PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Luxury shoe designer Stuart Weitzman has made a transformative gift to the National Museum of American Jewish History (NMAJH), in recognition of which, the Museum has been renamed the Weitzman National Museum of American Jewish History, or "The Weitzman".Stuart Weitzman Makes Significant Gift to National Museum of American Jewish HistoryThis gift builds on many years of prior support from Weitzman for the landmark institution on historic Independence Mall in Philadelphia and, importantly, seeds the Museum's endowment."I have been inspired by the NMAJH since my first visit in 2012," Weitzman said. "I was drawn to their iconic artifacts that demonstrate the very foundations of religious freedom in America. We are truly thrilled to be able to make this gift to the Museum and humbled that this support will help to ensure that stories of American Jewish history are told and preserved for generations to come."In 2013, Stuart Weitzman was the first person featured in the Museum's "Dreamers and Doers Speaker Series," which tells the stories of Jewish individuals who embody an entrepreneurial, philanthropic, and uniquely American spirit. In 2018, his support enabled the Museum to highlight its "First Families" Gallery which details the lives of early Jewish settlers in colonial era America.This gift also effectively concludes the quiet phase of the Museum's capital campaign, assuring the Museum's future as the preeminent national institution exploring and celebrating the intersection of American ideals and Jewish values in the birthplace of American democracy on Philadelphia's historic Independence Mall.
