1922 to 1948 Charity Concert perfomances

Samuel engaged in Charity concerts throughout his performing career. He clearly has sympathies with plight of Russians (see also the Concerts for the Society for Cultural Relations 1932 ) and he supported Jewish and Zionist charities. On the home front his charity works were directed mainly towards children to include the Y.M.C.A, hospitals and orphanages.
