Wahat al-Salam - Neve Shalom
The reality of Wahat al-Salam - Neve Shalom as a binational community serves as the base for its educational work. This section has articles and reports on the village’s government, infrastructure, and future development plans, some pages about community members, and a chronicle of events. Information regarding the volunteer program can be found here.
Wahat al-Salam - Neve Shalom was founded in 1970 on land leased (and later given) to it by the adjacent Monastery of Latroun. In 1977 the first family came to reside here. By 2015, about 60 families were settled in the village. The first stage of an expansion plan will bring another 34 families.
The members of Wahat al-Salam - Neve Shalom are demonstrating the possibility of coexistence between Jews and Palestinians by developing a community based on mutual acceptance, respect and cooperation.
Democratically governed and owned by its members, the community is not affiliated with any political party or movement. Wahat al-Salam - Neve Shalom gives practical expression to its vision through its various branches.
