dc.description.abstractNeve Shalom/Wahat Al-Salam (the Hebrew and Arabic words for `Oasis of Peace') is a village that began as an intercultural experiment. There, Jews and Palestinians founded a community aimed at demonstrating the possibilities for living in peace - while maintaining their respective cultural heritages and languages. This paper explores the psychological, social and personal dimensions of this unique educational endeavour and draws the reader into the complex journey of Jews and Palestinians who are trying to break down barriers of fear and mistrust that have saturated their daily existence. Feuerverger explore the deep woundings and sense of victimhood that both peoples - Jews and Palestinians - feel in very different ways. This ethnography was written from the heart and it certainly offers some hope in a time of darkness. It invites us all to become fellow dreamers of peace.en
