The future of any community lies in the manner in which the young generation is raised. If they are raised up to be strong advocates and supportersof the community, then, the strength of the community will remain intact for numerous years. This is the case that is happening with the Jewish community. The community is facing a threat of being eliminated by forces of hate who have come together to fight the Jews. These are people who are wishing for bad things on the community. These people are mainly radical groups who do not appreciate the right of all human beings to live in peaceful environments without breaking their rights.
The Jews are being threatened by communities which do not want to see them live in the Middle East. The community will only live here if it continues to nurture the talents of young leaders who have shown passion in defending the community. The future of the Jewish community lies in the young people. As such, the young people must be strengthened to stand up and defend the right of the whole community. The country exists today because of strong leaders such as Meir Golda and Ben-Gurion who took the role of leading the community and did it with passion. These are people who never gave up when pushing for what was right for the community. They made sure that the Jews were the ultimate winners of the struggles that were going on at their time.
Adam Milstein is a community leader who believes that in light of the rise in anti-Semitism, the young people need to be strengthened such that they can rise and defend the community even at times when there is a threat of elimination by the radical groups. Adam Milstein believes that the young generation holds the key to the future of the community. If they abandon the community, then, the enemies will have the last laugh.
Adam Milstein is currently supporting the activities of various groups which support mentoring of young Jewish leaders. Among them are the Adam Milstein Family Foundation and the Israeli-American Council. These two organizations are led by Adam Milstein and are key to bringing up of a generation of proud young Jews.
Mathias Rosenzweig had an opportunity to interview Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart, the duo that makes the Chainsmokers. Unlike their DJ counterparts who involve the work of songwriters and singers to add their vocals to their electronic soundscapes to give them a human feel, the pair sings its compositions, something that impressed Mathias. Pall told him that despite pressure from fans, their goal was to produce an album that had 10 to 12 songs related to each other thus writing down their songs. He added that even when they had to include songwriters, they would be the ones guiding the whole song.
Mathias asked about how they met and how they knew they could work together and each of them had something to say. Andrew said that he came to New York after the kid who worked for Alex’s manager told him about a DJ duo that wanted a new member. When he got to New York, Alex quit his job and they immediately started working together. Alex told Mathias that they both had similar ambitions and core values. They chose to grow together learning new things and were ready to build an identity along the same line.
Alex told the magazine that social media had been of great importance boosting their music to reach a wider audience. He added that with their growing fan base, they were working extra hard to make sure they accommodate every fan within all age brackets by choosing their visuals keenly. Alex added that despite making music for themselves, they were glad people connected with it.
Mathias Rosenzweig then asked what it was like working with the star-of-the-moment, Halsey. Pall responded by commending Halsey for being one of the best performers with amazing vocals. He said that she was the type of artist they had always wanted to collaborate with. The duo mentioned to the magazine that, the song “Closer” was a composition they wrote in the bus in one of their tours and it turned out great. They drew inspiration from Taggart’s teen years when he went to school in Syracuse.
