She spent many years teaching at Cheder and volunteering as a Madricha running spring, summer and winter camps and social events for youth movements and organisations.

She has previously spent a summer volunteering in an orphanage in Ghana and spent much time fundraising in order to rebuild their homes and schools. Sammy also spent a year teaching in Australia and travelling around New Zealand, exploring and embarking on adventures such as: bungee jumping, sky diving and scuba diving!
