Communities Coordinator. In her role, she works with Jewish Day Schools and JCCs
across Chicagoland on child abuse policies and protocols, leads a variety of
abuse trainings and oversees the Safety Kid program, a child abuse prevention
workshop for children ages 4-10. When the pandemic hit, Samantha revamped their
curriculum so trainings could continue in a virtual space.
of work, she dedicates her time to her family and the Jewish community, serving
on JUF's Young Women's Board as well as the Skokie Valley Agudath Jacob
Synagogue Board. Samantha is also actively involved at her boys' school, Hillel
Torah. When there's time left in her day, she enjoys running and teaching spin.
