Two extraordinary leaders, writers and activists, Remona Aly and Shoshana Boyd Gelfand, talk about the issues of the moment and what it means to observe religious traditions under lockdown - Jewish or Muslim.

What's it like to celebrate Ramadan and Shavuot without a physical community? Can fasting and feasting be meaningful in isolation?

Remona is a journalist, broadcaster and commentator with a focus on faith, lifestyle and identity. She writes for The Guardian and other media outlets on anything from The Great British Bake Off to burkinis; fashion to interfaith football and Ramadan to rock music. As a commentator on TV and radio, she has appeared on Sky News, ITV and the BBC.

Rabbi Shoshana Boyd Gelfand is Director of JHub, a London-based initiative launched by Pears Foundation that offers space, resources training and development for social change organisations to work, meet and learn.
