He is also the National Chairman of the Israeli-American Council (IAC), and he supports a wide range of organizations that serve to make the world a better place for the people of Israel as well as Jews all around the world. He was born in Israel and earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business and Economics from Technion-Israel Institute of Technology. He moved to the United States in 1981 and went on to receive his MBA while studying at USC.
Adam Milstein believes that Jewish people, in today’s world, need better leadership; the kind of leadership that helps people to get through the obstacles of the day. While it is true that many leaders have to deal with being isolated and ridiculed, what they do to inspire people can change the world. In the past, Israel and the Jewish community have had plenty of great leaders to choose from. The original leaders of the Jewish state of Israel worked very hard to create a solid foundation for the budding state. During World War II, many great leaders stepped forward, and one of these included Mordechai Anielewicz who inspired the Jewish people to not back down from the Nazis in the Warsaw Ghetto.
Adam Milstein is pointing out that today the state of Israel and its people are in danger of being eradicated from hate groups and campaigns like the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign. Adam Milstein knows that with all of the hate and division that is being put out into the world, it is important to have strong leaders that can remain stable during times of great friction. In his daily work as a philanthropist, he meets with many of the upcoming, potential future leaders of Israel, and he also works to support the Jewish American community so they can also support their heroes and leaders.
In today’s divided world, people like Adam Milstein are doing their best to create the kind of environment where the Jewish leaders of tomorrow can make an impact.
