Adam Milstein Discusses Ways Jewish Philanthropists Can Contribute to Connecting the Younger Jewish Generation to Their True Heritage. Adam Milstein, a Jewish real estate investor and philanthropist published an interesting article in the Algemeiner, on February 13th, 2017. He is founder of the Israeli-American Council (IAC) and has dedicated years to the mission of connecting young Jewish people to Israel and their Jewish heritage. Mr. Milstein continues to work diligently with other Jewish philanthropists and leaders in the United States to come up with solutions to tackle the issues causing the disconnection. In a recent Pew Study, data showed an estimated two-thirds of the next generation of Jews have no connection to Israel. A study published by Brandeis University revealed less than half of Jewish college students comprehended questions about Israel.
Mr. Milstein said Jewish leaders and philanthropists must determine how to invest their funds more efficiently and strengthen the United States and Israel alliance. They must also create strategies to ensure future generations stay in touch with Israel. To do this, Adam Milstein said they must respond to the challenges involving the trends by implementing two significant principles, understanding their target audience and to look for young disconnected Jewish people.
To understand the target audience, there is one important fact Adam Milstein mentioned, the non-existence of American Jewish communities. He says over the past 40 years he has seen communities change because of assimilation, immigration, and intermarriage trends. Some of the criteria they should consider when allocating resources are the age of the next generation, affiliation, and American Jewish immigration communities. Milstein said the work of the Israeli-American Council shows how investing funds can release resources to strengthen Israel relationship. They must invest smarter to overcome obstacles blocking their path to come to realization of their complete potential as a people in America.
Adam Milstein is Managing Partner of Hager Pacific Properties and helps to manage more than $2 billion in properties. He heads the San Fernando Valley Office and is responsible for property management, disposition, and financing. Hager is a private commercial real estate investment firm.
