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.
