hey were seen praying at the Western Wall (Kotel) in Jerusalem and left prayer notes between the cracks of its stones, as is customary, reported Arutz Sheva.

Last year, Kushner established the Abraham Accords Peace Institute and tasked it with ensuring that the accords, which saw Israel normalize relations with the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Morocco and Sudan, reach their full potential.

“The Abraham Accords is the rare foreign-policy effort that has achieved a bipartisan consensus, and this is very, very important,” he stated in September 2021.

The Wall Street Journal reported last month that Saudi Arabia plans to invest millions of dollars in Israeli startups through a new private-equity fund set up by Kushner.

Kushner’s fund is expected to “invest Saudi money directly in Israeli companies—a symbolic measure that demonstrates the readiness of Saudi Arabia to be a part of the Israeli economy,” the Israeli business daily Globes said in May.
