SAMS is a lively, warm and welcoming Jewish community within the Masorti movement, offering a centre for Jewish life in St Albans and the surrounding area.
“Masorti” in Hebrew means “traditional” we follow traditional customs & events. But we believe in egalitarian principles & we are open minded and accepting of members from all walks of life.
SAMS began as a small community of 3 families in 1990. Since then we have grown to nearly 400 members, with our very own Synagogue opened in 2012.
We’re pleased to announce that SAMS is holding in-person Shabbat services in a Covid-friendly format. These are open to the community via a booking app on a first-come, first-served basis.
Please also note that our regular Friday evening Kabbalat Shabbat Service on Zoom has now come to an end as the days are growing too short to allow this before Shabbat. We will now be holding Havdallah on Zoom following Shabbat.
For the moment, we’re still running all our other programming via Zoom.
If you have any comments or concerns you’d like to share, please message firstname.lastname@example.org.
