Clifford D. Schlesinger, also an attorney and a member of the Goldman Sachs Strategic Wealth Advisory Team, was honored at the reception with the 2008 Edward N. Polisher Award.

The award, established through a bequest from Polisher to a Philadelphia-area estate-planning professional who provides distinguished service to Federation's endowment programs, recognizes Schlesinger's significant contributions to the Philadelphia Jewish community. A past president of the Federation Endowments Corporation and former vice chair of Federation's Board of Trustees, Schlesinger was the 2003 recipient of Federation's Myer and Rosaline Feinstein Young Leadership Award.

As a recipient of the Polisher Award, Schlesinger was given the ability to designate a grant from the Polisher. He chose to earmark his gift to the Philadelphia Israel Education Project.
