Peace Haven

Shalom has an open space for public use — Peace Haven, a renovated former apartment located within the center.


Shalom’s chapel is the most beautiful and cherished space in Shalom’s facility.  It has central air conditioning, a sound system and flexible seating.

Completely refurbished in August 2007, the chapel’s stained glass windows date from the turn of the century. Made in Munich, Germany, they are among the finest stained glass in the world.  For more photos and descriptions, click here.
