Adelsons Donate $50 million to Las Vegas Jewish Day Schools

By: JTA

Casino mogul Sheldon Adelson and his wife Miriam have donated $50 million to the Adelson Education Campus in Las Vegas for the benefit the campus’ three Jewish day schools, serving some 600 students ages pre-school to high school.

The Adelson campus was modeled after the RealiSchool in Haifa, which Miriam Adelson attended for 12 years.

“It was an institution that not only had high academic standards but also instilled values and friendships for life,” Miriam Adelson said in a statement announcing the gift and reported by the Las Vegas Sun.

“A school, in my opinion, should always be about more than just grades and matriculation; it should also provide children with cherished memories and roots in a community,” she stated. “I’m gratified to see that the Adelson Campus now offers those experiences to its students, giving them a sense of belonging and personal history. With this donation, my hope is that the school will continue to be a home for generations.”

“We are grateful to the Adelsons for this remarkable gift,” Paul Schiffman, head of school, said in a statement. “The Adelsons have been very closely involved in every aspect of our school, and we have benefited tremendously from their good counsel.”

    Expect an all-out obama/democratic party attack! Given the attacks against Jews at the Democratic Convention and obama's overt embracing of jihadist "superiority," we can fully expect another trip by obama to Vegas to DEMAND that a large portion of the funds be taken away from the Yeshivas and given to an equitable Muslim Brotherhood or Saudi Wahhabi run madrasah. If not, obama will be placing pressure on the IRS to withdraw the schools 501(c)(3) status.

    Dave Hart I alway appreciate how goat humped neo nazis migrate to Jewish sites to spew their venom. Must be our Democratic values, because on their own skinhead sites, they would be emasculated and made to swallow their members. But I can tell from your pic you have already done that eunuch

  9. Carol Wise says:

    LOL Arie, I see your still spewing your bull****, calling people names and showing just how ignorant you are. You are a pathetic person, you need some mental help, go get it!

  10. Arie's Pragmatic Politics says:

    Carol Wise You prove my point as to the mindset of the cult of the holy democrat: No ability to debate with any intellect so you spew venom. It's what you Anti-Jew people resort to whenever anyone promotes Judaism! Now go tend to sarah. I understand she needs changing
