Standing your ground in a world where people are continuously swayed into adopting the opinions and perception of the masses is never easy but Adam Milstein a well-known philanthropist is sufficient proof that it is possible to do so. Ever since he was a mere teenager, Adam has always shown support to his motherland Israel and does whatever he can in his might to change the negative perception that most people have towards Israel and the Jews. For instance, at the tender age of nineteen years, Adam took a risky move of fighting for Israel during the War of independence in 1948 as a combat sailor. He again took the initiative of fighting for his motherland in 1973 during the Yomi Kippur war.
Even though he left Israeli in 1981, four decades later, Adam’s incredible loyalty towards the Jewish community is still evident in everything he does. For instance, he is an author for the Times of Israel and regularly writes about matters pertaining his community and Israel as a nation.
His recent article discusses challenges that faced Israel in the past and how the leaders back then helped the Jews to overcome them. He gives an example of how leaders such as David Ben-Gurion, Chaim Weizmann, Golda Meir, Henrietta Szold, Mordechai Anielewicz, Peter Bergson and Colonel Mickey Marcus helped lay the foundation for the next generation of Jewish leaders by tirelessly fighting for Israel. Each one of this leaders achieved milestones in alleviating antisemitism setting an ideal example for the upcoming set of Jewish game changers.
Adam Milstein is certain that the future of Jews and the state of Israel is bright because he comes across budding leaders every day as goes about his pro-Israel philanthropic activities. As a leader, Adam Milstein sees the passion and innovativeness in them and knows that they have what it takes to take on the challenges ahead of them and help lead the community against antisemitism. That is why he encourages Jews in America to identify and empower them by offering them the platforms and tools that they need to succeed in what lies ahead.
He, however, acknowledges that it will not be easy for this set of leaders to achieve their goals because there are many hurdles that will come their way. For instance, he gives the example of the recent Boycott divestment and sanctions campaign which aims at bringing down the living bridge between Jews in the diaspora and those in Israel in a bid to destroy the state of Israel. He also adds that this set of leaders will be ridiculed, isolated and will have to make tough choices which is why it is necessary that the other Jews offer them support. Doing so not only guarantees Israel a brighter future but also the global Jewish community.
