The Solomon and Sylvia Bronstein Seminar, an event for professional financial advisers presented by the Estate Planners Advisory Committee of the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia, will mark its 18th anniversary on Tuesday, Sept. 10, with a program on the opportunities and impact of the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012.

Beth D. Tractenberg, a partner in the NYC-headquartered law firm of Katten Muchin Rosen­man LLP, will keynote this breakfast program, which begins at 8 a.m., at The Hyatt at the Bellevue in Center City Philadelphia.

Tractenberg concentrates her practice in international and domestic estate planning, contested matters, estate administration, pre-nuptial agreements and not-for-profit organizations.

She is a Fellow of the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel and is also a member of the United Kingdom-based Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners.

Continuing education credits are available for Pennsylvania attorneys and insurance professionals and for Pennsylvania and New Jersey CPAs.

During the program, Edward M. Glickman will receive the Edward N. Polisher Award in recognition of his distinguished service to both his profession and to the Federation’s endowment programs.

Glickman, who practiced law for 46 years at Wolf Block prior to joining the Client Services Practice Group at Cozen O’Connor in 2009, focuses his practice on tax and estate planning, close­ly held business succession planning and the administration of estates and trusts.

His Federation involvement is equally impressive. He has served on the Federation Board of Trustees and its Executive Committee and, for many years, served as the chairman of Federation’s Overseas Missions program.

Glickman’s commitment to fostering the Jewish identity of young adults is evidenced by his long-term service on the Jewish Campus Activities Board.

The award was established through a bequest made by Polisher, who served as an estate planner and served as an example to his peers by exemplifying the values of integrity, leadership and service to the Jewish community.

The cost for the Sept. 10 program is $65 per person and includes the seminar, materials and breakfast.

Mark S. Blaskey, Federation Endowments Corporation President, Lawrence S. Chane, Chair of Federation’s Estate Planners Advisory Committee, and Rachel A.
