Nes Ammim is a Christian ecumenical village situated in the western Galilee which offers a unique resident-study program of Judaism and Jewish-Christian relations.
Nes Ammim is a small village located in the Western Galilee, not far from the ancient port city of Akko.
Dutch, German and Swiss Christians who wished to show solidarity with the Jewish People, founded it in the early 1960s. They hoped to contribute economically to the Jewish state, while fostering mutual respect and understanding.
The name "Nes Ammim" was taken from Isaiah 11:10, and means a 'banner of the peoples'. The idea of Nes Ammim was to renew and deepen the relationship with the Jewish people and to remind Christians that the Jewish interpretation of the Scriptures is as valid as their own.
Nes Ammim is a microcosm of cross-cultural learning, a visitor can experience life in Israel, while witnessing first-hand the development of coexistence and co-operation."
Nes Ammim's strictly kosher guest house attracts both local tourists and Christian tourists from all over the world. Seminars on Christian-Jewish relations and on early Christianity in the Galilee are run regularly.
For those who are interested to experience Nes Ammim for a longer time, there is an option to spend a year or more in the village as full members of the community, while working in the village as well as participating in the study courses that are offered. Nes Ammim has long-and short-term residents ranging from 19 - 80 years of age. Young children receive excellent day care in the village, and when they reach school age, they attend a primary school in nearby Moshav Regba, and secondary school in Kibbutz Kabri.
Nes Ammim will always be the special relationship between Christianity and its older brother Judaism and perhaps also help to facilitate contacts between different communities in Israel. Nes Ammim already holds Jewish-Arab summer camps and seminars and hope that it may serve as a model of good-neighbourly relations."
When guests visit Nes Ammim we offer the possibility of a lecture about the village. During the lecture we explain about the history of Nes Ammim, its ideology and Nes Ammim at present. The lecture can be combined with a tour through the village. This includes a visit to the so-called museum bus. In this museum an exhibition is displayed concerning the history of Nes Ammim, including pictures, objects and the bus, which accommodated the first pioneers of Nes Ammim. Furthermore the tour involves a visit to the House of Prayer and Study and the Childrens Forest. Additionally we provide information material concerning the idea of Nes Ammim and the exhibition On The Way- To a new relationship between Christians and Jews. It presents the new attitude in the fields of Christian theological doctrine, liturgy and education towards Judaism in Europe after the Second World War.
