Last updated: March 2012

Neve Shalom / Wahat al-Salam is a jointly established 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 basis for its educational work. Neve Shalom 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.
