Milstein Family Foundation Newsletter
Dear Friends,
The “New Antisemitism” of the terror-backed BDS movement continues to spread in America. In this month’s newsletter, Adam's latest article sheds light on how the Palestinian terrorist-affiliated campus group, Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), spreads hatred and antisemitism on U.S. campuses and beyond. SJP's national annual Jew-hatred summit commenced at the University of Minnesota this past weekend while at the same time and at the same place antisemite Ilhan Omar rallied with Bernie Sanders.

We also invite you to learn about Stand By Me. Under Gila’s leadership, the organization supports Israeli - American cancer patients and their families in Los Angeles. For more ways to get involved, please visit their  website.

Our work continues to expose the threats that the terror-affiliated, antisemitic BDS movement poses not only to the Jewish people, but to all Americans. What starts with the Jews, never ends with the Jews. Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) News recently shared Adam's op-ed which outlines how BDS is the new face of antisemitism and what we can do to stop it.

Finally, we are delighted to feature A Wider Bridge — a pro-Israel organization working through education, advocacy, relationship-building and grant-making to create equality in Israel by expanding LGBTQ inclusion in Israel, and equality for Israel by cultivating constructive engagement with Israel.

With sincere love and admiration for the State of Israel and the Jewish people,
Gila and Adam Milstein
SJP and BDS founders, financial patrons, and ideological supporters  have been linked  to Islamist and Palestinian terror organizations such as Hamas, Hezbollah, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, and the Marxist Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.

Yet we see almost no pressure to keep this violent hateful incitement —  reminiscent of the Nazi-era boycotts  of Jewish businesses — off campuses and away from students.

BDS is the new face of the old antisemitism: What will we do to stop it?
For quite some time we’ve known that BDS is a front for terrorist groups who seek Israel's destruction. New evidence now substantiates that the BDS movement is also the new face of the old antisemitism.
