Emma Snyder Samuels is the Co-Chair of TribeFest 2014. She has served as a lay leader for Boston’s Combined Jewish Philanthropies for the past 12 years, including involvement in the Young Leadership Division and CJP’s Women’s Philanthropy. She received Boston's Young Leadership Award in 2011, and is an active member of JFNA's National Young Leadership Cabinet. Emma was recently selected as a member of the inaugural class of Chai in the Hub, the top 18 most influential young adults making a difference in the Boston Jewish community. Emma loves (not necessarily in this order): cooking, Baptiste Yoga, being a mom, the inspiration she gets from the people in her world, a nice glass of red wine, and most things Jewish.
