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.

(Lisa Saffron writes…)
“True to our mission, Radio Salaam Shalom brings Jews and Muslims together to celebrate, debate and share issues that shape our daily lives.
“One of the questions we use to start a dialogue is “What are you most proud of about being Jewish or Muslim?” For me the answer is clear – I’m most proud of my Jewish community’s acceptance of my lesbian sexuality.
“Now sexuality is a topic we’ve never covered in our 3 years of broadcasting so I wasn’t sure what kind of dialogue we’d have if I mentioned the L word. Four people representing the 3 Abrahamic faiths gathered in the Salaam Shalom studio to listen to Rabbi Elizabeth Tikvah Sarah (Brighton & Hove Liberal Synagogue) and to take part in a stimulating and lively dialogue”.
