“THERE IS NO MORE NOBLE GESTURE THAN TO BE THE MASON THAT MIXES THE CEMENT THAT CONNECTS ONE GENERATION OF JEWS TO THE OTHER.”
Sheldon G. Adelson
We received the news about the passing of Sheldon G. Adelson with a heavy heart and great sadness. The Israeli-American Council mourns the loss of our visionary, mentor, and true friend.
Sheldon Adelson was one of the world’s leading entrepreneurs and business leaders. Together with his wife, Dr. Miriam Adelson, he was the greatest Jewish-world philanthropist of our time. He touched countless lives with his generosity, devotion, and passion for Jewish causes, and connected the younger generation to Israel.
With the foresight and support of the Adelsons, Sheldon’s vision is now alive in more than 100 communities and more than 90 campuses. He has brought Israel to the hearts of hundreds of thousands of Israeli and Jewish Americans across the nation.
Sheldon’s unequivocal love of Israel and of the Jewish people will be a legacy that will always inspire us. We will greatly miss his wisdom, leadership, and dedication and we will strive to continue to fulfill his vision in support of Israel and of the Jewish people.
We extend our deepest condolences to Dr. Miriam Adelson and the family.
May his memory be blessed.
