Jill Bernhardt Goldstone
Don't know about egg rolls, but this Goldstone is on a roll of her own: Jill Bernhardt Goldstone, who headed up Hadassah of Greater Philadelphia, has been voted in for a three-year term to Hadassah's national board. She's also serving as chair of captains for the org's 2012 national convention in Jerusalem, and major gifts chair for Philadelphia Women's Board of Israel Bonds. ...

Count on Philly native Martin Berman-Gorvine to come up with a thriller, which he has done with 36. The new novel, arriving the end of this month, makes book on the tale of the legendary 36 righteous men of Jewish teaching who have the fate of the world in their hands. But what happens when they mysteriously disappear one by one? Take a read for yourself. ...

Drexel U.'s Mimi Sheller, director of the school's Center for Mobilities Research and Policy, has just returned from Japan, where she studied, as part of an elite worldwide team, lessons to be learned from Japan's 2011 earthquake. ...


To "Stars," No. 4 will always mean Gene Mauch, the late, great, incomparable (and controversial) Phillies manager whose quest for a pennant here came up, uh, Short. But for Sixers fans, that number figures to rekindle memories of Dolph Shayes, the team's respected former coach/player whose two-handed set shots set him apart from many other B-ball stars. The still-thriving Shayes has just been named one of the Top 10 Syracuse Nationals and Philadelphia 76ers of All Time by bleacherreport.com. ...

Edison has a flash of light all its own: The Jersey town's Joshua Ull has been voted in as president of USY International. ...

Gettin' on board: Bonnie Freundlich, Morris Gocial, Rachel Berman and Fred Strober are new additions to the American Jewish Committee board. ...

Let's Pretend We're Famous? No need to pretend for Sharon and Jeff Weiss; they've been named honorary producers of the show being staged this month by 1812 Productions. ...

By the time they got to Phoenix: Former Philadelphians Jay and Karen Bycer were just honored with the Jewish Arizonans on Campus Award for their support of and involvement in the org, which stresses the need for Jewish students to be involved with their religion. ...


Let's twist again like we did last summer? OK, maybe not the twist but something that still rocks. Which is what they're planning for the second annual Rockin' Docs for Diabetes Cure fun-raiser next month, again benefitting the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Heading up this local redo of Band Aid as they did before: Dr. Kenneth Einhorn and Dr. Jeremy Jaffe. On the dock for the battle of the bands are those from Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Abington Memorial Hospital, Doylestown Hospital and Einstein Healthcare Network. (Check them out at the Electric Factory on April 29, and, "Stars" kids, maybe reconsider checking into those hospitals the day of the event.)
