DHC is unusual in that all its members are automatically members of the synagogue Council that helps to run the community working alongside its elected Officers such as the Chair and Treasurer. What is even more unusual is the amazing support that the membership gives to the running of the congregation. Nearly 50% of the adult members attended the June Council meeting giving up a sunny summer Sunday morning in order to come along and not only participate in the meeting but also volunteer to take on various projects and tasks and nearly 75% had contacted the Chair to offer opinions and ideas and vote on resolutions even though they were unable to attend the actual meeting on this occasion.
An email/letter was sent on behalf of the Chair, Bess Robertson personally thanking all who had made a contribution.
Amongst matters decided by the Council were the forthcoming services for the year 5775 including the addition of some Friday night services, the re-engagement of Rabbi Borts for a further year and improvements to the fabric and facilities of the synagogue.
