Doctor and philanthropist Miriam Adelson was honored with the Presidential Medal of Freedom—the United States’ highest civilian honor on Friday for her medical career, in addition to her stalwart support for the State of Israel and numerous Jewish causes.
“To protect the sacred heritage of the Jewish faith, Miriam and [her husband] Sheldon have supported Jewish schools, Holocaust memorial organizations and helped Jewish Americans visit the Holy Land,” said U.S. President Donald Trump.

The Adelsons donated $30 million towards the president’s 2016 campaign effort. They gave $100 million for Republican campaigns in the 2018 midterms.
