Adam Milstein’s Inspirational Articles Talk About Fighting For The Strength Of Israel

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.

Michael Zomber is a Man for All Seasons

Michael Zomber wears many hats and they include antique weapons and armor expert, samurai sword authority, story teller, novelist, screen play writer, film maker and philanthropist. He has a passion for all his interests and does them all equally well. He is especially passionate about his film “Soul of the Samurai.”

He and his wife support several organizations that fit with his values that include compassion, love and peaceful resolution of conflicts. Peaceful resolution seems to fly in the face of his love of antique weaponry, but as he is aware of the horrors such weaponry can bring and he also knows they have their place in history and it is important to preserve such pieces of history.

His writing credits include penning more than a dozen screen plays, historical novels and a piece of non-fiction entitled “Jesus and the Samurai.” Most of his written work is still in print. He is especially proud of the documentary he made with his wife and their company, renascent Films, LLC. His documentary, “Soul of the Samurai,” received critical acclaim and proved to be a feather in Mr. Zomber’s cap. The film is available through the Cinema Guild.

Mr. Zomber approached this documentary the same way he approaches all his passions. He worked the project from the very beginning to the final cut with attention to detail and authenticity. He researched and wrote the screenplay while coordinating and blending the talents of Samurai masters, historians and artists. He incorporated only those elements that ensured historical authenticity and took on the responsibility of the finer details of the film and they included the set design, including Japanese artwork to reflect the period of the film and the procurement of props and placement of the props that included swords and armor.

To add the perfect touch of authenticity, Mr. Zomber also worked with a Buddhist Master to make sure the film was perfect in every way. The film stands as a memorial to the preservation of the philosophy of Bushido.
