting the Israeli/Arab peace talks (Camp David Accords) in 1978 created by Mr. Cohen's 8th grade class at Beth Yeshurun Day School.
