Tickets are selling fast for Epstein Hillel School’s 31st Annual Gala, to be held on Sunday, July 28, at the Boston Opera House with a pre-show reception at Legal Sea Foods. This year, Swampscott residents Esther and Arthur Goldberg are being awarded the Dr. Bennett I. Solomon Community Leadership Award based upon their lifelong commitment to Hillel and their outstanding philanthropy to the Jewish community in the North Shore and Greater Boston area.

Pillars of the Jewish community, Esther served as vice president for both Hadassah and Temple Israel Sisterhood and as a board member of Hillel Hebrew High School, an affiliate of Prozdor, while Arthur has held many leadership roles in the community, notably as a member of the Board of Directors, Finance Committee and Board of Trustees at Epstein Hillel School (then Cohen Hillel Academy), as well as Greater Boston chairman of Israel Bonds and president of Kernwood Country Club.


They are the proud parents of three grown children: Howard, who is married to Jennifer Stam Goldberg, the director of admissions and marketing at Epstein Hillel School; Jason, who is married to Dale Raben; and daughter Miriam. They are even prouder grandparents of Wes, Wyatt, Max, Vera and Remy.

The Gala has featured many outstanding performances and shows over the years. Some of the most memorable ones are: “The Lion King,” “The Producers” and “Wicked.” This year we are thrilled to be featuring Tony Award-winning “Dear Evan Hansen,” a musical about life and the way we live it. The New York Times calls it “a gut-punching, breathtaking knockout of a musical” and audiences agree. Don’t miss the exciting opportunity to honor the Goldbergs and support Epstein Hillel School and its students.
