The Jewish community is again going through a rough patch after a campaign tagged as the boycott divestment and sanctions (BDS) was formed. Its primary priority is to create a barrier between the Jewish community around the world and the state of Israel. As if that is not bad enough polls show that after a period of successfully fighting it, antisemitism against Jews is again on the rise with statistics showing that it increased by 17% in 2017.
Even with that being the case, in his recent Jerusalem post, Adam Milstein is pretty optimistic that the Jewish race has a bright future in America. According to Milstein, the community has survived worse situations before due to great leadership. For instance, he cited various leaders such as Col. Mickey Marcus who left America back in 1948 to help Israel during the First World War. He successfully did so and even became the first modern general of Israel.
So how does that relate to the challenges that the Jewish community is facing today? Adam goes on to add that the problems facing them today are different from the ones which they went through several decades ago. In respect to that they demand a new set of high caliber leaders which he is certain will emerge soon. This is because he comes across and interacts with these budding leaders every day as he serves his duty of being a pro-Israel philanthropist and activist.
Even though he knows that the task ahead is no walk in the park as they will have to make tough decisions, they’ll be isolated and become subject to ridicule, Adam is certain that they are the ones who will shape the future of the Jewish community in America. Hence he is optimistic that the world will start viewing the Jewish Society from a positive perspective and that this will begin in America.
