Friends, we are inspired by Winston Churchill's quote: “ We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” Our family foundation is humbled to be able to share the joy of giving with organizations who share the same values and mission as we do — ensuring the special affinity to Israel of the young and future Jewish generations.

We were honored to have been able to send 60 non-Jewish student leaders to Israel for their first time on the Milstein Family Foundation Campus Allies Mission to Israel together with AIEF . I n the last 13 years, we have brought more than 600 non-Jewish student leaders to Israel, educating them about the political realities facing Israelis. These leaders return to their campus and can make a difference combating the anti-Israel atmosphere that surrounds many US institutions.

We’re also excited to announce that 240 filmmakers registered for our third annual “Inspired by Israel” video contest! Starting Monday, August 6, you can vote on your favorite videos to help choose the finalists, during our one-week voting period. A total of $20,000 in cash prizes will be awarded to 18 videos.

Additionally, this month we attended the Christians United for Israel (CUFI) Summit in Washington, DC, with thousands of others who stand together to support Israel.

Lastly, we're proud to feature our partner The Haym Salomon Center, a news and public policy group that produces content on stories often ignored by traditional media outlets and offers op-eds from some of the nation’s sharpest minds.

We thank you for all that you do to advance our shared mission. We look forward to partnering with you in the months ahead, as we work together to strengthen the State of Israel and the Jewish people.

With sincere love and admiration for Israel and the Jewish people,

Gila and Adam Milstein
The 2018 Milstein Family Foundation Campus Allies Mission sent 60 non-Jewish student leaders from the best institutions nationwide to Israel. Adam and Gila have been sponsoring this trip for over a decade now — 13 years — bringing more than 600 students to Israel to experience and better understand the challenges facing this small nation.

These young leaders return to their campus armed with a deeper understanding of the strategic and social issues facing Israel today, and engage with the challenges and opportunities associated with the U.S.-Israel alliance. More importantly, these future leaders are in an incredible position to not only make an impact on their campus, but for their country.

CUFI Summit
The important relationship between America and Israel protects our shared values and is a bulwark against Israel’s enemies. CUFI’s steadfast support for a strong US-Israel relationship is integral to America’s support for the Jewish State.
Last month, we attended the annual CUFI Summit , along with thousands of other supporters of the state of Israel. It was wonderful meeting so many like-minded people! Young and old, these passionate supporters of Israel truly understand the vital importance of strengthening the strong relationship between our two countries. These allies in the fight against anti-Semitism deeply understand the spiritual and historical importance of supporting a strong, independent Jewish state in the land of Israel.
We are forever grateful to call so many at CUFI our friends and look forward to continuing to work together to support the people and land of Israel for many, many years to come.
Featured Organization: Haym Salomon Center
The Haym Salomon Center is a public policy nonprofit organization that produces news and opinion content supporting Israel, exposing anti-Semitism, and holding the press and politicians accountable.
Where the Jewish state is concerned, most media outlets feed the public a narrative that is at best, biased and inaccurate and at worst, malicious and slanderous. Our contributors and fellows—staunch supporters of Israel and Western values—speak truth to the negativity, and our center works to make sure their analysis reaches a wide audience. Our bylines appear in mainstream outlets such as USA Today , The Wall Street Journal, New York Daily News, Forbes and The Hill . No pro-Israel organization reaches a larger, more diverse audience than the Haym Salomon Center.

The Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation is proud to sponsor this impactful organization.
The Mission of  The Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation  ("MFF") is to strengthen the State of Israel, the homeland of the Jewish People, and its special ties with the United States of America; and to ensure the special affinity to the State of Israel of the young and future Jewish generations.
