Judi and Raymond Elias have been members here at SWESRS for almost 30 years along with their sons. Their son Joel was well known through teaching and youth leadership.  He's also well known in the area for voluntary work at Sinclair House, plus working for Aish and Jewish Care.  Joel’s wife Fiona was a student at IJPS, then King Solomon, following a while later as a member of staff there too. She was also a volunteer at Sinclair House.

Fiona is now fundraising £50K by November to cover the cost of ground breaking treatment in her fight against MS - you may have seen articles online or in the Jewish press about her fundraising efforts. She has so far raised just over £30K.
