Let's Get Real.
Over 80 persons and groups of people are eagerly checking the Israel video network to see how many votes their entry in the Inspired by Israel video contest has received so far. People from all over the world will watch the videos and have the chance to vote one time before the contest ends on March 29, 2017. With a grand prize of $8,000 and 18 other cash prizes, the stakes are high. The Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation is sponsoring the contest along with the 12Tribe Films Foundation, a company that specializes in Israeli narrative movies. Gila Milstein, Michael Dickson of the StandwithUs organization and Jewish Journal David Suissa are part of the panel that will select the winners after the public voting period ends. The Milstein Family Foundation’s mission is to foster Jewish pride and maintain the alliance between Israel and the United States.
Philanthropist Adam Milstein supports a number of causes in addition to serving as the chair of the Israeli-American Council, which he co-founded. Along with his wife, Milstein co-founded Sifriyat Pijama B’America, which is Pajama Library in Hebrew; the organization sends free books to preschoolers throughout Israel. Milstein sits on the board of the Hasbara Fellowships organization, which trains college students to act as pro-Israel activists on their North American campuses. In addition, the Milstein Family Foundation generously provides funding for the Milstein Coalition Building Grant to allow the students to create clubs that educate other students about Israel.
When Adam Milstein is not actively participating in a wide range of causes he supports to fortify the State of Israel and the Jewish people, he is in charge of property management and financing at Hager Pacific Properties.
