Sheldon was a visionary business and philanthropic leader and a great supporter of Israel. He and his wife Dr. Miriam Adelson were also instrumental in helping United Hatzalah Founder and President Eli Beer during his fight with Covid-19 in March and April of 2020. Eli Beer describes Sheldon and Dr. Miriam as his “guardian angels”.

From United Hatzalah Headquarters in Jerusalem, Eli Beer said, “Sheldon was a true role model and inspiration for living life fully. He was also a proud Jewish American. In the last 200 years of history there are three people who have made a massive impact on Israel, the Jewish people and me personally: Baron Rothschild, Sir Moses Montefoire and Sheldon Adelson. We lost a giant today but I am proud to know his family and am sure they will continue his work. Baruch Dayan Haemet, may his memory be a blessing.”

Just ten days ago, Sheldon and Dr. Miriam Adelson made a significant donation to the Ambucycle unit of United Hatzalah, a donation that will strengthen the medical response to the citizens of Israel and save lives throughout the country. Sheldon was a true hero of the nation of Israel and helped change the lives of many people both in the United States, in Israel, and around the world. He will be sorely missed.
