Wahat al-Salam - 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. When funding permits, the community conducts humanitarian aid projects including, in recent years, summer camps for children from the West Bank.

Although they are presented together here, it should be understood that these projects are quite different in terms of their size and allocated resources, while the Humanitarian aid program is conducted on a voluntary basis as an initiative of WAS-NS members.

  • Children’s Educational System

    Founded in the 1980s, our pioneering educational system provides bilingual and multicultural schooling to children from WAS-NS and the surrounding area.

  • The School for Peace

    Established in 1979, the SFP assimilates the principles upon which NSWAS was founded in conducting courses and seminars for Arab and Jewish youth and adults in Israel and the Palestinian Autonomy.

  • Humanitarian Aid

    WAS-NS has sometimes found it possible to provide humanitarian aid for medical services, in-kind donations or summer camps for Palestinians living under occupation.

  • Youth Club ("Nadi")

    A Youth Club (Nadi as-Shabibah - Moadon Noar) provides a framework, throughout the school year and during vacations, for a variety of stimulating, fun and challenging extracurricular activities for the young people of the community.

  • Peace Library

    The Fred Segal Peace and Friendship Library (est. 2010) is a large purpose-built three-story building with halls, reading and seminar rooms, audio-visual equipment and computer stations and more.
