Norman Feinberg passed away on March 29 after being diagnosed with COVID-19, which complicated a pre-existing battle with pneumonia.

He founded Mannor Corporation in 1972, a tailored men’s apparel company that he led to become one of the largest privately owned companies of its kind in the United States. At its heyday, it employed more than 1,500 people.

Feinberg worked with leading brands to become a highly respected name in the New York fashion scene with his company based in the Fashion District. A generous man and Jewish philanthropist, Feinberg helped found the Albert Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia, where he lived for years, commuting to work in New York City. He was also an active supporter of the UJA-Federation of New York and various synagogues.

Feinberg sold his company in the late 1990s.

He relocated to Southeast Florida, where he enjoyed retirement with his wife of 56 years, Sondra.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by his son, Jeff Feinberg; his daughter, Michelle Rambler; five grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren.
