שבשעת פטירתו של אדם אין מלוין לו לאדם לא כסף ולא זהב ולא אבנים טובות ומרגליות, אלא תורה ומעשים טובים בלבד — [at the time of a man’s passing from this world, neither silver nor gold … accompany him, but only Torah knowledge and good deeds — Pirkei Avos 6:9]

Sheldon Adelson, the billionaire casino magnate who made prolific donations to right-wing politicians and causes in the United States and Israel, was laid to rest in Jerusalem on Friday.

Adelson, a key supporter of President Donald Trump, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and other right-wingers, died this week at the age of 87 after a long illness.

The chairman and CEO of the Las Vegas Sands built a worldwide casino empire. Forbes ranked him the 19th wealthiest person in the U.S., worth an estimated $29.8 billion.

Netanyahu was at the airport late Thursday for the arrival of the Niftar, which was draped with American and Israeli flags. Adelson was buried at Har Hazeisim in a small, private Levaya.

Netanyahu, in one of a string of effusive eulogies by Israeli leaders, called Adelson “an incredible champion of the Jewish people, the Jewish state and the alliance between Israel and America.”
