Israeli Canadian businessman and philanthropist Sylvan Adams Chosen to Light Torch at Israel’s 75th Independence Day Celebration

[Winnipeg, MB] – The Israeli Canadian Council (ICC) congratulates Sylvan Adams, a Canadian-Israeli businessman, and philanthropist, on his selection as one of the 12 individuals to light the ceremonial torch at Israel’s 75th Independence Day celebration at Mount Herzl. The torch lighting ceremony symbolizes the 12 Jewish biblical tribes and is considered one of Israel’s most esteemed honors.

Transportation Minister Miri Regev notified Adams of his selection on behalf of the Public Advisory Committee. In response to the announcement, Adams expressed his gratitude and excitement, calling it the “honor of his life” to be chosen alongside exceptional citizens of Israel.

Adams, who is an immigrant, considers his selection as representative of the diaspora communities, demonstrating the unity of the nation. The ICC is proud to see a Canadian-Israeli citizen chosen for this prestigious honor.

“Mr. Adams has been a true ambassador-at-large for the State of Israel, bringing world-class cultural and sporting events to the country and showcasing its beautiful reality to large audiences worldwide,” said Ron East, President of the Israeli Canadian Council. “His dedication and contributions to the State of Israel are unparalleled, and we are delighted to see him recognized in this way.”

Among his notable accomplishments, Adams brought Lionel Messi and the Argentinian national soccer team for a friendly game in Tel Aviv, Madonna to the Eurovision Song Contest, and the French Super Cup to Tel Aviv. He also organized and hosted the largest sporting event in the country’s history, the Giro d’Italia.

The ICC extends its warmest congratulations to Sylvan Adams on this outstanding achievement and wishes him all the best as he prepares for this momentous occasion.
