Jerusalem Post – Worlds Richest Jews – the Top 50

All the disadvantages required for success! By STEVE LINDE 09/08/2010

Why have some Jews been so good at making money, and using it well? Just ask Larry Ellison,who heads The Jerusalem Post’s first annual ranking of The World’s 50 Richest Jews.

Larry Ellison, the jet-setting founder and CEO of the American software giant, Oracle, announced in early August (ahead of his 66th birthday) that he would donate most of his considerable wealth to charity. Ellison, who has already given hundreds of millions of dollars to medical research and educational institutions in the US, is one of 40 American billionaires who responded to a call by Warren Buffett and Bill Gates to publicly pledge their fortunes to help those less fortunate.
