Adam Milstein has recently been recognized by the Jerusalem Post as a deserving member of the worlds Top 50 Most Influential Jews. This list of the elite include Jews who have made their mark on the world during the last year and show promise of more positive things to come. Milstein ranks 39th on the list for his leadership of the Israeli-American Council, philanthropic works, as an activist, and his involvement in various other note-worthy Jewish organizations.
He joins a select group of other great names such as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, U.S. Senator Charles Schumer, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader, and entertainer Sarah Silverman among many other deserving people on this list. According to Milstein himself the award is a testament to what can be accomplished through the determination of the Israeli-American community as a whole. His impact is felt by those who need it most, his fellow Jews.
As a talented philanthropist, Milstein keeps his family’s mission firmly in mind. Whatever can be done to give strength to the State of Israel and its people will always be a priority. Feeling privileged for this honor rather than entitled to it speaks well of an honorable man’s character. Making any kind of positive difference in today’s world often seems like an exercise in futility, yet Adam Milstein continues to do so time after time.
The Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation focuses on stirring the pride of young Jews, offering pro-Israel Americans the knowledge and expertise needed to advocate for the State of Israel. This helps to strengthen the crucial U.S.-Israel alliance, and shows the entire world what one can accomplish for the good, if they wish to. Imagining a world without people like these Top 50 and their drive to improve it is like a future with no hope.
