Oasis of Peace UK supports Jewish and Palestinian Israeli citizens living together in peace.

Challenging extremism

Promoting diversity, dialogue, education, shared citizenship

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.
