The new owner of Maccabi Tel Aviv is the billionaire Alex Schneider, who is close to the community’s rabbi of Russia in Ontario, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Salzman.
The front page article in the sports supplement of the popular and leading newspaper in Israel, Yedioth Ahronoth, today (Tuesday) deals with the identity of billionaire Alex Schneider , who last night acquired the Maccabi Tel Aviv football team.
Schneider, whose fortune is estimated at $4 billion, was born in St. Petersburg, Russia, and immigrated to Israel with his family when he was 4 years old. They lived in the country for a few years and later moved to Canada.
Over more than half of the page, a picture of Schneider was printed with a Chabad emissary and rabbi of the community for Russians in Ontario, Rabbi Yosef Yitzhak Salzman , who Schneider serves as president, alongside the American Jewish billionaire Ronald Trump .
The article stated that “Schneider serves as president of the Kabbalah of Russian immigrants in Ontario, which is led by a Chabad emissary, Rabbi Yosef-Yitzchak Salzman.”
