As the black SUVs pulled up to the Harkham Hillel Hebrew Academy on West Olympic Boulevard in Beverly Hills, a star-struck reception began. More than 500 students waved miniature Israeli flags and sang “Hevenu Shalom Aleichem.”
Los Angeles educator Jason Ablin has been hired as the principal of general studies at Harkham Hillel Hebrew Academy. Ablin, who has served as the coordinator of curriculum development at Shalhevet School and as head of Milken Community High School, replaces Jeffrey Tremblay, who stepped down to pursue opportunities as a head of school. Harkham Hillel, which runs an early-childhood education enter, an elementary school and a middle school out of its Beverly Hills campus, announced the personnel changes on March 4.
