Nomination of Salaam Shalom Educational Foundation for Season of Nonviolence
Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “People fail to get along because they fear each other; they fear each other because they don't know each other; they don't know each other because they have not communicated with each other." 
Salaam Shalom Educational Foundation seeks to address the core root of violence which Martin Luther King Jr. believed came from the lack of capacity for communication and listening. Situated in Los Angeles, Salaam Shalom co-sponsors peace education schools in the Middle East while participating in, and leading a number of projects for peace locally.   Salaam Shalom Educational Foundation promotes a paradigm for peace based on the power of innovative educational methods and a heart-based form of communication known on the Way of Council.  The Way of Council is form of community building/contemplative group communication based on four simple tenets:
  1. Speak from the heart.
  2. Listen from the heart.
  3. Be spontaneous.
  4. Be lean in your speech.
 Salaam Shalom Educational Foundation has:
-hosted  interfaith BE THE PEACE Walks which are silent meditational walks in the Santa Monica Mountains followed by the Way of Council.
-helped dispel myths in Los Angeles that there will never be peace in the Middle East by arranging a series of Los Angeles joint appearances by a pair of their peace education teachers from Israel - one Jewish and one Arab - are who championing peace in the MIddle East.
  • Hosted the Southern California BioRegional Gathering of thirty southland Interfaith and Peace Groups 
-taught the Golden Rule as a universal principle in all major religions to school children.

Great effort, Andrea. I'd love to hear more about the activities of the SSE-Foundation. I think the consequences of chronic stress in conflict areas are greatly underestimated.

Do you have working experience in Sderot?
