Adam Milstein has become recognized as one of the world’s most influential Jewish leaders. He’s a former Israeli soldier who fought in the Yom Kippur War of 1973, and is currently Managing Partner at Hager Pacific Properties. Milstein has had a lot of success in the real estate business, but he’s become most known for his philanthropy at the Milstein Foundation, and for establishing non-profit groups that promote pro-Israel agendas. He is the Chairman of the Board on the Israeli-American Council, a founding member of AIPAC, a leader at Stand With Us, Hasbara Fellowships and Jerusalem U. He was listed at 39 in the Jerusalem Post’s Top 50 Most Influential Jews of 2016 list, along with figures such as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and US Senator Chuck Schumer.
Adam Milstein is the son of a building framer and a homemaker, both of whom moved to Israel back when the modern nation was just beginning in 1948. Adam is the oldest of three sons, and as a young man he was raised in three different cities. He first joined the military in 1971, and then became a part of Commander Ariel Sharon’s division that invaded Egypt in 1973. When his military service was up, he returned to pursue vocational training, and enrolled at the Technion, Israel Institute of Technology. He completed a bachelor’s degree in business and economics, and then worked along with his father in the construction industry.
Adam had married Gila Elgrably not long after returning from the war, and in 1981 they moved with their two daughters to the US. They later had a third daughter after doing so. Adam Milstein completed his MBA at USC, and then became a real estate specialist at Hager Pacific Properties. He started joining philanthropic organizations and started the Milstein Foundation in 2000, and he began focusing on educating young people about their Jewish roots, and forging alliances with other philanthropists for a common cause. The Milsteins have also founded Sifriyat Pijama B’America for teaching other Jews the ancient Hebrew language.
Jose Manuel Gonzalez has emerged as one of the most outspoken Venezuelan public figures. He is also a successful agricultural entrepreneur, and a deputy in the South American country’s National Assembly. He represents Guárico State. Mr. Jose Manuel Gonzalez recently shared his views on why agriculture and politics are complementary to each other. His insightful views clearly portray why he is one of the most intelligent and knowledgeable Venezuelan statesmen.
According to Mr. Gonzalez, Venezuela’s agricultural sector has stagnated. The country’s production has slowed down, a situation that denies it the much needed foreign exchange. Lack of foreign exchange has in turn relegated the country to a roller coaster supply. Little progress can be achieved in such a situation since no imports can be made to boost the sector. Poor management of government agencies mandated with overseeing the sector is condemning farmers to poverty every day. The distorted nature of foreign exchange rates is hurting the sector all the more since its agricultural output is sold at throwaway prices in the international market.
Gonzalez points out that the political elite have resorted to bickering instead of hitting the ground running to solve issues that face the country. The country is currently run by a fragile coalition government, which is bedeviled with red tape bureaucracy. This makes it quite difficult for leaders to consult and come up with measures that will revive the sector. Insecurity also remains a matter of serious concern in Venezuela. Up to ten kidnapping are reported on a weekly basis, something that exemplifies the precarious security situation. Gonzalez asserts that the government needs to stamp its authority, and deal with such issues to avoid economic ruin.
Jose Manuel’s Résumé
Mr. Gonzalez created a niche for himself by being a successful farmer. His popularity has seen him serve as the president of FEDECAMARAS. He is also renowned for standing up to government policies that affect farmers in the South American country, majority of whom live below the poverty line. At the national assembly, he has distinguished himself for being savvy, and for having an exceptional ability to articulate issues. His forthright nature has made him the de facto leader of small scale farmers in the country.
