About Sheldon A. Cohen
Sheldon A. Cohen z"l was very committed to The Rashi School and founded the Grandparents Association when his grandson, Alexander, was in first grade. Sheldon wanted to create an opportunity for grandparents to be a part of the Rashi community. Sheldon’s vision was that every Rashi grandparent, near or far, could be a part of their grandchild’s Rashi experience.
Sheldon could often be found in Alexander’s classroom, participating in Kabbalat Shabbat, and always talking to his friends about Rashi. Sheldon also served on the Board of Directors of the school, as well as on many committees.
The Rashi Grandparents Association is Sheldon’s legacy. The Association was named in his memory following his passing in 2002.
