Create a place where the people of this land would live together despite national and religious differences, and who would conduct educational work for peace.


FR. BRUNO HUSSAR, who passed away on February 8, 1996, was the visionary who dreamed of and eventually established the community of NEVE SHALOM - an oasis of peace - a name he derived from the biblical quotation in the book of Isaiah (32:18) "My People shall dwell in an Oasis of Peace". The germ of the idea came to him in the '60s but its realisation evolved slowly until 1970, when he settled upon a barren hilltop loaned to him under long term lease by the Latrun Monastery.

  • Doumia-Sakinah – The Pluralistic Spiritual Center

    The Center provides a framework for personal and group reflection, study and encounter on issues at the core of the Middle East conflict and the search for its resolution. Its activities draw inspiration from local and universal spiritual sources, while not being bound by a traditional approach. The Center invites participants to identify and explore spiritual, artistic and creative tools for communications and healing. The Center facilities provide a "safe space" for many kinds of activities, with halls, a courtyard, green spaces and the dome-shaped "House of Silence" (Beit Ha Doumia/Bayt as-Sakinah). Programmes focus on open, inter-religious and inter-cultural dialogue, and the advancement of peace.
