Greg is Jewish. As a teen, he visited Israel (for his sister's Bat Mitzvah). As an adult, he has spoken at events involving Jewish leaders &/or Jewish audiences of all ages. For example, at a day-long event, Greg & Nobel Peace Prize honoree Elie Wiesel were the two guest speakers. Other events have included audiences of Jewish youth, teens, undergraduates, camp staff, philanthropists and seniors (including a special event for Holocaust Survivors). SCROLL DOWN
In some cases, a group has used the books - and - had Greg speak at an event. For instance, a program for Jewish teens got the books for its participants in advance of their trip to Israel & had Greg serve as Scholar-in-Residence for their Shabbaton Retreat. Zeta Beta Tau got copies for every attendee at its Convention & had Greg serve as keynote speaker. He also was honored as ZBT's annual Man of Distinction. He has been featured by media such as The Washington Post and Jewish Journal. He has written for the media as well (i.e. Canadian Jewish News). SCROLL DOWN
The books, workbooks & posters based on his story have been used by schools, synagogues, companies & organizations -- getting copies for Bar Mitzvah students or Tikkun Olam projects, teen philanthropy programs, faculty/staff development, donors, &/or as part of their community outreach. Locations like U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum & National Museum of American Jewish History have selected the books for their on-site stores. During the pandemic, Greg has partnered with a variety of synagogues and other Jewish organizations on long-distance activities.
