Detroit Synagogue Leader Samantha Woll Found Murdered Outside Home

HeadlineOct 23, 2023

In Michigan, a funeral was held for Samantha Woll Sunday, the board president of a Detroit synagogue who was found stabbed to death outside her home Saturday. Forty-year-old Samantha Woll of the Isaac Agree Downtown Detroit Synagogue was found by police, who cautioned the public to not “draw any conclusions” as the killing is being investigated. Woll worked in local politics, including for Congressmember Elissa Slotkin, who said Woll “dedicated her short life to building understanding across faiths, bringing light in the face of darkness.” Woll also worked on Attorney General Dana Nessel’s reelection campaign. Nessel wrote in a tribute, “Sam truly used her faith and activism to create a better place for everyone.”
