The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMUNITY NEWS - BY JOHN FISHER

Rivkah Grant and the hosts

tal health was dis­cussed by Liz Jes­sel, Jami’s head of de­vel­op­ment.

“Our vi­sion should be of a Jewish com­mu­nity which ac­cepts and un­der­stands men­tal ill­ness and is able to recog­nise and sup­port some­one in dis­tress,” she said.

“With Jami’s help, we can build a re­silient com­mu­nity that recog­nises that pre­ven­tion and early in­ter­ven­tion are key in­di­ca­tors of pos­i­tive men­tal health and re­cov­ery.”

Daniela Pears, Su­san Kahn, Susie Olins, Sarah Kaye and Aly Mosheim were the brunch hosts.

THE CHIEF ex­ec­u­tive of Leeds City Coun­cil has praised lo­cal Jews for their “ab­so­lutely fan­tas­tic” char­ity work.

Tom Rior­dan was ad­dress­ing the UK Is­rael Busi­ness break­fast club, dis­cussing chal­lenges the city faces in a num­ber of ar­eas.

He said UK Is­rael Busi­ness north-east di­rec­tor Colin Glass was “one of the hard­est work­ing and most gen­er­ous of busi­ness peo­ple, giv­ing his time and men­tor­ing across a wide range of busi­nesses in York­shire and be­yond”.

Mr Rior­dan went on to ac­knowl­edge the Ziff fam­ily’s phi­lan­thropy, which had made “such a fan­tas­tic con­tri­bu­tion to this city”.

Ben Ziff gave a talk about a re­cent visit to Is­rael to ex­pe­ri­ence its “mes­meris­ing tech­nol­ogy”.
