Alastair Borthwick was a world class leader, journalist, writer, broadcaster, and soldier in his often eventful life. His life is filling with many interests and his work is a reflection of this reality. As a writer perspectives can be taken from his work as it was mostly about war, mountaineering, and battles through the perspective of a soldier. When he did his time in the Second World War he did not recall his experiences as violent or combative but rather lonely even though he came face to face with death many times during his career. He started out as a private but then quickly worked his way all the way to corporal. His acts of valor became the clearest when he led a whole division of six hundred men through the darkness located behind enemy lines in order to evade and survive.
This was done successfully and many times more afterwards did Alastair Borthwick manage to prove his capabilities in war. Perhaps this kind of behavior could be associated with his axiom of pushing oneself a little further each time one is faced with an obstacle. His life did not start in war but in the world of writing and eventually broadcasting as well. At the age of six teen Alastair Borthwick decided to drop out of high school to work at the local newspaper in his town. His jobs varied as the demands of service varied but after going forth into writing for the Daily Mirrior he soon took up the role of broadcasting instead. His job as a broadcaster became something of a passion because although his writings complimented his broadcasting work it was his speaking abilities that made him so unforgettable. Even one of his colleagues claimed that the way he performed on the microphone was the standard for the way broadcasting ought to be done.
While broadcasting to most was an opportunity to revel in the status and elevation of power Alastair Borthwick did not see his work as such as his efforts stemmed from a place of genuinely loving what it was that he did which was broadcasting.
As extremists demonstrations against those of Jewish faith have become more common, many in positions of leadership are concerned about where these viewpoints will lead. This has been of great concern to Adam Milstein, who as President of the Israeli-American Council has spent many years traveling the world to speak to groups who are concerned about the mainstreaming of hatred. To combat this seemingly growing wave of extreme viewpoints, Adam has chosen to utilize his time to write numerous books and articles about this issue, as well as establish a foundation that he and his wife Gila believe will have a dramatic impact on the lives of many Jewish families.
Rather than let others turn a blind eye to the problems Jewish families face today, Adam Milstein and his wife put in tremendous amounts of time and resources for their Milstein Family Foundation. Along with providing financial support to many families and groups who find themselves in need, Adam and Gila also make sure Jewish families around the world continue to learn more and more about their Jewish heritage and faith. To make this happen, the foundation arranges to have a variety of books sent to these families each month. However, they are not just any ordinary books. Instead, they are written in the ancient Jewish language Hebrew, enabling those reading them to learn the language while at the same time discovering more about their heritage. In doing so, Adam Milstein hopes to encourage the next generation of Jewish families to be knowledgeable of as well as proud of their faith and heritage.
As he continues to fight the mainstreaming of hatred, Adam Milstein knows it will take a nonstop effort on his part as well as others to turn the tide of hatred into one of compassion and understanding. Whether doing so by working with communities to help develop local worship centers, schools, and other venues through his real estate development business, or instead traveling around the world to speak to many of today’s most influential groups, Adam Milstein will strive to get his message out to the world.
