Jack Saba, Program Director, Telos Group
For the past eight years, Jack Saba has been leading delegations of Americans who travel to Israel to learn about the Israel-Palestinian conflict through in-person meetings. Before his current position, Saba conducted research on civic rights of Palestinians inside Israel. He cofounded the Jaffa Youth Movement, a nonprofit organization that helped raised awareness on issues of citizenship, social justice, and conflict transformation in his hometown of Jaffa. Saba is also a husband and a father. His wife, Adrieh, is a brilliant entrepreneur, and together they own a Palestinian artisanal market that highlights handmade crafts and provides Palestinian creatives with connections to both online consumers and in-person visitors. Saba obtained his BA in international affairs from George Washington University and spent his early career working in international development in Washington, DC, before moving back to Jaffa in 2014.
