There is a way, if equal multiplication actions with courage and love.
Neve Shalom / Wahat al-Salam, is a cooperative village of Jews and Palestinian Arabs of Israeli citizenship. The village is situated equidistant from Jerusalem and Tel Aviv-Jaffa.
The reality of Neve Shalom - Wahat al-Salam as a binational community serves as the base for its educational work. This section has articles and reports on the village’s government, infrastructure, and future development plans, some pages about community members, and a chronicle of events. Information regarding the volunteer program can be found here.
Neve Shalom - Wahat al-Salam gives practical expression to its vision of an egalitarian society through pioneering educational work at The School for Peace, Children’s Educational System and the Pluralistic Spiritual Centre. A Youth Club provides extracurricular activities for the community’s children.
The village operates a program to provide humanitarian assistance - mainly, but not exclusively, medical relief - for Palestinian villagers affected by the ongoing conflict. The project is conducted by NSWAS residents on a voluntary basis and is supported by donations of money and materials from Israel and abroad.
How to help
Neve Shalom/Wahat al-Salam could not conduct its educational work or continue to develop without the moral and financial support of foundations and individuals in many places. Please contact us to learn how you can help. This section also has information about volunteer work in NSWAS and internship.
