Miri an Israeli Billionaire
By Micah Halpern
Forbes published its list of billionaires and Elon Musk tops the list with $219 billon.
Miriam (Miri) Adelson hit the list at #50 with $27 billion. Miri is the widow of Sheldon Adelson, the casino magnate.
Together, Sheldon and Miri created the newspaper Israel Hayom. Miri remains owner of the Israeli paper.
Israel Hayom is the largest newspaper in Israel. It is distributed, for free, across Israel. The thinking behind the paper has always been to challenge mainstream media in Israel – media that has generally been left leaning or even extreme left.
Miri Adelson continues the tradition of philanthropy she and her husband began. Their generous support was and still is given to education in Israel, education about Israel and Jewish causes.
The Adelson’s were also very large contributors to Republican causes and candidates.
