Adam Milstein – @AdamMilstein
The California-based real estate investor started his pro-Israel enterprise with a simple premise: How do you corral the influence of tens of thousands of Israeli Americans like him in support of the Jewish state? And how do make sure a famously secular cohort of expats hold on to their Jewish identity in a wide open Diaspora?
Milstein uses the wide reach of his Twitter account to promote the agenda of his organization, the Israeli-American Council, boosting Israeli tech, flagging anti-Semitism and defending Israel from criticism in the media and anywhere else.
It’s conventional pro-Israel “hasbara” – what some might call propaganda – that nonetheless gives voice to a segment of a cohort that has long been overlooked by the American-Jewish mainstream.
