    The Check-in: South Africa takes Israel to Court UPDATE - The ICJ's first ruling, and what it means...

    UPDATE!! This morning, the International Court of Justice issued its ruling on the provisional measures of South Africa's case against Israel at The Hague, after it accused it of failing its commitments to the Genocide Convention in its campaign in Gaza.

    This ruling is potentially a world-pivoting event. Listen to find out why...

    BUT FIRST, be sure to listen to our previous episode discussing the case:
    "The Check-in: South Africa takes Israel to Court."

    *David was recording on the road today so audio-quality wasn't as sharp as normal. He promises to remember his mic next time :)

    The Check-in: South Africa takes Israel to Court

    The Check-in: South Africa takes Israel to Court

    All you need to know about South Africa's case against Israel at the International Court of Justice in The Hague.

    South Africa's complaint accuses Israel of breaching its commitments to the Genocide Convention in relation to its 100+ day war against the people of Gaza, in which more than 24,000 people have been killed. The significance of this case could not be higher.

    What difference will it make for the people of Gaza and Israel, how might the US be held accountable in a future hearing, and what can we—those of us who care to see the dignity of all upheld in the region—do to support a future of mutual flourishing?

    The Check-in: Language, Antisemitism, Anti-Palestinianism, and Peacemaking

    The Check-in: Language, Antisemitism, Anti-Palestinianism, and Peacemaking

    This week, we take a deeper dive into the ongoing conversations and questions around language that have surfaced in our nation (and across the world) since October 7. We discuss how to speak in both honest and yet invitational ways that keep mutual flourishing at the center. We’ll hear from Eli, who joins us from Jerusalem, and touch on how we – as peacemakers – can hold multiple perspectives in tension at once, while practicing listening to understand.

    The Check-in: Updates and What's Next

    The Check-in: Updates and What's Next

    ** Since we recorded this podcast, we received the news that Israel and Hamas had reached a deal regarding a release of hostages and a 4-day ceasefire. Check out our Instagram for our response. As such, this conversation reflects a previous reality but includes helpful discussion we think is still worth sharing. **

    40 days after October 7, what are realities on the ground for Israelis and Palestinians? What does the next day after a ceasefire look like? What else can we do to support not just an end to the bloodshed, but a transformation of the deeper issues that keep the region from a true and lasting peace?

    The Telos team gets together to discuss.

    Peace Songs: Accomplice

    Peace Songs: Accomplice

    In the midst of so much sorrow and grief, we released Peace Songs, a record in partnership with Good Shepherd Collective on our Principles and Practices of Peacemaking.

    When it was planned to be released at the end of October, we didn't know it would come as a timely dose of beauty and hope in a time of so much sorrow. But we are glad it has.

    Listen to a conversation with David Gungor and Kate Gungor, Liz Vice and Diana Gameros about the new album and one of the songs, Accomplice.

    The Check-in: FAQ on the Crisis in Israel/Gaza

    The Check-in: FAQ on the Crisis in Israel/Gaza

    This week, we answer some of your most frequently asked questions on what's happening in Israel and Gaza, how we got here, and what it will take to get out, including questions like:

    - Why did the US veto a UN Security Council resolution for a humanitarian pause?
    - What will a ceasefire actually accomplish?   
    - If it's a 6000 year old conflict (hint, that's a myth), will it ever actually end?

    Tune in for the update on the region, and a reminder of the agency each of us has in this moment to advocate for lasting, durable peace, and human rights for all.

The transformative power of story

Awesome Pod! The thought provoking conversations and personal stories that are shared are much needed in an increasingly divided world that is so full of violence, conflict, fear, hatred, and misunderstandings. As Rev. Mitri Raheb says, “Hope is what you do.”

Needed by people like me who don’t think they need it

As a former Telos employee I often see the titles of new episodes and think ‘I don’t need this’. Then something nudges me to listen. And every time I’m moved by the moral beauty and the intellectual rigor of the conversation. I’m very grateful for the quality of the content, the boldness of the voices, and the reach of the topics being explored. Love what Telos continues to put out. Listen and you won’t be disappointed.

Much needed honest perspectives on I-P from peacemakers

I’m so grateful for this pod! This organization has seriously impacted my own peacemaking journey as well as my continual learning of Israel-Palestine. The Check-in is incredible because it brings together peacemakers in the US and in Jerusalem and Jaffa to talk about what’s really happening in a balanced, but honest way. An excellent place to get news, solid perspective, and a few laughs! Absolutely recommend.
