'A new day' in relations between Christians and Jews welcomed at inaugural Jerusalem Prayer Breakfast

Israeli organiser Albert Veksler made the comments at the event in Kensington on Tuesday, which was attended by both British and Israeli politicians as well as church leaders and rabbis.

It was hosted by the Pastors of KingdomFaith Church, Clive and Jane Urquart who said the event was based on a shared love for "the God of Israel" and the "miracle" of a "language, people and land resurrected by the breath of God"

Also speaking at the event, the Ambassador of Israel to the UK, Mark Regev said both nations shared a "common judeo-Christian heritage" and said he was "heartened" to "see so many proud Christian friends of Israel".

"Christians have no better friend than the state of Israel", he added.

"I ask you to continue to stand strong for the values our peoples and our nations share".

The event, which was attended by hundreds of Jewish and Christian leaders and coincided with the 70th anniversary of the modern state of Israel, was the first of its kind to be held outside of Jerusalem, although organisers hope to replicate it in other nations.
