The Power of Barry Sharman:
Canadian magazine noted his worth, estimated at 4.7 billion Canadian dollars and he is the 15th richest person in the world. But the Shermans have not displayed their wealth. Recently, they put up their house for sale for 6.9 million Canadian dollars ($5.4 million). However, the home is modest for a billionaire.
The Sherman family enter into the list of philanthropists, and their death shocked high society of Canada and the Jewish community of the country. The couple has donated multibillion dollars to hospitals, schools, and charities. Even they have buildings in their honor. Indeed, they hosted Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at a Liberal Party fundraiser in 2015.
Honey Sherman was part of many boards of civic groups. She headed Mount Sinai’s Women’s Auxiliary, the Simon Wiesenthal Center and the International American Joint Distribution Committee.
A close friend of the couple, Linda Frum said the couple was kindest and beloved members of a Jewish community. Barry Sherman faced few legal actions from family members.
