 Jewish Community in Hertfordshire?Home

You’ve found one!!


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. SAMS Members can also join our busy Facebook page – click the icon on the left to join and access the page.

2015 was a very special one for SAMS. Our community was started in 1990, which means that 2015 was our 25th anniversary year. Over that relatively short period we have grown from services in front lounges of members’ houses to where we are today, at the very heart of the South Hertfordshire Jewish community. A truly phenomenal story.

Click for more information about the year and here are some stories from established and new members.

As a member of SAMS, you enjoy many ways to lead an active Jewish way of life: through education for all ages and a variety of services, activities and events throughout the year. We are a community that supports each other, reaches out to each other, worships, celebrates and learns together and helps each other lead a better life … and we have a lot of fun.

Our website tells you all about SAMS. Whether you’re a member, thinking of joining us, interested in Masorti Judaism or considering moving to the St Albans area and looking for a synagogue, please have a browse and then come along to see us in person!

Every week, our Rabbi, Rafi Kaiserblueth, provides us with inspirational words about the pasha. Click to read about Rabbi Rafi and to see his weekly words together with access to his previous publications.
