Milstein Family Foundation Newsletter
Dear Friends,

For the first time, many of us are celebrating Passover physically separated from our loved ones. Although we understand the growing concern, anxiety, and uncertainty at this time we are also inspired by our Jewish tradition that teaches us the importance of our freedom. We firmly believe that our community will overcome this suffering together by gathering the courage and strength to move forward.

As the Coronavirus spreads around the world, so does antisemitism. We will continue fighting both with the same force.

In this month’s newsletter, read Adam's latest analysis on rising Jew-hatred in America perpetuated by the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement. He offers concrete solutions to eradicate this age-old bigotry .

We also invite you to learn about Stand By Me . Under Gila's leadership, the organization provides care and services to Israeli-American cancer patients and their families in Los Angeles, making sure that no one in our community faces cancer alone. Their work is especially critical as we face this worldwide pandemic. For more ways to get involved or to support Stand By Me, please visit their  website .

We are proud to support initiatives helping communities in need through COVID-19. IsraAID , i n partnership with our foundation, is offering webinars on mental health and psychosocial education throughout the next month. Please find the registration information below. 

We are honored to be featured in IZZY 's " Global Jewish 100 " List, which celebrates Jews who are moving Jewish culture forward.

Finally, we feature The Institute for Monitoring Peace and Cultural Tolerance in School Education ( IMPACT-se ) , a world leader in researching, translating and exposing antisemitism and anti-Israel bias in school textbooks from the Middle East and beyond.

May you and your family have a happy, healthy and safe Passover.

With sincere love and admiration for the State of Israel and the Jewish people,
Gila and Adam Milstein
Eradicating the Anti-Semitic BDS Movement
Adam Milstein's article was first published in Jewish Policy Center’s  inFOCUS Quarterly  Spring 2020 issue.
Defeating the BDS movement is the best way for Americans to fight rising anti-Semitism and the hate groups that radicalize and polarize our country today.

There are concrete solutions to reduce the spread of Jew-hatred in America. They focus on eradicating the BDS movement and its influence. If we want to uphold the values that make America a beacon of freedom, justice, and safety for the world, this is how we can lead the way.

The Global Jewish 100
Adam Milstein is honored to be featured in IZZY s Global Jewish 100 list, celebrating those across the world who are moving Jewish culture forward. Individuals were selected according to their accomplishments, influence, and impact.   
Featured Organization: IMPACT-se
IMPACT-se combats radicalization and exposes anti-Israel content in school textbooks. We present policy recommendations to legislators and senior government officials in America and Europe, lobby for policy and funding changes, and fight antisemitism around the world.
Over the past year, we’ve had enormous success: including pressuring the European Union, United Kingdom, and Germany to review the entire Palestinian Authority (“PA”) curriculum. We’re working with the US Congress for positive change— and even the United Nations is now calling out the PA for their hateful curriculum.
In addition to tackling the PA, IMPACT-se is reviewing curricula across the region. We just released a report on Saudi Arabia and Qatar is next. We are also working to develop a “Wasatia” or “Moderate” approach to Arabic education. IMPACT-se's work is only possible thanks to supporters like the Milstein Family Foundation, which has been instrumental in helping us sustain and scale our important work.
MFF is proud to support IMPACT-se.
