The Board of Management

The Board of Management is the governing body of Hendon United Synagogue which meets on average about every six weeks and serves a number of functions:


Board members have to take on a specific function within the life of the community with the aim to ensure that different parts of the community have a Board member to assist, and be present when activities are taking place.  The aim is to supplement those that are involved on a day-to-day basis with the organisation of various activities and in addition that the Board member also serves as a voice for that sector of the community at decision making level.

The range of portfolios that should be filled by members of the Board includes the following:

  • Communications
  • Hendon cares
  • Membership
  • Security
  • Premises and maintenance
