Nes Ammim in The Jerusalem Post

'What attracted me in Nes Ammim, is the idea of living together, Jews and Arabs, in a neutral place where people come here for 50 years from all parts of the world.' Yoseph Mubarki, an Arabic educator who had ties with Nes Ammim since childhood, in The Jerusalem Post (May 2013).

Annual Report 2012

'A group of Christians that not only supported Israel and the ingathering of the Jews with words and money, but by planting their feet in this land.' That’s how a journalist summarized his opinion about Nes Ammim. And he is quite right. Although the activities of Nes Ammim have changed in five decades, from agriculture to dialogue, the aim of being a vital ecumenical-Christian community in Israel have always remained the same. Encounter, hospitality, learning and dialogue are the leading inspiration of Nes Ammim, a village that developed countless good relations with people of diverse religious and cultural backgrounds in Israel, the Galilee in particular, and abroad. The annual report reflects in particular on the year of 2012. But with the same ideology and purpose as in previous and next years: trying to be a banner - a sign of hope - in this beautiful country. Not only with words and money, but by planting our feet in this land.

 
International Conference Essen

,,Nes Ammim’s contribution to the local political dialogue in Israel is a contribution to the dialogues in our home countries and home churches regarding the political conflicts in Israel and Palestine,'' said by Rainer Stuhlmann, studyleader of Nes Ammim, during the International Conference in Essen (Germany).

The conference was organized as a jubilee event by the International Ideological Committee and titled: Dialogue as listening to both sides. Christian-Jewish and Jewish-Arab encounters in Nes Ammim. Various people from Israel, Germany and The Netherlands came to the conference to listen or to speech about dialogue in Israel and in Europe.

Stuhlmann also said: ,,In the political conflict we don’t learn from Jews in general, but we are learning from some Jews struggling for peace and justice and promoting the reconciliation process. And in the same way we are learning from Palestinians who do the same work. So Nes Ammim is not obligated to neutrality. Rather, it is being ‘caught between two stools’, with a changing position in loyalty. We advocate the rights of Palestinians without becoming enemies of Israel. And we are in solidarity with Israel if it is attacked or criticized unfairly or unreasonably." Click here if you want to read the whole speech.

Noha Khatib, member of the (Nes Ammim) Local Dialogue Committee and Minister of Education, contributed as well. She said: 'No conflict will last for ever. Let us work hard for reconciliation so that not only a next generation but also we can enjoy peaceful coexistence'.

The next jubilee event will be on the 21 of September in The Netherlands. Click here for more info.
