We Invite You To Celebrate With Us

Thursday, April 27 at 5:30 pm
Back Bay Events Center, Boston

180 Berkeley Street, Boston

We are expecting a wonderful turnout and are close to capacity at the Back Bay Events Center. If you are interested in attending but have not signed up yet please contact


Even if you are not able to attend the event, please consider making a gift in honor of these committed leaders of our Hebrew College community. Mazal tov Louis, Susan, and Ma’ayan!



Hebrew College’s Board of Trustees welcomes you to an evening of Inspirational stories to celebrate Hebrew College’s profound impact on Jewish learning, Jewish life and Jewish leadership - past, present and future.

Hebrew College, Boston’s premier center of Jewish learning — with a 96-year history building bridges from the academy to the community — is a leading pluralistic, Jewish institution of higher education and life-long learning. We invite you to be part of the unfolding story of inheritance and innovation as we build on the past with a renewed energy and vision for the future.


We are delighted this year to honor the Grossman Family (The Grossman Companies) including Louis Grossman and Rabbi Ma’ayan Sands, Rab ‘16. The Grossman Family has been a major supporter of Hebrew College for generations both through their munificence and exemplary community leadership. Susan Ain, MAJS’11 will be the recipient of the prestigious Esther Award for Leadership and Philanthropy. Susan’s extraordinary devotion to Hebrew College, her commitment to Jewish education and her philanthropic giving have been a beacon of inspiration to our community and beyond.

Join us for Hebrew College Gala 2017, held at the Back Bay Events Center (formerly the historical John Hancock building) in Copley Square to celebrate our leadership and legacy through storytelling and musical performance.
