Steven Spielberg, Bon Jovi, here for fundraiser

Filmmaker Steven Spielberg is expected to tour the National Museum of American Jewish History today while in town for his USC Shoah Foundation Institute's fundraiser tonight at the Loews Hotel, honoring Comcast CEO Brian Roberts.

Spielberg's Righteous Persons Foundation donated $1 million toward the museum's construction efforts in 2008, and the Haddon Heights native whose films include "Schindler's List" also donated his first 8mm film camera to be displayed at the museum, which opened at its new home in November.
