It’s now time to expose how deep antisemitism runs in certain college activist groups and tackle ways to defeat the lies and propaganda they put out. That is what Israeli-American journalist, businessman and philanthropist Adam Milstein says it is time to do in his Jewish News Syndicate article. He notes that a lot of organizations on campuses have voted to block Jewish students from serving in leadership roles when antisemitic Muslim groups and progressive leftists have held power, and various campus boycotts against Jewish groups have been held. Milstein calls on parents and community leaders to prepare their young people to face and be ready to fight these groups, and he said that he and liberal donor Haim Saban are working on building a counter task force to fight college antisemitism.
US freezes #Palestinian aid budget! After Congress passed #TaylorForceAct, this freeze forces PA to terminate “pay-for-slay” policies of paying stipends to convicted terrorists in #Israeli jails and to the families of dead terrorists. #StopTerrorPayments https://t.co/8Oczypd4bX pic.twitter.com/KUsqomzwBI

Adam Milstein got involved in supporting Jewish-American campus activism a little over 10 years ago when he founded the Israeli-American Council in partnership with his foundation. But he originally came from Haifa, Israel where he grew up in a working family and also served several years in the Israeli Defense Forces. He studied economics and business at the Technion Israeli Institute of Technology and earned his bachelor’s degree, and then he took his wife and daughters to the US where he’s lived ever since in Los Angeles. He then finished his master’s degree and became a commercial real estate broker for a public firm for several years, but then he and his friend David Hager formed their own real estate firm known as Hager Pacific Properties.
Adam Milstein decided to go into philanthropy in part because it’s given his daily schedule structure, but also because he felt there was quite a large group of disaffected Israelis living in the US who didn’t feel at home. The groups he helped form under the IAC’s auspices have helped to give these people a voice and bring their accomplishments to light back in the Israeli homeland. The Adam Milstein Family Foundation has helped found organizations that educate families and promote knowledge of older customs and traditions, and they even have books they publish that teach Hebrew.
