Greetings from the PRV-ME and events in 2014

Dear friends of the PRV-ME,
We are excited to share with you some of our plans for the year 2014.
We are grateful for the support we received in the month of the Global Campus which brought to us concrete possibilities for land for the manifestation of the vision that we have been carrying for many years. These days we are preparing intensively for the next steps of the project, in which we will move from Jerusalem to the Negev desert. We are challenged to go on while facing the unknown and many open questions, and we are also humble and grateful in front of the gates which have opened to us and to the vision of establishing a Peace Research Village in the Middle East. In this year we hope and we plan to start creating an oasis in the desert and to deepen the work of creating a real life-model for a new culture with no violence or fear. 

Please read further for the  list of events and contact us for further information. 

Have a blessed year!

Warm greetings of light,
The PRV-ME
