ADAM MILSTEIN

A PROUD ISRAELI-AMERICAN ACTIVE PHILANTHROPIST

At the Adam and Gila Milstein foundation, we often find ourselves doing a million things at once: evaluating grant applications and pitches from organizations seeking our support, linking our partner organizations with one another, responding to media outlets seeking our input, and (my personal favorite) getting new and exciting initiatives off the ground. The list goes on and on. We try our best to remain connected with every single passionate person looking to become more involved in the fight to defend Israel and safeguard the Jewish homeland. At the Foundation, we answer every single email looking for the opportunity to  Read More…

This is an abbreviation of a real conversation I have often (including my bluntness). As the Executive Director of the Milstein Family Foundation, I hear the question “What can I do to help?” all the time. Day after day, I meet dedicated people who want to do SOMETHING to advocate for Israel. Many  Read More…

Source: Jewish Journal by Adam Milstein American Jewry has witnessed a tsunami of hate on college campuses and across our communities. In the past year, resolutions calling for a divestment and boycott of Israel have been considered or passed by 30 student governments across the U.S. Israel haters have charged Jewish undergraduates seeking student government positions at UCLA and Stanford with “dual loyalties,” claiming that their strong Jewish identities should disqualify them from representing other students. AEPi — America’s largest Jewish fraternity — has seen an unprecedented rise in attacks on its members and vandalism on its houses. On and off  Read More…

I fear that its safeguards are insufficient, it’s assurances too amorphous and its end result will be to empower our enemies and imperil our friends.   RABBI SHARON BROUS / IKAR Theology is where we strive for perfection; politics is by definition the realm of the  Read More…

Source: Times of Israel Starting a blog on the Times of Israel has been on my radar since becoming the Program Director at the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation, where I oversee our organization’s work to strengthen the State of Israel and the Jewish people.

By sharing my experiences with the Milstein Foundation and the nonprofit organizations which we support, I hope to inspire and aid  Read More…

Posted on June 21, 2015 by JNS.org and filed under Features, Jewish Life, U.S.. By Maayan Jaffe Since the Pew Research Center released its U.S. Religious Landscape Study in May, most discussion of its findings has been quickly drowned out by other news. This is in stark contrast to the much-debated Pew survey on American Jewry that was released in October 2013. Why the discrepancy? It’s likely because little new was discovered in the latest poll. According to the study, 25 percent of individuals raised as Jews no longer consider themselves Jewish, 35 percent of Jews who are married or living with a partner are with a non-Jew, and 39 percent  Read More…
