Immigrants Of The Week: Zygi Wilf and Dave Matthews

by Greg Siskind

IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: ZYGI WILF - NFL TEAM OWNER

Born in Germany to Holocaust survivors who immigrated in the 1950s, Minnesota Vikings owner Zygi Wilfis certainly has lived the American dream. His parents were amongst the very first beneficiaries of the US refugee admissions policy enacted in the wake of World War II and the Wilfs were able to start their lives again and build a highly successful real estate business. Zygi Wilf had an opportunity to buy a piece of the New York Jets nearly 40 years ago and passed, but when he had the chance again recently, he went for it. Mr. Wilf is also a major philanthropist. He donates more than ten million dollars every year to a variety of causes.

I was rooting for the Vikings to win tonight and go on to the Super Bowl (I've got a bunch of Minneapolis family ties), but expect that Mr. Wilf is still pretty elated with the great season his team had this year.
