For over 20 years Cohen Hillel Academy has been producing an annual Gala, featuring such entertainment as Peter, Paul & Mary, Bill Cosby, The Lion King, Mandy Patinkin and Wicked. The Gala is a joyous, community-wide celebration of Hillel and the integral role the school plays in our community. Each year the Dr. Bennett I. Solomon Community Leadership Award is presented to an honoree or honorees. The award was established to honor the memory of Cohen Hillel Academy’s beloved principal, and to recognize extraordinary commitment made by individuals to our school and the community. Proceeds from the Gala enable Cohen Hillel Academy to provide an outstanding education to students on the North Shore.
