Reaching NSWAS
From Jerusalem:
- Take the Tel Aviv - Jerusalem Highway (No. 1) in the direction of Tel Aviv and exit (from the right) at the Latrun Interchange. From the exit road turn left in direction of Beer Sheba, and then proceed as described in point 3 above.

Reaching the Village by Taxi

Naturally it is possible to take a taxi from anywhere in the country (towns within 15-20 minutes of the village are Ramle, Modiin and Beit Shemesh). If the driver is not familiar with Neve Shalom / Wahat al-Salam, you can explain to her/him that it is located between the Nachson and Latroun Junctions. Tip: It is usually cheaper to hail a taxi than to order one in advance.

Reaching the Village by Bus

On Sunday to Thursday, there is a local bus service three times a day. Bus No. 24 leaves from Ramle Central Bus Station for Neve Shalom at 8:15 AM, 12:00 PM and 6:15 PM. On Fridays, there is only one bus, at 8:15 AM.
For information about reaching Ramle by bus, please consult the web site of the Egged Bus Company (http://egged.co.il/Eng/).
For information about reaching Ramle by train, please consult the web site of Israel Railways (http://www.israrail.org.il/english/).
