Adam Milstein is a businessman and real estate investor. He’s also a writer who has penned many articles for The Times of Israel. His latest article is about instilling pride and courage in Jewish kids and raising them to be proud of their heritage. In this article he talks about a Jewish rebel group 2200 years ago named the Maccabees. At the time the area where Israel is now situated was militarily held by Greek forces. Many of the Jewish people living there at the time sought to assimilate into Greek culture, especially those who lived in cities.
The Maccabees, though, didn’t want anything to do with assimilation Adam Milstein says. They used guerrilla-style tactics to get Greece to pull back out of the region and leave it to the Jewish people. He says that Jews today need to take the same pride in the culture and how they raise their children to be proud of their history and uniqueness in the world.
There are many gifts that Adam Milstein writes can be handed down to those in the next generation. The first is being proud to be a Jew. He says he feels fortunate every day to be Jewish and the people upon whom Western values are based. He also wants to pass on courage and fighting for what you really believe in. This includes standing up against those who threaten the future of Israel.
For centuries Jewish people were stateless. Because of this they highly valued education and knowledge. Adam Milstein writes that every household with children needs to prioritize education. This will help them thrive in a 21st-century economy and also develop wisdom. He also says that Jewish people have a long history of innovation including developing the Theory of Relativity. Because of this innovation they have survived and adapted through many events over the course of history.
One of the other gifts that Adam Milstein writes about being passed on is passion. Passion, he says, is one of the main ways to find personal fulfillment in life. He says every day of your life matters and you should really care about how your spend your time and resources in order to live life to its fullest.
