NEW YORK (VINnews) — Sheldon Adelson was a billionaire on the Forbe’s list of the world’s wealthiest people, and also one of the most prolific donors in conservative politics.

This past week was his Yahrzeit. We memorialize what he has done for the United States and Israel. In fact, he was one of the first super-wealthy Americans to take advantage of the Supreme Court’s Citizens United Ruling, which has created the open door to 8 and 9 figure political donations so long as the money does not go to candidates or party committees, but rather to independent Super Pacs.

For Sheldon it was not about how he made his money, but the manner in which he gave so much of it away. Together with his lovely wide, Miriam, they built an empire of charity and goodwill to benefit people throughout the world.

When Sheldon left this world on January 11th, it was a loss to all. Sheldon Adelson’s life was not just about what he did, but he set the standard for other Jews to follow in his footsteps. Being proud of one’s Jewish heritage, and unapologetic about engaging in the interests of people and Israel. May Sheldon’s memory be for a blessing.
