Oasis of Peace UK
We support the educational programmes of the Primary School, School for Peace and Pluralistic Spiritual Centre of Neve Shalom ~ Wahat al-Salam (Hebrew and Arabic for Oasis of Peace). It is the first place where Jewish and Palestinian citizens of Israel have made a determined choice to live, work and educate their children together in the spirit of equality, respect and understanding. Dedicated to promoting peace, the Village is known far and wide for its vital educational programmes and its example of shared co-existence.
The London Mozart Trio
This is the second time The London Mozart Trio has been prepared to donate their precious time and kind efforts for the benefit of the Neve Shalom ~ Wahat al-Salam. When the trio accepted their latest new member, Sagi Hartov who happened to be Jewish Israeli, engagement with the peace village became even more poignant. Sagi Hartov explains with enthusiasm: „The Trio believes in the idea of collaboration without borders and in the concept of helping to build peace through music. Through our performance we wish to contribute to the aspirations of the village of living together in harmony and to remember and celebrate the achievement of peace in this unique place.“ The Trio stands firmly established as one of the most versatile and exciting chamber ensembles to emerge in recent years, the London Mozart Trio (formed1989) has attracted considerable critical acclaim for its many committed performances and profound musicianship. They have released a number of CDs in the UK and overseas.
Michael Morpurgo (special guest)
We are delighted that Michael Morpurgo will join us for the evening. Author of The Kites are Flying, he recently visited the Village to meet children from the Primary School, where they made kites together. After his visit he said: The more schools there are like this [Neve Shalom ~ Wahat al-Salam] the more children can meet and talk when they are young the greater chances of reconciliation.
