34% increase in Darlington Hebrew Congregation membership in 2013

 We may be a tiny community here in the North -East but we are a growing one. Growing in numbers and activity. In fact an astonishing 34% increase in members during 2013 a figure which does not include 4 children aged from 2 to 11.

 Nearly all the newcomers were present at the Chanukkah party held on Sunday December 1st but it was felt that they should receive a special welcome and so  our Shabbat service on Dec 14th will be a special welcome for these new members with a kiddush held in their honour.
