Celebrating leadership, Jewish education and innovation, Hebrew College honored Brookline resident Rabbi Ma’ayan Sands at its annual Gala, attended by almost 350 people at the Back Bay Events Center in Boston. Sands was recognized for her leadership and commitment to Hebrew College and the Greater Boston Jewish community.
Siblings Sands and Louis Grossman, also honored at the Gala, have continued the Grossman family legacy of leadership, philanthropy and commitment both to Jewish learning and to Hebrew College.
Ma’ayan received her master’s degree in Jewish studies from Hebrew College in 1993, with certificates both in family education and pastoral care. She went on to receive rabbinic ordination from The Rabbinical School of Hebrew College in 2016 and now serves as a visiting rabbi at Congregation Mishkan Tefillah in Brookline. Sands is a published author, covering topics ranging from creating a Jewish ethical will to a children’s book, “Does God Have Ears That Really Work,” often used as a foundation to open family dialogue about children’s understanding of God. She has embraced lifelong Jewish learning and remains committed to building upon the foundation laid by the generations that came before her.
