Review for American Friends of Neve Shalom-Wahat Al-Salam, Sherman Oaks, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Neve Shalom/Wahat al-Salam – the Oasis of Peace in Israel, serves as a model and a beacon to the world that with understanding, peace is possible. This unique village maintains the first school of its kind where children have a chance to learn what it means to respect each other, understand each other’s histories, and celebrate each other’s holidays. Their dialogue programs provide forums for journalists, attorneys, professors, and many other professionals from all parts of the world to address issues of conflict. These and scores of other unique programs would not be possible without the support achieved through the efforts of American Friends of Neve Shalom/Wahat al-Salam. This very small staff, with the assistance of volunteer board members, has achieved outstanding financial response over the years. Despite the recent economic downturn, they are maintaining contact with donors and educating new groups of potential supporters throughout the United States. Through these efforts, American Friends of Neve Shalom/Wahat al-Salam anticipates continued and future financial support.
