Oasis of Peace is the English translation of the name of Neve Shalom (Hebrew) / Wahat al-Salam (Arabic).
Founded by Bruno Hussar, it is situated midway between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. It is a community where Jewish and Palestinian Arab Israeli citizens have lived together in peace for the past 40 years.
Together, they have a unique way of educating their children, teaching them in both languages about each other’s cultures, religions and traditions.
Come and see the Village for yourself to meet the people and learn about the work.
Road Show & Further information - Since Tali's and Nadine's visit in April, we have had so much positive feedback. It is generally agreed that as Ambassadors, they were superb, embodying the ethos of Neve Shalom / Wahat al-Salam and the reason why it deserves our support. Back at the Village, they have developed a monthly community based social lecture programme as a way to increase peaceful discourse and develop a close knit community.
