When it comes humanitarian, and leadership skills aimed to serve the community, one outstanding individual is Mr. Adam Milstein. Mr. Milsteain serves as President and co-founder of the “Adam and Gila Milstein Foundation,” aimed at charitable and philanthropic generosities to a broad spectrum of organizations helping empower the Jewish People, the State of Israel, and strengthen U.S. – Israeli ties. Mr. Milstein’s helpful services include consulting, partnership development, and fundraising to support programs relating to Jewish education, Jewish continuity, and Pro-Israel advocacy. Mr.Adam Milstein is also National Chairman of the Israeli-American Council, as well as being a successful real-estate entrepreneur. It is fruitful to point out that the honorable Mr. Milstein has been very active in the fight against the rather hateful and sick anti-Semitic movements that have plagued our planet across centuries, cultures, and continents.
According to the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), in the last seven years alone, anti-Semitic incidents in the U.S. alone, have increased by more than 86 percent! To a large extent, movements such as BDS (Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions Movement) can be directly held responsible. In fact, when BDS strikes a community, anti-Semitism follows. For example, a recent report discovered that on 64 campuses that had a significant presence of BDS activists, 287 anti-Semitic incidents occurred; this was compared to only 198 occurrences just the prior year without such activities. Mr. Adam Milstein is a brave and caring man, educating the Jewish people that pride and courage are keys to fighting anti-Semitism. Through education of Jewish children and youth, his organizations have helped young people discover that there are many aspects of life that the Jewish community has been profoundly and positively influential on in our world.
Mr. Milstein’s philanthropic operation is quite simple. It consists of three elegant principles. First (1), Mr. Milstein and his foundation invest significant time, expertise and finances in social programs supporting the Jewish community. Second (2), his organizations positively continue engaging Jewish people at all stages of life (from childhood, up to adulthood). Finally (3), Mr. Milstein provides funding and guidance to other philanthropic organizations with a shared vision.
