From Jacob Berkman at JTA:

Jerome Fisher, the owner of Nine West shoes, who reportedly lost $150 million through investments in Bernard Madoff, gave heavily to the Israel Museum, according to the latest 990 tax form for his foundation.

The Jerome and Anne C. Fisher Charitable Foundation gave $226,228 to the museum in 2006. The Fishers sponsor the museum’s directorship, which is now held by James S. Snyder.

The Fishers also gave $5,000 to the American Friends of the Magen David Adom, Israel’s Red Cross, in 2006.

The gift to the Israel Museum was the Fishers’ second largest of 2006, as they gave $333,334 to the University of Pennsylvania that year as well.

Jerome Fisher, almost came to blows with Madoff’s chief fund raiser, Bob Jaffe, at a black-tie birthday party in Palm Beach Saturday night.
