Doumia ~ Sakinah
: The Pluralistic Spiritual Centre in Memory of Bruno Hussar, Neve Shalom ~ Wahat al-Salam
Taking its inspiration from Bruno Hussar, the Dominican brother who founded the mixed Arab - Jewish community of Neve Shalom ~ Wahat al-Salam
, the Centre provides a framework for spiritual reflection on issues at the core of the Middle East conflict and the search for its resolution. The Centre organizes a wide range of seminars, study days and conferences on issues such as religion, reconciliation, spirituality and action for social justice. Its activities are open to the general public.
The Open House
Founded in 1991 to further peace and coexistence among Israeli Arabs and Jews in this mixed city of 65,000 residents. The ratio of 53,000 Jews to 12,000 Arabs parallels the Jewish-Arab ratio in the State of Israel generally, making Ramle a microcosm of the country. The house on Klausner Street is an even smaller microcosm, for the two families who have lived there before and after 1948 represent the two nations laying claim to the land of Israel/Palestine.
has two inter-related goals: to provide educational and social opportunities to Arab children and their families through our Center for the Development of the Arab Child
; and to be a place of encounter and cooperation between Jews and Arabs in the Ramle-Lod area through our Center for Jewish-Arab Coexistence
The Children of Abraham
Children of Abraham seeks to build an international community of Muslim and Jewish youth that celebrates their religious identities. Through an engaging project involving a photographic exploration of Jewish and Muslim communities around the world, and honest, unflinching online dialogue, participants form a network of advocates and ambassadors for ground-breaking Muslim-Jewish relations in six continents.
