Just the other day, Adam Milstein alongside other Jewish leaders were named amongst the 50 most influential Jewish figures. Other than Milstein, other fellow Jews named on the list included the current Prime Minister of the State of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu, the US Senator Charles Schumer, philanthropists Haim Saban and Sheldon Adelson as well as Ron Lauder and Mathew Bronfman. The list also included Supreme Court judges Elena Kagan and Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The list also recognized some of the most influential comedians and entertainers with Jewish roots such as Sarah Silverman together with Gal Gadot. Finally, the Jerusalem post mentioned other leaders who include Malcolm Hoenlein and Natan Sharansky.
Adam Milstein was named for the impact that he had made in the Jewish world as well as due to his potential in making more impact in the coming years. He appeared as number 39 on the list. Adam acknowledged that he was honored and humbled to be named amongst the most influential Jews of today. Milstein said that he was grateful to the role that the Israel-American council and his wife had played in making the world a better place.
Adam Milstein has been on the forefront of leading the Israel-American council. He has also been involved with other charitable organizations such as Hasbara Fellowships as well as StandWithUs and Israel on campus coalition. These are organizations striving to make a difference in this world. Noticeably, Milstein was named on this list for his involvement with the Adam and Gila Milstein Foundation. This is also a charity organization that brings the awareness of the importance of active philanthropy to the Jewish people.

The Kaballah Centre is an organization which offers Kabbalistic knowledge to thousands of students found in over 50 locations around the world. Rav Yehuda Ashlag founded the first Kabbalah Centre in Jerusalem in 1922. Yehuda Brandwein, who had been his student, succeeded him and then in 1969 Brandwein gave Philip Berg the responsibility of running the non-profit organization. Philip Berg and his wife Karen re-established the Kabbalah Centre in New York City a few years after the death of Yehuda Brandwein.
Kaballah Centres all over the globe offer various tools to enable students to learn the teachings from anywhere and in the most convenient manner. Students may attend the lessons physically or can study online. The vast array of learning material includes books, downloadable material (audios, videos, and documents), prayer services, CDs, DVDs, and lectures.
The main aim of equipping people with Kabbalistic wisdom is to enable them achieve personal development and improve relationships with people around them. The teachings are based on the Zohar and the writings of famous Kabbalists. Zohar seeks to demystify some of the occurrences found in the old testament of the Bible. Many people see
Kabbalah as a system of universal wisdom which anyone can learn and improve his/her life.
This mystical tradition has become global with some even taking it as their personal religion. Its popularity is shown by the number of Smartphone Apps related to the non-profit organization. Kabbalah Centre’s Volunteer program aims at not only improving the lives of volunteers but also helping the less privileged and conserving the environment. Students who join this program can share ideas and participate in activities that are fulfilling.
The Volunteer program is all about making a difference in the world. It is about making the world a better place than you found it. The activities in the volunteer program include; cleaning a part of town, providing food and shelter to the homeless, sharing and mentoring new students. As Karen Berg advises, you must share yourself in a way that makes a difference and improves not only your life but that of other people.
