A foundation currently being established by casino and resort mogul Sheldon G. Adelson promises to change the face of Jewish philanthropy. The new entity will be a major boon to American and Israeli causes, with a pledge to dole out more than $200 million dollars to Jewish causes annually - the largest-ever pledge by a Jewish foundation. The creation of the foundation comes on the heels of the announcement in October by Adelson and his wife Miriam, an Israeli physician, to give $25 million to Yad Vashem - the largest donation received by the Holocaust museum in Jerusalem by a single donor. The Adelsons, who live in Las Vegas, are also funding the construction of Las Vegas' first Jewish high school, scheduled to open in fall 2008.
In 2014, he and two other billionaires (BIll Gates and Warren Buffett) wrote an opinion article advocating immigration reform allowing more highly skilled and wealthy immigrants but also being supportive of a bill that "included a sensible plan that would have allowed illegal residents to obtain citizenship, though only after they had earned the right to do so."
