Green Building Consultant, SK Collaborative | Real Estate
Samantha is Jewish and a native Atlantan, a somewhat rare and unique occurrence.
Growing up Samantha had an actively Conservative Jewish household, forming her Jewish identity early on at religious day school. In college she joined the Jewish sorority on campus, but found fulfillment in Shabbat dinners, cooking classes and holiday services at the Chabad across the street, and Jewish classes at a local Rabbi’s house.
After graduating college and a brief internship in Costa Rica, Samantha returned to Atlanta to be close to family and get started on a career dedicated to environmental stewardship. She was introduced to the Moishe House organization and was enthralled by its structure and goals, forming the second Moishe House in Atlanta in 2015 which continues to serve the Jewish community.
Samantha's parents were slowly getting more involved in the InTown Chabad. Her father introduced her to the community at a lively Sukkah party at the Rabbi’s house, and that is where she found her community in Atlanta. She now lives down the street from InTown Chabad and loves the beauty of being able to walk to shul once again!
Samantha has been involved in Chabad Young Professionals events, learning, the mentorship program and the board. She is constantly inspired by the Rabbis’ (plural) energy and creativity that helps make InTown Chabad an amazing community.
