BRONSTEIN SEMINAR
Our annual Solomon and Sylvia Bronstein Seminar for Professionals is held each fall, shortly after Labor Day, as a breakfast meeting.

The seminar attracts almost 200 professionals in the wealth planning sector, including attorneys, accountants, trust officers, insurance brokers, and financial planners, to network and discuss current trends in the field of estate planning and endowments.

Attendees have the opportunity to hear experts discussing the latest developments and trends in the field, and continuing education credits are offered.

The Edward M. Polisher award is presented at the Bronstein Seminar to an estate-planning professional who has provided outstanding service to the Jewish Federation’s endowment program.

Mr. Polisher, of blessed memory, was often referred to as “the “dean of estate planning.” A Philadelphia attorney, longtime Jewish communal leader, and philanthropist, he was highly respected and known as a “true visionary.”

Mr. Polisher, who was deeply committed to the Jewish Federation’s endowment efforts, made certain that his legacy would live on in multiple ways. One of the important bequests he made was to establish an annual award for an estate-planning professional in recognition of outstanding service to the Jewish Federation’s endowment program.

Past award winners include:
