Adam Milstein Explains How Israeli-Americans Are Now Pillars of the Jewish Community
Adam Milstein is a philanthropist and an activist. He was born in Israel and moved to the United States to study at the University of South California. He works at Hager Pacific Properties as the managing director. Adam Milstein writes that Israeli-Americans have come very far. It used to be that Israeli-Americans were at the fringe of the Jewish community in the United States. They were considered outsiders, as if they were going to leave and go back to Israel at any time.
However, Adam says, now he is not both an Israeli and an American, but an Israeli-American. No longer are Israeli-Americans on the fringe of the community and on the fringe of their synagogues. They have become more and more common and more and more prominent. This has resulted in things like the Israeli-American Council. The Israeli-American Council was co-founded by Adam Milstein. They have programs in twenty seven states, and they do all sorts of things in order to empower and help Israeli-Americans. The Israeli-American Council, under the leadership of Adam Milstein, is strengthening the Jewish community in the United States and the Israeli community in the United States.
Not only that, Adam Milstein writes, but the Israeli American Council has become a bridge between the Jewish communities in the United States and the State of Israel. Israeli-Americans have a connection to both, so they serve to bridge the gap between the two.
The Israeli American Council conducts gatherings and three-day conferences where Israeli Americans come together. Politicians, writers, editors, journalists, activists, and philanthropists all come together to help build the community together. Israeli-Americans serve as a conduit for injecting the Jewish community in the United States with Israeliness, according to Adam Milstein. They have come from being on the fringe to not only being an active player in the Jewish community in the United States, but a pillar of the community. Adam is also the co-founder of the Adam and Gila Milstein Foundation. This foundation focuses on a three pronged approach towards philanthropy for the Jewish community and Israel and more
