Tickets are selling fast for Epstein Hillel School’s 32nd annual gala, to be held virtually on Thursday, Oct. 22, 2020. The event features a live private performance by Broadway star Shoshana Bean. This year, Lynn resident Bob Goldman is being awarded the Dr. Bennett I. Solomon Community Leadership Award based upon his lifelong commitment to Hillel and his outstanding philanthropy to the Jewish community in the North Shore. 

Bob loves introducing everyone to his husband, José Paiva Goldman, and his sons, Sam (‘06) and Asher (‘08) Goldman. Both boys graduated from Epstein Hillel School back in the Cohen Hillel days and continued their wonderful academic lives at Marblehead High School and Northwestern University. Bob and José are equally proud of their daughter, Camila Paiva, a talented singer-songwriter, and they are actively helping to raise Camila’s son, Godric. Bob was a long-time board member, past president and now trustee of Hillel.

After a long career at large law firms, Bob opened his own law office in Salem in 2012. Bob has practiced for 34 years in tax and estate planning, concentrating on sophisticated wealth transfer strategies. Bob often serves as a trustee for his clients’ family trusts. An important part of Bob’s law practice involves advising donors on charities for tax and strategic planning, and he also advises charitable organizations on the same issues. An engagement of which Bob is very proud was his representation of the Jewish Federation of the North Shore in its merger with Combined Jewish Philanthropies. Bob is a fellow of the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel.

Bob and José are volunteers for The Haven Project, cooking dinners for unsupervised youth and hosting several of them in their home for three-month stints of transitional housing. Bob currently serves as a trustee of the Essex County Community Foundation and is a recent past board member of North Shore Alliance for GLBTQ Youth, where he remains active, raising funds by humiliating himself running eight-mile Tough Mudder races. Along with his former wife, Barbara Goldman, he is the founder and a booster of Friends of Yemin Orde (now Impact Israel), supporting youth villages and support organizations in Israel. 

Gala tickets are available at many price points and most include a gift bag with sweets and sips to be delivered to your door. The highest ticket level includes a private Zoom Q&A with Shoshana Bean. Don’t miss the exciting opportunity to honor Bob Goldman and support Epstein Hillel School and its students.
