2010, along with Ben Sauder (key­note speaker was Henry Win­kler — there’s a pic­ture of them on the wall). B’nai Brith (Phil helped start their fa­mous an­nual Sports Din­ner). The Jewish Na­tional Fund. Oth­ers.

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.”
