Pro-Israeli, Pro-Palestinian, Pro-Peace

Our Mission

We form communities of American peacemakers, equipping them to help reconcile seemingly intractable conflict, at home and abroad.


Though the current Israeli Government has suspended formal annexation of the West Bank, ongoing de facto annexation of Palestinian land remains a significant roadblock to peace.

American pro/pro/pro activists play a special and urgent role in opposing annexation and ensuring a life of security, dignity, and freedom for Israelis and Palestinians alike.

Racial Equity

While Israel/Palestine is our focus, we know that in order to authentically advocate for peace in another land, we must first understand our own.
We've partnered with a number of community and national organizations to provide a unique pilgrimage in the US South. For more information about that trip, check the "Issue Areas" tab.

What Is Telos?

Telos began focusing on one aspect of one seemingly intractable conflict: America’s relationship to the Holy Land. Watch this video to learn about our pro-Israeli, pro-Palestinian, pro-peace approach.
