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.
In the light of the Prime Minister’s statement and advice that we have been given we are suspending all shul activities in the building immediately. We do this with the greatest of regret but feel that we have no option. All face to face services will cease.
We have put in place a range of “virtual” provisions utilising suitable accessible technology.
Cheder classes at shul will be run virtually until further notice.
All additional activities for children and teens will also be run virtually.
