A disturbing trend has been noted by Jewish advocacy groups concerning rising anti-semetism at Universities worldwide. Several instances of discrimination, hostility, and persecution have been reported by people of Jewish decent attending institutions of higher learning. In a US study from information gathered in years 2015 through 2017, Jewish students from four prominent American Universities reported dissident opinions towards Israel and open tolerance for anti-semetic views. At the prestigious ivy league college, Stanford, there has been an open discussion against Israel, with established movements like Boycott, Divest, and Sanction, or BDS, demonizing Israel and it’s supporters for their perceived oppression of Palestine. Many have argued that the BDS movement has increased racism against Jewish students. At Drexel University, a young man found a swastika and the word ‘Jew’ placed near his Israeli flag using duct tape and reported it to campus police. In fall of 2015, a Illinois student awoke to a black swastika spray painted outside her dorm window. Jewish advocate, Rabbi Dov Hillel Klein had this to say about the incident, “Its very sad when you realize hatred still exists”.

Reports of Jewish harassment, vandalism, and assault have poured in from all parts of the world. In 2017, the Community Security Trust organization, reviewed over 700 cases of anti-semetic incidents in the UK. For the 1st six months of 2017, the CST reported the highest number of anti-semetic cases since they began keeping record in 1984. The incidents range from violent assault to harassment via modern conventions like social media.

Some students have not found the openness of social media to be a tool against their oppression. After finding an offensive anti-semetic sticker, Izzy Lenga, a UK academic on the cusp of graduating, posted the image on social media. It was at this time, that Izzy learned how the unfiltered and uncensored style of the internet allows anti-semetism to fester with no regard for it’s victims. Within 24 hours of her posting, Izzy received over 2000 messages of hate and dissent, including messages from anti-Israel groups like National Action.

In recent years, many different viewpoints have come to the forefront regarding opposing viewpoints on various issues. This has been especially common with anti-Semitic groups, who have held numerous demonstrations against Israel and those of Jewish heritage. To combat these radical ideas, philanthropist and author Adam Milstein has chosen to use his talents as a writer to regularly contribute interesting and thought-provoking articles to the Jewish News Syndicate. By doing so, Adam is able to get his message of tolerance and compassion across to a vast audience, all the while being able to also focus on his philanthropic and business interests.

Knowing that it takes far more than written words to get positive results, Adam Milstein and his wife Gila chose to create an organization that would not only spread a positive message to Jewish families, but also offer numerous means of financial and other assistance. The result of their efforts has been the Milstein Family Foundation, which over the years has helped Jewish families in the United States, Israel, and other nations with financial difficulties as well as other issues. Helping regularly with relief efforts and other endeavors, Adam and Gila’s foundation focuses heavily on education. In this regard, the foundation sends families large amounts of books each month, all of which are written in Hebrew and explain many little-known aspects of Jewish heritage. By embarking on this cause, Adam and Gila’s foundation helps families learn about their heritage, while also learning Hebrew.

Having established himself as a leading businessman within the Jewish community, Adam Milstein feels it is very important for him to be a positive role model for those who share his beliefs and values. One way he has chosen to do so is by using his real estate development business to help local communities obtain properties for Jewish schools, worship centers, community centers, and other organizations that can help build confidence and self-esteem. Based on these and other actions, it’s clear Adam Milstein will use his forum at JNS as well as his business and philanthropic ventures to keep the traditions of the Jewish faith alive.
