Ambassador Mark Regev met with Clive Lewis, Norwich South Labour MP, members of the Norwich Hebrew Congregation and the Norwich Liberal Jewish Community at the Norwich Synagogue in the Earlham Road.

In a question and answer session, Mr Regev talked about Israel and the economics and politics of the Middle East.

Annie Henriques, chairwoman of the Norwich Liberal Jewish Community, said: 'I think for me the nice thing about it was that both the communities met with him.'

She said while there were places different communities did not get along 'in our little city of Norwich the liberal and traditional communities came together'.
