Garden of Neve Shalom-Wahat al Salam (Israel)

A message from Neve Shalom - Wahat al Salam village

In addition to the immediate pain and fear for our loved ones, everyone in our Village is angry and saddened by this umpteenth outbreak of violence. All of our work aims to rekindle hope for a better, more equitable, peaceful, and secure future for Jews and Palestinians wherever they live. Each new outbreak of violence provides concrete testimony that we are a long way from such a future. Again we condemn violence on both sides. To our friends worldwide, our message is first and foremost to call for an immediate end to violence.
