Adam Milstein Works Hard to Improve the State of His Jewish People

According to an article originally published on BusinessWire, Adam Milstein was honored as one of the top 50 Jewish figures to impact the world today and that have a potential to impact the world tomorrow. This award is given annually by the Jerusalem Post. Adam Milstein says that he is very humbled by the award that recognized others including United States Senator Charles Schumer, Supreme Court Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Associate Justice Elena Kagan. Also making the list were Sheldon Adelson, Haim Saban, Ron Lauder, Lynn Schusterman and Matthew Brohfman. Not surprisingly, Prime Minister Benjamin Neranyahu tops the list. The newspaper arrived at the list using a four person committee from their own staff.

Adam was recognized for many different things including his creation of the Israel-American Council. This organization was originally formed in 2007 by 80 Jewish American California business people, including Adam, to show support for Israel during the Second Lebanon War. One of the first acts of this organization was to raise funds to put computers in schools in Sderot, Israel. Adam is now the chairman of this group that has 10 regional offices and has members living in 27 different states.

Adam and his wife operate their own foundation that regularly supports Jewish organizations in America. Unlike many philanthropists who simply write a check, they work very closely with the organizations that they support. Each organization is also expected to give part of their funds to another organization and work with it to become stronger.

Adam feels that one of the main problems facing Jewish Americans today is anti-Jewish sentiment, particularly on college campuses. He says that many young people are afraid to admit that they are Jews because they fear that they will be bullied. Therefore, he has been very active in supporting Jewish students.

Adam and his wife came to the United States from Israel in 1981. He was not a practicing Jew at the time. His business partner taught him that it was the Jewish way to give 10 percent of his income away. Since Adam started doing this, he says that he has seen God work miracles in many different circumstances.

The hallmark of any successful company is its desire to affect social change in the community in which it does business. And Diversant is that company.

It protects you, as a person, from being ruined by predators that lurk on the Internet, and want to ruin someone. It has happened to many people, and they go after the rich and the poor, and the young and the old.

Sharing the Everyday Moments With Securus Technologies

Picture this. A family waits anxiously in the courtroom to hear the judge’s verdict. They are hoping and praying that their loved one is declared innocent. Unfortunately, he or she is declared guilty and is whisked off to a waiting vehicle for transportation to a correctional facility. At this point, the family is crushed. I would also be crushed, and would not know where to start on how to keep in touch with my incarcerated loved one. As I looked online for ways to make this transition easier, I came across Securus Technologies, and their website. What I found there amazed me.


 Securus Technologies, founded in 1986, has served over 1,200,000 inmates all over North America. They have over 800 products for the law enforcement and corrections sector and are present in over 3400 corrections agencies. Services provided include incident management, emergency response, inmate self-service and many others. The aim of Securus Technologies is to take the pain out of the incarceration experience using modern technology.


As I browsed through their website, I found that they provide communication services for inmates and their families. There are the options of the phone, video, and email communication. I would imagine that a prisoner with a young family would benefit most from video visitation, so I looked it up. On opening the link, I found that there are two options available. The first one is that of At-Home visitation, where the family can communicate with their incarcerated loved ones from the comfort of their home. All that is needed is a computer with a web camera and an internet connection. The other option is that of Onsite Video Visitation where the family can book their visit to the correctional facility in advance, thus avoiding the queues. I would pick the first option.


An impressive example of how video visitation works was recently posted online by Securus. This video shows a father who is in prison take part in his child’s birthday party, watch his kids play with their puppy, chat with his wife and see how his children are growing. These things, though part of everyday life for most of us, are treasured moments for inmates. Video visitation, therefore, keeps families together by helping them to share the everyday moments as well as the special occasions.


Having gone through their website and watched the above video, I would conclude that if I ever had the experience of having a loved one incarcerated, I would turn to Securus Technologies to help keep my family together. Securus is committed to connecting what matters – the family.
