Adam Milstein firmly believes that American Jews can connect with the Jewish State through the help of American Israelis. They can begin to understand Israeli culture and how to speak and read Hebrew. Milstein recognizes that Israelis 10 years ago who came to American were disconnected from Jewish life. Nowadays, Jewish federations and communities are working together to help build their communities across the globe. Anti-Semitism is prominent in the United States, which is why Adam wants to help Israeli-Americans find an identity that makes them proud to live in America. With the help of social media, Adam and his organizations are hoping to expose anti-Semitism in the UN. The goal is to become integrated within America, and create a stronger Jewish community. Israelis should understand that they are an asset of Israel to the United States. They are not the enemy, but an ally that speaks their language and understands them.
