Perelman was born in Greensboro, North Carolina on January 1, 1943 to Raymond and Ruth Perelman. He was raised in a Jewish family. Perelman—who is thought to be a major Chabad funder—has built a tiny synagogue adjacent to his East 62nd Street townhouse. It is one-room and one-member; on Friday nights, he puts nine Hasidic men from Crown Heights up at a nearby hotel so that he can fulfill the Jewish law requiring that prayers be conducted with at least ten Jewish men. It’s mentionable that always nine Jewish men travel with him so that he is never without a minyan. He had never talked about the reason that led him to build a one member synagogue and not joining other Jewish people.
He supports Israeli causes, and is a trustee of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, the notorious pro-Israel front group with over 300,000 global members and support from prominent figures like himself, George W. Bush, Barack Obama, Senator Charles Schumer, Hillary Rodham Clinton, and many others.
