Certainly, the opinion editorials Adam Milstein writes, in any given month, throughout the year have a message each its own. However, when the context of each piece is paired with another or even in group more than a message comes through. A dialogue reveals itself with various tones and exchange. With even more layers of complexity, different dialogues can be interpreted and even build to a debate.
In one editorial, Milstein points to the near miracle growth rate of Israeli-American Council as a marker to the growth of the Israeli Jewish community in the United States. He also points out events and developments between the community and the efforts of the council that supports healthy growth. This overlap is the background that puts current events into perspective. The context for the information provided is an inference that continuing effort needs to follow the growth of community in the US.
But like any good dialogue, there is a second point of view or contribution that adds salient information. Milstein’s article on the rise of anti-Semitic sentiment within the US on both the left and right side of the political spectrum illustrates a contrast to his other work. The condemning of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement happening in the US makes the article’s context one of warning and alert. The purpose of the context is to the strength of a growing community on a specific problem.
When the context of the opinion articles Adam Milstein writes dialogue, the one that focuses on diaspora and identity adds a feeling of explanation. This feeling is based on inspiring statistics regarding the community from information gathered over decades. This one piece in the triad of thought and higher thought illustrates something interesting. It shows how the problems the Jewish and Israeli-American community come from outside destructive sources.
