Adam Milstein often writes articles about how young Jews can become leaders and sometimes points to historical leaders who fought to preserve Israel’s history over the years, including the Maccabees. One of the most common issues he speaks about is antisemitism which he says has quietly gained footholds in various liberal universities across the US, and he says one reason for this is because groups affiliated with Hamas and the Muslim brotherhood have infiltrated activist groups. Milstein says Jewish-Americans need to be ready to fight against these groups not only possibly in physical combat, but in using the weapons of modern journalism and informing people. He also says they should be ready to call members of congress to make sure no laws are passed that would advocate boycotting Israel.
Adam Milstein calling for Israeli-Americans to rise up against the enemies of Israel may be something he does frequently due to bearing arms as a former member of the IDF. His father had fought for Israel back in the war of independence of 1948 and he followed that same path when he became 18. After he finished his military service, he went college at the Technion Institute of Technology to complete his business training. After receiving his bachelor’s degree, he moved to the US with his wife Gila and daughters, and he completed his master’s degree at USC. Adam Milstein decided to go into real estate since it had a big chance for him to make money despite its risks. He became Managing Partner of a billion-dollar real estate firm known as Hager Pacific Properties.
Adam Milstein spends his time outside the offices of his company involved in philanthropy and campus activism groups. He cofounded the Milstein Family Foundation in 2000 which heads most of his philanthropy, and in 2007 he helped found the Israeli-American Council where he presides as Chairman. One of his favorite ways to promote Jewish activism is through videos, and he’s been a host of a video competition known as Inspired by Israel. His blogs on Jewish culture and issues have been written through the Jerusalem Post, the Times of Israle, Jewish Telegraphic Agency and Jewish News Syndicate.
