Eli Fellman, his spouse Liz Scanlon and their two sons, Isaac and Sam, have been DJC members for over 10 years. Both Sam and Isaac participated in the DJC Education Program from kindergarten onwards and recently had wonderful Bar Mitzvahs through the B’nei Mitzvah program at the DJC. Eli and Liz were delighted to learn about the DJC shortly after they moved into the Danforth area and appreciate the DJC’s progressive values and embrace of interfaith families.
Professionally, Eli is a lawyer with the Ontario Government and practices in the areas of administrative, landlord-tenant and human rights law. Eli has also served as an adjudicator on several different tribunals. Eli’s prior volunteer experience includes serving on the Board of Directors of a not-for-profit organization that provides translation services and on the research ethics board at a major hospital network. When not working, Eli enjoys attending theatre and cooking, especially using his smoker.
He looks forward to giving more back to the community that has given him so much joy and inclusive Yiddishkeit for the last 22 years.
