Adam Milstein writes for the Jewish News Syndicate, the Jerusalem Post, the HuffPost, and the Times of Israel and he’s been focused on how Jewish-Americans can be stronger than ever in the face of opposition. According to Milstein, antisemitism has seen revivals in today’s world and a lot of it has come from Muslim groups mixed with far left liberal groups. Milstein warns people that though many of the progressive left claims to be the benefactors to those in the LGBT community, they’ve formed ties to Muslim groups who persecute those very people. He has said that Jewish people need to uphold their traditions and principles stronger than ever and take part in any political activism and voting necessary to support the nation of Israel.
Adam Milstein has fought on the physical battlefield against the enemies of Israel as has his father who fought in the navy during the 1948 War of Independence. Young Adam joined the Israeli Defense Forces when he turned 18 and served four years completing his service at the conclusion of the Yom Kippur War. After returning home and getting married, Adam Milstein enrolled and completed a bachelor’s degree in business and economics at the Technion, and three years later he relocated to Los Angeles and completed grad school at USC. He started becoming a commercial real estate investor, and several years later established a major holdings company in Hager Pacific Properties.
Adam Milstein became highly involved in the Israeli-American community when he came over, but he wanted to do more when he realized there was some alienation between Israeli-Americans and people back home in Israel. He and his wife Gila cofounded the Milstein Family Foundation which has become the main philanthropy organization and parent to groups like StandWithUs, Students Supporting Israel, Hasbara Fellowships and Sifriyat Pijama B’America. The goal of the the foundation is to enrich Jewish tradition learning through Hebrew learning, festivals, and even through sponsoring college student trips to Israel. Other activities that Milstein has presided over include video competitions and conferences hosted by the Israeli-American Council and AIPAC. He was named in 2016 to the Jerusalem Post’s Top 50 Most Influential Jews at number 39.
