Adam Milstein continued devotion to shaping the future of Jews in the world

At the height of the Jewish community, lies a man who speaks, sleeps and does everything in his willpower to eradicate the stigma against Jews living in the United States and the world as a whole. Adam Milstein is his name and for many years, the Israeli-American man has continued to demonstrate his commitment in championing for the rights of the Jewish community and is quite vocal about antisemitism. He uses whichever avenue he has to increase awareness about the matter and regularly devotes his time to write and post about it on the Times of Israel.

How previous heroes helped tackle antisemitism

His recent article on the Times of Israel talks of how Jews in the diaspora have in the past and will in the future rise to tackle the challenges facing Israel. He highlights various individuals in history who have previously shown support for Israel such as Mordechai Anielewicz who bravely led the Jews against the Nazi during the Second World War. Adam also talks of Colonel Mickey Marcus who left his own country to go and help Israel in 1948 leading the nation to victory and even becoming the first modern general.

Reasons why Adam Milstein is certain that antisemitism will be a problem of the past and some of the current challenges facing the community

These are just but a few instances in which the Jews in the diaspora have demonstrated their support for Israel. Even though the problems facing the community today are more challenging and differ from the previous, Adam Milstein is certain that the community will overcome because he comes across budding Jewish heroes on a daily basis as he goes about his Pro-Israel activities. He has faith in them and is certain that they will help eradicate antisemitism and shape the Jewish future as they boast the same qualities as previous heroes.

In the same article, Adam Milstein goes on to point out various challenges that are currently like a thorn in the flesh of the Jewish Community such as the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign whose primary objective is to eradicate Israel as a nation from the world map. It seeks to achieve this by breaking the connection between Jews In diaspora and the state of Israel hence creating the divide and rule kind of situation.

To prevent such campaigns from achieving their objectives, Adam Milstein encourages Jews in the diaspora to identify, encourage and support the emerging set of leaders mentioned earlier in the article who will take up the steps of previous heroes like Ben Gurion, Mickey Marcus, and Mordechai Anielewicz by leading the Jews against antisemitism.

More about Adam Milstein

Adam has more to his hat than just being an author for the Times of Israel. For instance, he is the managing partner at Hager Pacific a real estate company that has been doing pretty well thanks to his unique leadership skills. Adam is quite lucrative and holds an MBA from the University of Southern Carolina and is a Bachelor of Science in business and economics degree holder.

He is heavily involved in Philanthropic activities with a focus on uniting the Jewish community and the rest of the world. To achieve this, Adam and his wife established the Adam and Gila Milstein foundation which initiates and sponsors programs that teach Jews in diaspora about their roots in Israel and how they can connect to their motherland. He is also a member of various foundations related to the same course and his outstanding devotion to creating a better world for the Jews has seen him being recognized by the Jerusalem Post as one of the world’s 50 most influential Jews and was also listed among the top 100 people positively influencing Jewish life in 2015 and was recently named one of t

Here’s How Stream Energy Cares

Stream Energy is a provider of home services and access to commodities like electricity, natural gas, Internet access, and mobile phone service. The company was founded in 2005 and operates its headquarters in Dallas, Texas, the city it was created in by Rob Snyder and Pierre Koshajki some years ago. Currently, the company has more than 250 employees, making it one of the largest such companies in the United States.

Just three months ago, Patch featured an article that covered the good deed Stream Energy most recently executed chosen from its laundry list of similarly major plans, which was creating the Stream Cares Foundation, a philanthropic organization that helps both the people of Dallas and those of its surrounding cities with goods, services, and other support they need.

When the people of Dallas were blindsided by the mass damage caused by Hurricane Harvey, many people were there to help, including those hailing from none other than Stream Energy. With some parts of Houston, a major city and metropolitan area reasonably close to Dallas, receiving nearly five feet of rain, not to mention gale-force winds and being exposed to environmental hazards like nearby chemical supply companies leaking their flammable and otherwise dangerous stock into flooded areas, people trapped in the area were very much in need of the aid of organizations like Stream Energy.

Stream Energy and Stream Cares are also very much worried about the chronic problem of homelessness. Even though the United States of America is unarguably the wealthiest nation on planet Earth – it also has the most active economy, blowing second-place China out of the proverbial waters of economic power – hundreds of thousands of people across the United States are faced with the problem of homelessness.

Recently, Stream Cares hooked up with Hope Supply Company, a philanthropic organization created nearly 30 years ago that is also located in Dallas, not too far away from the Stream Energy campus. Not too long ago, the two companies had joined forces to distribute both monetary assistance and toys for the children of more than 1,000 households, an accomplishment that is nothing short of substantial.

After his graduation, Dr. Mark McKenna worked with his father who is also a doctor where he had his own practice before engaging in the real estate business in New Orleans.

His motivation for the entrepreneurship stemmed from the fact that he wanted to make more earnings while still concentrating on his career as a medic. For this reason, Dr. McKenna made his decision to be in business when he was still in school. Again, Dr. McKenna was very serious about his goal that he even bought his first real estate when he was still a medical student.

Shervin Pishevar Hints That Silicon Valley Is No Longer the Tech Giant It One Was

Suffice to say, Silicon Valley is known as the center of tech innovations in America. As a matter of fact, Shervin Pishevar is an angel investor in some of the most reputable tech companies in this Silicon Valley. On February 2018, Shervin Pishevar went on a 21-hour long tweet storm, and one of the topics he touched on is tech innovations in Silicon Valley, concerning big companies and startups.

As an entrepreneur, Shervin Pishevar has played a significant role in the current state of Silicon Valley. In his tweets, he mentions that Silicon Valley is no longer the giant it was in tech innovations. He tweeted that “A tectonic shift in has been brewing as Silicon Valley has lost some of its competitive edge against competing zones of innovation.” Why is this the case? Innovation is mostly creativity. People from different parts of the globe now have the skill set and know-how needed to develop tech innovations of their own.

Innovation also involves a lot of technical and engineering skills. And as Shervin Pishevar notes, there is not enough workforce in the U.S. to fill these positions. As a result, Silicon Valley has lost its competitive edge to other regions that have the ability to create their own products.

Truth be told, there is a lot of talent out there. If Silicon Valley wishes to remain at the top, it is time immigrants were allowed to come into the country. Pishevar goes on to mention that “But while we build walls physical and culture to keep out immigrant talent that talent doesn’t need to come here anymore.” He also tweeted that “As I’ve said before Silicon Valley is it longer a physical place but an idea that’s gone viral. Entrepreneurship is a movement. Borderless.”

What does this mean? If Silicon Valley wants to continue experiencing growth, they have to bring in immigrants who have the needed skills. If they don’t do so, other zones will take over and capture more talent, leaving Silicon Valley behind.
