Israelis On Forbes Billionaire List
Certainly there’s many Jews on the list – from Michael Bloomberg to Ira Rennert. But there’s also many entrepreneur Jews who didn’t make the list, whether Ron Hershco or Joe Moinian. But 17 Israelis have been named Billionaires – “the richest people on the planet.” The richest Israeli list includes Idan Ofer, Eyal Ofer, Stef Wertheimer (who sold Iscar to Warren Buffett).
Shari Arison of Carnival Cruise Line is on the list – and so too is major philanthropist Lev Leviev, who owns real estate and much much more. Teddy Sagi, the gambling mogul continues to appear on the list as a billionaire as does Checkpoint founder, Gil Shwed.
There is many more – but 17 Israelis for a country 65 years old aint too shabby.
