Mazel tovs rang out over the dunes of Dubai.
Just weeks after the normalization of relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, Anna Greenblatt, the daughter of former White House Middle East envoy Jason Greenblatt of Teaneck, was engaged in Dubai, where she was traveling with her father.
Mr. Greenblatt, an Orthodox Jew who served as US President Donald Trump’s lawyer before assuming a post in the Trump administration and serving a key role in crafting the Trump peace plan, posted a photo of the happy couple to Twitter.
“What an amazing, magical proposal and evening!!! The benefits of peace” he wrote, captioning a photo of the pair standing in front of a sandy and sunny background.
The same photo on Simcha Spot, a social media page, identified the fiancé as Eric Wietschner of Woodmere, one of Long Island’s Five Towns.
El Al ran its first direct flight from Israel to the UAE earlier this year, after the Abraham Accords, normalizing ties between the Emirates and Israel, was signed. It followed another agreement, this one between Israel and Bahrain.
