Sylvan Adams (64) is a Canadian-Israeli billionaire, passionate cycling enthusiast, and major philanthropist. Adams — who dubbed himself Israel’s ‘self-appointed ambassador-at-large’ shortly after he arrived [made aliyah] in 2016 — is the co-owner of the UCI (Union Cycliste Internationale) professional cycling team, Israel-Premier Tech. He recently returned from a visit to Rwanda, where he introduced the team’s Racing for Change initiative. The project is designed to boost cycling in the country and improve the lives of thousands of Rwandan children by encouraging them to become involved in the sport.

Quote: “ ‘All the noise about constitutional battles and political divisions in Israel today pales in comparison with the good deeds and virtuousness of our people,’ says Sylvan Adams. ‘We are a force for good.’ If there is anyone in Israel who is qualified to speak about the remarkable Israeli capacity for helping others and promoting peace, it is the Canadian-born Adams who, since his aliyah, has presented the positive face of Israel to the world.”
