PODCAST 25 – INCLUSIVE EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW FEATURE: Interview with Ron Prosor

WE TALK TO RON PROSOR, ISRAEL’S AMBASSADOR TO THE UNITED KINGDOM.

In the latest of our “Inclusive Exclusive” features, four of our Jewish and Muslim team were given an exclusive opportunity to spend time with a high-profile personality whose work puts him on the Jewish/Muslim radar.

Ambassador Prosor was in Bristol for a public speaking engagement with Bristol University’s International Affairs Society. (More on that here).

Listen to our inclusive team’s conversation with the Ambassador as we shared some exclusive time together in a (very noisy) city centre hotel conference room.

Through dialogue & education sessions, broadcast media & the creative arts, Salaam Shalom aims to assist young people & people of all ages to develop awareness of their own culture & identity, alongside understanding the culture & identity of others; doing so primarily between Muslim & Jewish communities, but also between them & communities that they are a part of.

We aim to further understanding between communities so that we can help counter & prevent the development of prejudice & intolerance, which can lead to discrimination & hate-crime.
