Simon Cowell Makes Major Pledge to IDF at Haim Saban’s $20 Million LA Fundraiser
British music and television producer Simon Cowell has reconnected with his Jewish roots, pledging a large donation to the IDF...media executive Haim Saban, creator of television’s Power Rangers, who pledged to donate $1 million if Cowell would accompany him in singing the show’s theme song, “Go, Go Power Rangers,” the Jewish Chronicle reported. Cowell began to sing, but then said he would make a donation if Saban allowed him to stop.
Last year Cowell told an audience at a similar Jewish non-profit fundraising dinner, in Britain, “My dad is Jewish. He never told me or my brother or his wife. It’s in my blood and drew me to the charity.”
Cowell’s paternal grandmother was Jewish and immigrated to the UK from Poland.
