Sukkat Shalom is run by a Council (Membership) which meets regularly and is open to all Members. A copy of our Constitution can be downloaded here or may be obtained from the Secretary. The constitution specifies three officials (Chairperson, Treasurer and Secretary) and a Council of up to fifteen members. The Council delegates much of its work to sub-committees, which can enlist the help of Community Members not on the Council. This allows us maximum flexibility to devolve the running of the Community to its Members and to appoint others to take on responsibilities not listed in the Constitution. If you are logged in, you can see minutes of past Council meetings and AGMs.
Much of Sukkot Shalom’s business is conducted by its members in this way. In particular, the Religious Affairs Committee organises our services. Other current (2012) sub-committees are Membership, Newsletter, Security, Social Action, Community Liaison/Scottish Council of Jewish Communities, Cheder, Premises, Young People, Burials and Interfaith Liaison.
We have recently applied to become a Scottish Incorporated Charitable Organisation. This does not change our day to day position, but it has several advantages in terms of our legal status. Our application has been successful and our consitution, originally agreed in 2004 and most recently amended in 2012 can be accessed here.
We have now started to publish our annual reports to the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator here these include our annual accounts. The links to them are below:-
