Stars of David

With the Jewish Exponent's beautiful redesign, Stars of David is feeling very bold-faced himself these days. But, as they say in certain circles, enough about me: And who better to lead off the new stars but Stewart J. Eisenberg of Eisenberg, Rothweiler, Schleifer, Weinstein & Winkler, P.C. – wonder if P.C. ever feels slighted by not having her whole name listed – who's just been named the 2005 Milton D.

That chorus of "mazel tovs" you hear is from fellow congregants at Kol Ami, where Eisenberg is a founding member/board member/capital campaign chair. … To belong to the Albert Einstein Society, do you have to meet a 10-inch wild-hairdo requirement? No, but you do have to be part of "a group of philanthropic individuals composed of community volunteers, physicians, employees, trustees and administration of Albert Einstein Healthcare Network."

The associate dean for graduate medical education and assistant prof of obstetrics and gynecology, Jefferson Medical College, is hearing huzzahs for her amazing follow-through on a long-held dream – the establishment of Nashirah: The Jewish Chorale of Greater Philadelphia, which premiered to mazel tovs and much sweet music Sunday at the Gershman Y. Silber's founding prexy of the board of directors of what is being called the only auditioned, community-based chorale in the Greater Philadelphia area that sings Jewish repertoire. … It wasn't just Billy Crystal's Sunday last week at the tony Tony Awards celebration; also taking home an award for "Billy Crystal's 700 Sundays" was Philly guy Larry Magid, as co-producer of this special theatrical event. Magid's gone from Electric Factory to electrifying Broadway. … Fore play: They're got a Cheltenham Special on the wallboard at Lee's Hoagies, but the special of the day on Aug. 22 will be in Ambler at the charity golf tournament being chaired by Jon Waxman and David Fine, the go-to guys for hoagies and stuff at Lee's of Abington and Blue Bell. The smack-that-silly-white-ball gathering will benefit the Women's Board of Abington Memorial Hospital and the Whitpain Recreation Association. As with hoagies, the same goes for golf – it's all a matter of the roll. … To Morrow, it's another day; well, maybe not just any day. Philadelphia native son Dr. Todd A. Morrow recently received the Maimonides Award of the Health Professionals Division, Metropolitan New Jersey, State of Israel Bonds. Some Jewish kids may be a pain in the neck, but not for Bernie and Jeanette Morrow, who proudly call this otolaryngologist/head and neck specialist "son." … And, finally, know what the sixth sense is? The good sense to honor these six, which is what the Jewish Theological Seminary recently did at Congregation Adath Jeshurun, in Elkins Park: Evelyn Berger received the Ner Tamid Award while Susan Lodish, Betsy and David Rentz and Janet and Alvin Schwartz were honored with the Shin Award at the JTS Philadelphia Citywide Awards Event.
