11th Annual JCCNS International Jewish Film Festival, Generously sponsored by Sharon and Howard Rich & Leslie and Bob Ogan


In the 1970s, a group of dreamers embarked on a utopian experiment, giving birth to Neve Shalom—a village envisioned as a model of harmonious coexistence between Arabs and Jews. Despite their noble aspirations, this community found itself entangled in internal conflicts and beset by external challenges that put their revolutionary vision to the test. This documentary delves into the experiences of the children who came of age in this extraordinary setting, and how they now, as adults, grapple with the harsh realities of political turmoil, war, and societal segregation. Through their personal stories, Children of Peace seeks to scrutinize whether Neve Shalom indeed offered a genuine opportunity for peaceful coexistence or if it was, ultimately, nothing more than a social experiment.

Special guest, Deborah Nathan, Executive Director of ArtsBridge, will introduce the film.
