Adam Milstein: The Next Generation of Leaders Is Here

Adam Milstein is a philanthropist and an activist who is well known in the Jewish community, both in the United States and in Israel, and beyond. He has done a lot for the Jewish community and for Israel. He is also an author and a writer. He writes blogs for the Times of Israel, one of the top destinations online for news and opinions about Israel and the Jewish community.

In a recent article, Adam Milstein wrote about how the Jewish community outside of Israel will rise up to meet the challenges that face them. He said that they will do it with Israel in their hearts. He wrote that Jews always stood up to defend Israel, from the very beginning of its creation. Ben Gurion and his friends were not able to build Israel without standing up to the British. Many Jews stood up to the Nazis, like in the Warsaw ghetto. There is now a new threat to Israel, and it comes from the movement that calls itself the BDS movement, which stands for Boycott, Divest, and Sanction. They want to boycott the State of Israel and separate it from the rest of the world, including the Jewish community in the United States. Adam Milstein says that we must stand up to this and not let it happen. We must make our voices heard and prevent the BDS movement from gaining traction.

Adam Milstein says that he believes that the next generation of leaders is here already. These are young people who live with the spirit of Ben Gurion and the other early leaders who fought for Israel. He says that he meets these people every single day through his activism and philanthropy work. He sees these young people participating in activities in Israel that help strengthen the Jewish people. He says that we must encourage and support these people because they are the counter to the BDS movement. They are the answer. We must give them a platform and a voice, and we will see results soon enough.

Eric Pulier: Anomaly and Outlier from Start to Finish

Eric Pulier is an incredible anomaly. We live in a time where STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) is shoved down the throats of Americans today hoping to spawn the new race of start-up founders. But what does this have to do with Eric Pulier being an anomaly?

 

Simple…yet for a few reasons.

 

 

The Doogie Houser of Tech Start-Ups

 

Visiting Eric Pulier’s Wikipedia page and his official websiteI quickly discover that Mr. Pulier began “programming computers in the fourth grade and started a database computer company in high school.” While kids his age were using computers for simple games and applications, he was a youth in revolt pre-emptively contributing to the technology created by our most famous rebels that would speak to how we live our lives.

 

These earlier accomplishments revealed the trajectory Eric would travel down into his adulthood. Malcolm Gladwell, the author of Outliers, would equally agree to identify Eric as an outlier–a man who is doing extraordinary things amongst ordinary men. However, Eric’s choice in course of study for college further defines him as an anomaly…and possibly classify as “most likely to fail” by STEM standards.

 

 

Shakespeare and Start-up Bound

 

A person with such a profound start in his adolescence and teen years would typically choose a school and major towards technology further supporting his computer aspirtations right? Wrong. Eric did the opposite. He would attend the prestigious Harvard University, a school known for producing Law Grads, majoring in the enemy or lower class citizen to STEM: English and American Literature.

 

Reading, writing, and demonstrating a love for art in words is great as a past time or hobby, but for being a serious entrepreneur it is severely frowned upon. Fortunately society has serious entrepreneurs such as Eric who is proving that his primary talent is proving naysayers and norms to be…well…stupid. It’s truly a testament to his ability to innovative and foresee unusual benefits. This is what continues to cement Eric as a bonafide outlier and anomaly.

 

 

Accomplished Man

 

It is clear that whatever Eric Pulier sets his mind to, it is going to exist. Hackronym.com has already done a great job documenting his track record. He is an entrepreneur’s entrepreneur defying all conventions for innovation and creativity to breathe. But his greatest endeavor?

 

Fatherhood. Venture capital investments do not hold a candle to the value and stock he’s raising in his four children.
