Billionaire casino magnate Sheldon Adelson and his wife, Dr. Miriam Adelson, have pledged $13 million to Birthright Israel in recognition of its bar mitzvah year.

The money is earmarked to reduce the waiting list for participants. It comes on top of a $20 million challenge grant made by the Adelsons earlier this year.

In addition to the Adelson family's gifts, the Birthright Israel Foundation campaign has raised $28 million for 2012.
