Adam Milstein has been a long and vocal supporter of his homeland, even though he left Israel in 1981, he has continued to champion his people ever since. He maintains an online presence with his writing at the Times of Israel to support his work as a co-founder of the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation. The foundation works endlessly to support pro-Israeli organizations like the Israeli-American Council (IAC), among many others.
As a member of the Jewish Diaspora, Adam Milstein is marshaling his resources to tackle the big issues facing the global, Jewish population. For Milstein, the ultimate challenge is the The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign. The campaign threatens to tear apart the Jewish community around the world, but particularly amongst American Jews, and ultimately, perhaps, destroy Israel all together.
Adam Milstein, though, is hopeful that the time has come for the next generation of Zionist leaders to step into the light, leading the charge against antisemitism, and building support for Jews across America,Israel, and the world. In his daily work, Adam Milstein sees the passion and drive in the young people, returning from their Birthright journey to the homeland with a deeper understanding of and connection to their long and tumultuous history. The hope, Milstein believes, is all around, rising in an activist generation that is bringing a message of connectivity to the Israeli-American Council, and flourishing amongst the teenage members of pro-Israel youth groups, like Tzofim and B’nei Akiva.
Adam Milstein encourages his generation, back in the homeland and from the Diaspora, to give these new voices an outlet, and a foundation, that connects the history of the Jewish people to the struggles the community still faces. Amongst these hopeful teenagers and young people, just now discovering the pride and connection with their Jewish homeland, Milstein believes the future of the movement may reside, and the next Golda Meir or David Ben-Gurion will rise.
