YANA Town Hall — The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

January 31 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

YANA Monthly Town Hall
The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict: Exploring a Path Toward Peace

Featuring Greg Khalil ’03 LAW
Co-Founder of the Telos Group

Wednesday, January 31st, 6:30 PM ET
The Yale Club of New York City

Please join our kickoff event for the new year on Wednesday, January 31st at the Yale Club.

As tensions rise in the Middle East, many of us are left wondering: What does it mean for the world? What does it mean for us back home? Our first conversation will be with Gregory Khalil, ’03 LAW. Greg is the co-founder of the Telos Group, which equips American leaders to more effectively address seemingly intractable conflict — including in the Middle East, where they’ve worked for more than 15 years.

Greg will share Telos’s principles and practices of peacemaking, including their pro-Israeli, pro-Palestinian, pro-peace approach that focuses on sustaining dignity, freedom, and security for all.

This event is open to all YANA members, friends, and family. There is no charge but registration is required. Please RSVP for the town hall and join us for cocktails in the Main Lounge following the program.
