This exhibition stems from the SAMS Roots and Mapping SAMS Roots projects, carried out by St Albans Masorti Synagogue (SAMS) to have a lasting record of the diverse roots of our community members. The projects gathered over 100 stories, some of which are featured in this exhibition, reflecting its universal themes.  Read about the exhibition here.
