Sheldon Adelson, one of the great Jewish philanthropists of recent generations, will be buried tomorrow in Jerusalem — the city that has always been at the forefront of his mind, Israel Hayom. Adelson's coffin arrived in Israel three days after news broke of his death from a serious illness. "We came to a country that Sheldon loved so much," said his wife, Dr. Miriam Adelson. "It is unimaginable that he will not see it again in his eyes." Adelson's contribution to a variety of projects in Israel will leave a mark for many years — from initiatives in Birthright that brought more than a million young people to visit the country, to donations to hospitals and universities where new departments have been established and countless other charity and philanthropy projects.
