Oasis of peace: Wahat al-Salam Neve Shalom

I met a lady for coffee at a Tim Hortons, she was interested in joining Elder Service Corps (a community capacity building program, for elders who are interested in life long learning and community service). This coffee meeting turned into a two hour conversation. She had lived in Israel for over 30 years, and was one of the very first people who helped plant the olive trees of this community/village of peace:

What a beautiful story(ies) she had, and I was invited to a small group gathering here in Calgary, the Canadian friends of Wahat al-Salam Neve Shalom, who want to bring greater awareness of this wonderful community in Israel.
