His recent article shines a light on the need for people to fight for their liberty and survival with zeal and strength. It is based on the story of the Maccabees- a Jewish rebel group that once lived in Israel. During their era, this land was controlled by Greek armies, and most Jews knew that their pathway to emancipation would be through the assimilation of this Greek culture. The Maccabees, who were determined to protect their identity, mastered all the determination and courage they had and trumped over the Greek to build themselves their nation on their land despite their fewer numbers and weaker weapons.

In light of this heroic story, Milstein came up with eight gifts that if shared in each Jewish family in the face of challenges, would ensure that the future of the oncoming generations is secured. He encouraged pride, courage, persistence, knowledge, innovation, belief in the impossible, brotherhood and passion so that a new chapter of the Jewish people is written.
