Adam Milstein goes beyond just news of what’s happening in Israel and offers his perspective on the outlook of the Jewish-American community and developments they should look out for in articles that he writes for the Times of Israel publication. In a recent blog post he talked about courage and pride as part of six different characteristics that are important for Jews and were also things that the ancient liberation group the Maccabees were known for. The Maccabees had to to invent different ways to outsmart their adversaries and today Jews are always innovating in ways that others don’t think of.
Adam Milstein explained in his article that several principles can make Jewish-Americans and Israelis stronger than ever even though Israel is a small country. He said the first is pride in what Israel stands for, and by embracing the nation and supporting it even during its shortcomings, Jews everywhere can be unified in their endeavors and come together in spite of minor differences. Milstein remarked that courage both to speak out in favor of Israel and Judaism, and possibly take up arms if necessary is also important to preserve Israel when it comes under assault both in the media, or by its enemies in the Middle East.
Adam Milstein is Israeli-born and saw the nation grow from the time Jews first began settling it in his childhood days and then became a military power when he entered the IDF in 1971. In 1973 he fought in the battles of the Yom Kippur War and during his tour also first got to know his longtime wife Gila. In the years after his service completed, Milstein completed his college education and moved to the US. His professional career has been managing and investing in luxury properties in the California, Texas and Illinois real estate markets at Hager Pacific Properties, but philanthropy has taken even higher priority for him and Gila.
Adam Milstein is the co-founder and co-chair of the Milstein Family Foundation, and the chairman and president of the Israeli-American Council. He is an active member of Hillel International and its subsidiaries, on the board o AIPAC, a trustee of the Jewish International Fund and supporter of StandWithUs. He’s also been affiliated with political activists Haim Saban and Sheldon Adelson.
