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.
Our next visit is 10th-13th October 2015.
The Lords Beecham and Ahmad of Wimbledon hosted a reception at the House of Lords on Monday 16th March 2015 to meet Noam Eliasi Shuster who spoke about how growing up at Neve Shalom / Wahat al-Salam has shaped her career path.
