    With great sadness we regret to inform you of the passing of Jewish-American philanthropist Sheldon Adelson, OB”M, he passed away this morning, Tuesday, at the age of 87.

    It is with unbearable pain that I announce the death of my husband, Sheldon G. Adelson, of complications from a long illness,” his wife Miriam Adelson stated.

    Adelson was a strong supporter of Israel and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu‏‏ and generously donated to countless Israeli and Jewish causes. He was also a strong supporter of President Donald Trump.

    According to a statement by the Las Vegas Sands company, Adelson died from complications related to treatment for non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.

    “When the pandemic disrupted daily routines and dramatically impacted his business, Mr. Adelson was adamant that our Team Members across the globe continue to receive full pay and health care benefits even while the buildings in which they worked were closed,” the company stated.

    “There are countless additional untold stories of his warmth and generosity – efforts for which he never sought recognition or publicity and would only reply with a smile if asked about them.”

    The son of a cab driver, Adelson, born in 1933, was hugely successful in the business world and eventually became one of the biggest Jewish philanthropists in the world as well as an influential Republican donor.

    Adelson was born and grew up in the Dorchester neighborhood of Boston, the son of Sarah (née Tonkin) and Arthur Adelson. His father’s family was of Ukrainian Jewish and Lithuanian Jewish ancestry and his mother, who ran a knitting shop, was an immigrant from England.

    Adelson, as the son a poor immigrant family, once said that “it went without saying that we were Democrats,” adding that his family was loyal to the Democratic party due to their commitment to charity, self-reliance, and accountability, as well as support for Jewish causes.

    Adelson later became a Republican, and in a 2012 Wall Street Journal op-ed titled “I Didn’t Leave the Democrats. They Left me,” Adelson specified three reasons why he switched political parties to the Republicans. First, he cited foreign policy, pointing to a Gallup poll that suggests Republicans are more supportive of Israel than Democrats. Second, he cited statistics that suggest Republicans are more charitable than Democrats. Third, he claimed that the Democratic party’s economic policies failed to deliver on their promises of social justice.

    He will be buried in Israel, Kan News reported.
