There's No Business Like Shoah Business
Indeed, the Shoah Business has been very lucrative for Marvin Heir, founder and "dean" of The Simon Weisenthal Center. His annual salary of $721,000 (not counting benefits) is 2.5% of the entire budget of his organization. It is also the 2nd highest salary of any "Jewish professional" anywhere. (Only Yeshiva University president Richard Joel makes more. But then he oversees and budget of nearly $1 billion and a staff of over 6000. The SWC by contrast has a mere $27 million budget, and 120 employees.)
Not far behind Heir, is Abe Foxman of the ADL, pulling down $625,000.
Good to see some folks have made out well from all this. Max Bialystock would be proud.
