"Bar" mitzvah news: Philadelphia attorney Sayde J. Ladov -- former chancellor of the Philadelphia Bar Association -- has been elected to a three-year term of the board of the Pennsylvania Bar Institute. Ladov works for Dolchin Slotkin & Todd, P.C. ...

Sing out, Erin! Erin Frankel has been installed as the new cantor of Congregation Rodeph Shalom. ...

What's in a name? Just ask Rachel Levy Lesser, for whom the question hits home. She's just written a children's book, My Name is Rebecca Romm, Named After My Mother's Mom, inspired by her daughter Rebecca's quest to know more about being named after her grandmother. ...

Klearly klezmer is one of his key connections, but composer/trombonistDaniel Blacksberg runs the scale on talent, which is why it's really no surprise the local guy has just been named a winner of a Pew Center for Arts and Heritage fellowship. ...

David J. Adelman is the new chair of the Philadelphia Holocaust Remembrance Foundation. ...

He could have caught for anyone; but he caught for Temple. That's former Owl tight end Randy Grossman -- who went on to Super Bowl stardom with the Pittsburgh Steelers after playing for Temple's Wayne Hardin -- just named to the National Jewish Sports Hall of Fame & Museum, with installation coming next spring at its site in Commack, N.Y. ...

It's the law! Graduating Penn law student Helen Eisner was one of a select group of national honorees earning the Burton Award for Legal Achievement in writing, receiving her honor last month at the Library of Congress. The award winner clerks at the Office of Congressional Ethics. ...

July jaunts: Philly's Andy Snitzer's packed his sax for some road work, touring Europe this month with Paul Simon. Sure beats meeting Julio by the schoolyard. ...

Stand-up guy? Well, Mark Margolin's talent certainly stands up to Al Pacino and Christopher Walken, whom the Philly actor appears with in the currently being shot Stand Up Guys. ...

It was A Grand Night for Singing, indeed, as the Bucks County Playhouse just celebrated its re-opening with a ribbon cutting and performance of the show, filled with Rodgers and Hammerstein tunes -- and a celebratory appearance by Chris Hart, whose playwriting dad Moss was a Bucks County legend and playhouse stalwart. ...

The little engine that could -- and did! Joan Robbins, president of talent and co-producer at Entertainment Studios in Los Angeles, took home her first Emmy at the recent Daytime Emmy Awards for the syndicated CARS.TV. Has the hotshot gone Hollywood? Only to collect the honor; the Penn State grad and Fox 29 alum still resides in Philly.
