On a table behind which sits his gym equipment (he works out every morning — every afternoon a little shot of Crown Royal, Apple), there’s a beautiful medal — the Bernard Bloomfield Award. He’s very proud of that one.
Phil, whose family came to Canada from Poland when he was only one year old, started volunteering and charity fundraising in his 20s.
The Rosensheins have done so much for Beth Jacob they named their museum after Phil and his beloved Rose.
“I always wanted to give back,” says Phil, as we part at his front door. This is about a week after our lunch at the golf course and he’s about to get into his 2015 Lincoln (he still drives, and this model has a button to change gears).
He’ll meet Marvin, for their weekly dinner at the Dragon Court — try the garlic shrimp.
“I’ve gotten so much love.”
