Adelsons Pledge Additional $13m. to Birthright

In recognition of the Birthright Israel’s thirteenth “Bar Mitzvah” year, Dr. Miriam and Sheldon G. Adelson have gifted an additional $13 million to the organization. This gift follows the success of a $20 million challenge grant made by the Adelsons earlier this year.

The Birthright Israel Foundation Campaign, which is run in partnership with major Foundations and Federations around the country, along with over 25,000 individual donors, has thus far raised $28 million dollars in 2012 in addition to the gifts of the Adelson Family. Together, the Foundation will be working with donors to meet the Adelson Challenge and raise a total of $72 million in 2012.
