Rabbi Philip (Shragah Phyvle) Rosensweig was born in Toronto to Meyer Rosensweig and Mary Rosensweig (née Naftolin), who had emigrated from Poland and Russia. As a young man, Philip studied at Yeshiva University in New York City, then the Jewish Theological Seminary in Toronto. There, he was privileged to study under Rabbi Avrum A. Price, one of the world’s leading talmudic scholars. Rabbi Rosensweig married Gitel Flicht of Toronto in 1953. Soon after, he was invited to serve as rabbi for Beth Jacob Synagogue in Kitchener. There, he and Gitel raised five children: Etta, Chavi, Naomi, Leah and Avrum. The rabbi was actively involved in congregation and community activities. He established the B’nai B’rith Hillel Foundation at the Waterloo Lutheran University (Wilfred Laurier University); visited Jewish inmates at local prisons, counseling them and advocating on their behalf for kosher food; he gave tours of the synagogue to visitors, and frequently addressed high school and university students, service clubs, churches and community groups. As well, the rabbi served for decades as principal and teacher at the Talmud Torah. Rabbi Rosensweig died suddenly on 27 October 1989 of a heart attack. He was buried in the family plot at Beth Shemesh in Israel, a special cemetery for rabbis and their families.

They included: Charles, Joseph, Etta, Peter, Isadore, and WIlliam. He arrived penniless and earned a living as a peddler. The family lived in the east end of Toronto at 34 Gerard Street.
Zelick founded Z. Wagman & Sons and Toronto Cadmium Plating. Joseph took over his father's business. Charles became a supplier of electrical products, establishing Revere Electric. William and Isadore in turn ran Industrial Wire & Cable and owned the Fashion Building on Spadina Avenue. Finally, Peter owned his own business called P. Wagman & Sons and later Junior Maid Garment Company.
The family became extremely successful over the years. They also were very active in the Jewish community. Zelick was one of the founders of the Henry Street Synagogue, Beth Jacob. William was the co-founder of the YMHA and the Talmud Torah. His brother Joseph was also involved in many Jewish organizations such as Mount Sinai Hospital, Baycrest and the Primrose Club. Joseph and his wife Minnie were also major philanthropists, funding the Joseph E. and Minnie Wagman Centre at Baycrest.
