Adam Milstein is a native Israeli who utilized his cultural upbringing to become a well-respected leader within the Jewish community. Every since the youthful age of 19 when he joined the Israeli Defense Forces and served in the Yom Kippur War, Adam Milstein has been on a journey to defend his nation, inspire leadership, and dispel hate against the Israeli-American population. After earning a degree in business management in 1978 from the Israel Institute of Technology and marrying his soul mate who also served in the forces, Milstein made the daring decision to leave his homeland to relocate to the United States in 1981.
As intended, Adam Milstein’s move to the U.S. would prove to be extremely beneficial in enabling him to execute his philanthropic agenda within the Jewish community. Succeeding the move, Milstein enrolled to be a student at the University of Southern California where he then graduated with his MBA in 1983. Shortly thereafter, he was employed and working within the field of real-estate as a sales agent whereby he exerted himself fervently to acquire the skills to be promoted to the title of managing partner for Hager Pacific Properties.
In addition to fulfilling arduous financial tasks for the billion-dollar real-estate investment firm Hager Pacific, Adam Milstein continued to pursue other business opportunities that would allow him to manifest nonprofit developments for the Jewish community. Nonetheless, in 2000, Milstein and his long-time companion Gila founded the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation to help service a multitude of community needs. Alongside being primarily focused on the objective of maintaining ties between the United States and the nation of Israel to preserve Jewish culture, the Milstein Family Foundation also provides both financial and advisory assistance in medical concerns, Jewish education, professional training for the youth, ending Anti-Semitism, policy research, and so much more.
Yet, most importantly, Adam Milstein ensures that his foundation will forever uphold its key principle of inspiring active philanthropy amongst its community members. By doing so, this key principle helps the foundation to widen the spectrum and availability of opportunities and resources for other aspiring organizations and members.
