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.

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