Adam Milstein On Israel Celebrating The 70th Anniversary As An Independent Jewish State

Adam Milstein is a co-founder of the IAC, an activist and philanthropist. He is also a managing partner at Hager Pacific and real estate developer. In 1981, Milstein moved to the United States to pursue his MBA at USC (University of Southern California).

Milstein found success in commercial real estate after graduating from the University of Southern California. He continues to work in the commercial real estate industry while dedicating his time to charitable causes that promote Israel and the Jewish culture. Adam Milstein is a regular contributor of the Times of Israel publication and other publications such as the Jerusalem Post.

One of the pieces Adam Milstein has written lately for the Jerusalem Post is about “Why Americans Are Celebrating Israel’s 70th.” People across America shared melodies, words, as well as images and videos as part of this celebration. The celebrations were held on 14th May and they marveled at the unbelievable accomplishments of the country.

For example, Adam Milstein stated that the 1995 Jerusalem Embassy Act recognized Jerusalem as the capital city or State of Israel. As a result, the United States Embassy in Israel had to be relocated to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv. This year, Jews in every part of the world celebrated the official recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital state by US President Donald Trump. They also celebrated the opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem.

According to Adam Milstein both Israel and America were established by individuals in search of religious tolerance and freedom. Both countries were founded on Western values with regards to freedom of the press, free speech, Judeo-Christian values and democracy.

The Zionist Dream and American Dream are more or less the same. According to Adam Milstein, both are rooted in the principle that every person should have the right to self-determination. Another principle shared by both dreams is the right for everyone to achieve success through determination and hard work.

Somehow, Israel has achieved the same. This is despite being surrounded by enemies and being thousands of miles away without any natural resources. Both Israel and the US have withstood existential threats through patriotism and courage of their people.
