For decades Adam Milstein has established himself as a prominent advocate for Israel and the Jewish people. Writing for The Jerusalem Post, Adam Milstein examines and explains how pogroms increased in the start of the 20th century. Milstein explains that pogroms spread across Eastern Europe and Latin America. The first anti-Jewish campaign occurred in 1903 in Kishinev, Russia. Gangs ravaged Jewish areas of Kishinev, murdering 49 Jews and wounding thousands more within two days.
Reflecting on the massacre in Kishinev, Adam Milstein believes that the Jewish People learned from the pogrom to guide the Zionist Movement. The Zionist Movement was founded on the philosophy of not relying on others to protect the Jewish people. As a result of increased pogroms and the Holocaust, many Jewish people relocated to the United States and Israel. In 1948, Jews in Israel defended themselves against six Arab armies, eventually leading to a Jewish state that could protect itself. Milstein states that Jewish immigrants grew to form accomplished and influential communities in the United States. Although Jewish American communities benefit the strong Jewish state, antisemitism continues to grow.
Adam Milstein was born and raised in Haifa. During his time with the IDF in Haifa, Milstein served in the Yom Kippur War. Milstein moved to the United States upon graduating from Technion. He pursued a postsecondary degree from the University of Southern California’s business school. After graduation, Milstein became a real estate investment manager in Los Angeles. Never forgetting his homeland of Israel, Adam Milstein and his wife founded the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation. Milstein’s foundation works to provide donations, time and expertise to organizations that strengthen the State of Israel and the Jewish people. Along with his foundation, Adam Milstein also spreads his activism of the Jewish people and Israel through a podcast. The Adam Milstein Podcast features conversations with leaders in the Jewish-American communities to support the advocacy of the Jewish people.
