One of the better congregations
Auckland is one of the better functioning Progressive congregations, with sound systems and modern approaches to governance, Rob Bernstein told the June meeting of the Beth Shalom board.
He has recently returned from attending the Union of Progressive Judaism presidents’ conference in Surfers Paradise.
“Many Australian congregations struggle to raise their membership numbers, and outside the main centres few have full time rabbis,” he said. “Our numbers have been slowly but consistently rising”
The conference provided an excellent opportunity to connect and share with other presidents, he said.
