Adam Milstein Takes On The Issue of Brain Drain In The Country Of Israel

Adam Milstein is currently a managing partner at Hager Pacific Properties, a real estate firm. Adam Milstein has a bachelor’s degree relating to business that he earned at a university in Israel, as well an MBA that he earned in the United States of America.

Adam Milstein actively takes an interest in the issues that strike Jewish people. Adam Milstein discusses Jewish people from all angles, including the angle of how many young Israelis are abandoning Israel to start permanent lives in the United States of America. This is not particularly a good thing because of the fact that the people who are leaving Israel are the cream of the crop. They tend to be the most educated and are generally more secular.

While educated and secular young people are leaving Israel, the amount of Ultra—Orthodox Jews will quadruple by 2065. Of course, nobody should ever say disparaging things about any Jew. However, Ultra-Orthodox Jews live very traditional lifestyles and put a tremendous amount of importance on religion. They do not fit into a modern society, and they tend to pursue state-funded religious study while subsisting on welfare. In a modern society, they can easily be considered a drain on resources and, perhaps, a bunch of bums. Each generation has a high birth rate, so this is why about 48% of the Israeli population will probably be Ultra-Orthodox by 2065. To make matters worse, their state-funded schools do not really teach that much when it comes to crucial topics such as math and science. So, under their influence, the school system and the competitiveness of Israel will suffer.

Another huge problem is that a dignified quality of life is out of reach for many young Israeli people. Younger Israeli see the problems of their elders—never owning property, always paying rent and living from paycheck to paycheck—and feel that they want to look for greener pastures. The problem with this is that Israel is the homeland of Jewish people. It should not be place with little opportunity where the younger generations disperse and move throughout the world—only to keep the diaspora going.
