Halal & Kosher Food

On the Leap of Faith this week, as the Vatican searches for a new Director and Deputy Director of Communications, following resignations in December, the programme looks ahead to the issues that will face their replacements we talk with Paddy Agnew in Rome and freelance journalist and contributor to the Irish Independent, Sarah McDonald. 
As parts of Belgium have recently banned the Kosher and Halal killing of animals we talk with Rabbi Zalman Lent and Sheik Dr Umar al-Quadri about the issue as a possible limit on an expression of their respective faiths.
