Jewish 100: Sheldon Adelson – Philanthropy
Love or hate his politics, Adelson puts his money where his mouth is. And that mouth advocates on behalf of Jews and Israel. Adelson has made major multi-million dollar donations to The Adelson Educational Campus, Yad Vashem, Birthright Israel and The Adelson Program in Neural Repair and Rehabilitation. In 2012 he spent upwards of $100 million on Republican U.S. Presidential candidate Mitt Romney, in part because he viewed Romney as friendlier towards Israel.
