About

Our Name

 

Every organisation has a persona that identifies its calling. Ours comes from the name ‘Eli Shlama’.  

 

Our business name has a personal meaning that honours the names of the founder’s father, Elisha, and her uncle, Salam, both of whom were lost to war and cancer respectively.

 

This combination of words also brings with it a unique message: Eli is the Semitic word for ‘my God’ and Shlama is the Aramaic word for ‘peace’, creating the phrase ‘My God is peace’. 

 

Since our inception, we have focused on the name ‘Eli Shlama’ forming the foundation of the company's ethos - Peace of heart and mind, Compassion and Prosperity
