SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

Ehud Olmert will host Mahmoud Abbas in the sukkah of his official Jerusalem residence.

The Israeli prime minister and Palestinian Authority president on Wednesday will hold the latest in an accelerated series of summits to discuss peacemaking agendas, aides said over the weekend.

Israel and the Palestinian Authority are preparing for a U.S.-sponsored peace conference expected to be held in late November. Israeli officials said that working teams appointed by either side would also hold their first talks Wednesday, but the Palestinian Authority said those meetings had not yet been set.
