Neve Shalom - Wahat al-Salam 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 NSWAS members.

  • Children’s Educational System

    Founded in the 1980s, our pioneering educational system provides bilingual and multicultural schooling to children from NSWAS 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.

  • Doumia-Sakinah: The Pluralistic Spiritual Center

    "Doumia-Sakinah", or The Pluralistic Spiritual Centre, provides a framework for spiritual reflection on issues at the core of the middle east conflict and the search for its resolution.

  • Humanitarian Aid

    When funding is available, WAS-NS provides certain limited humanitarian aid. This has usually been for the benefit of Palestinians 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.
