Conditonal sum


I am new to mathematica and could really need a tip on how to implement a 
conditional sum.  Pseudocode would be something like this


EndSum=a;
if j in Sm:
	EndSum=EndSum+f[j]
end


I have tried doing this by using an If-clause inside the sum-function, but  

this seems little elegant and is nor very suitable for symbolic calculations.

Any advice would be highly appreciated
