Located mid-way between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, Neve Shalom/Wahat al-Salam (meaning the "Oasis of Peace") is a community of 60 families, half Palestinian and half Jewish, all with Israeli citizenship. Democratically governed by two elected committees, the village's mission is to demonstrate that Jews and Palestinians can live together as equals.

During even the most difficult times in Israel, the residents of the village are committed to this ideal. Through their various departments and educational projects, they reach out to the surrounding communities, involving all those who want to participate in lectures, workshops, and classes that further the work of peace among Palestinians and Jews. They reach beyond their borders with the message that "Peace is Possible."
