Mapping SAMS Roots

Following the success of SAMS Roots, our new Mapping SAMS Roots project aims to create a virtual exhibition of all our Roots.

You can listen to Helen Singer talk about the project on the audio version of our latest Newsletter.

The project will involve adult members, children from our Cheder and the SAMS B’nei Mitzvah group.

Members of the community are invited to send in two photographs connected to their family’s roots and provide the stories behind them.

These are being added to our Historypin map: see the collection grow at

We believe this project will encourage our young people to find out more about their families’ Roots, involve SAMS members of all ages, allowing us to discover the Roots of our community, will provide a showcase for SAMS and aid understanding of our diverse heritage.
