Join us on Monday, November 26, 6:30pm in New York City for the third evening of our Palestinian Voices Speaker Series. This special Encounter evening will feature intimate conversation with Greg Khalil, President and Co-Founder of The Telos Group, an organization dedicated to strengthening the capacity of American faith communities — especially American evangelicals — to transform the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Nearly eight years after Greg was a speaker on Encounter’s earliest trips we’re delighted to offer you an opportunity to learn from the unique insights he brings as a Palestinian-American and former member of the Negotiations Support Unit now doing work with a diversity of faith communities vis-a-vis the conflict. Greg’s perspective offers a unique lens on constructive modes of engaging American faith communities in a new kind of activism and education about the conflict. Join us in exploring the interconnection between religion and conflict transformation.
Before founding the Telos Group, Greg Khalil lived in Ramallah, the West Bank, where he advised the Palestinian leadership on peace negotiations with Israel. Although Greg was born and raised in San Diego, California, much of his extended family still lives in Beit Sahour, a predominantly Palestinian Christian town near Bethlehem. He has lectured widely on the Middle East and has been published by The Review of Faith & International Affairs and The New York Times. Greg is a graduate of the University of California, Los Angeles and Yale Law School.
