As we begin a New Year, the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation is proud to be supporting a range of remarkable projects, conferences and competitions.

In 2017, we will send 350 Milstein Family Fellows and 300 Christian students to the AIPAC Policy Conference, work with Virtually Israel to bring cutting-edge virtual reality Israel experiences to more organizations and campuses, and sponsor our second annual Inspired by Israel Video Competition in partnership with the Israel Video Network and the 12Tribe Films Foundation. 

Here’s to the year in which we work together to strengthen the Jewish people, the Jewish State, and the U.S.-Israel relationship. 

Best wishes,

Gila and Adam

If we are concerned about the alienation of the Jewish-American community from Israel and our Jewish heritage, and assuming that we have limited resources, where should we invest in order to get the best ROI?

Featured Grantee: CareerUp
As part of our partnership with University of Florida Hillel, we're featuring their incredible Career Up program!

Career Up, an initiative founded and incubated at the University of Florida Hillel, is appreciative for the partnership with The Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation. Career Up anchors career advancement with Jewish values and Israel advocacy to engage 18- to 26-year olds with meaningful Jewish practice, spirituality, networking, and community. It draws on professional development workshops based in Jewish texts, experiential worship opportunities, and purposeful networking experiences with American and Israeli entrepreneurs to inspire the next generation of Jews, and helps them to gain access to professional networks, establish a place in the Jewish community, and to find being Jewish and Israel relevant.

In September, Career Up piloted an experience in Los Angeles with 15 students from UCLA and 25 local industry leaders. The event was headlined by Eytan Elbaz, co-founder of the company that later became Google AdSense, and included conversations with various professionals (full list here) centered upon the 48 Sensibilities in Pirke Avot 6:6.

We are grateful to The Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation for their inspiration, support, and impact.
