Adam Milstein is a recognizable leader in the Jewish community. He is a strong supporter of Israeli Americans and a successful philanthropist. In March 2018, he discussed the importance of each of these roles with an editor of the Jewish Journal. A brief summary of that article appears below.
The main message from Adam Milstein was that anti-Semitism in America is growing and the community needs new and unique strategies to overcome this sentiment. He spoke of the necessity to build “Israeliness”, which is a strong connection to the culture, the food, and the religion. He is accepting this challenge because he believes that since he is an Israeli himself, he is extremely qualified to lead this movement.
Another one of Adam Milstein’s passions is philanthropy. With his wife Gila, he began the Israeli-American Council (IAC) which is a national non-profit organization providing programming and tuition subsidies for students. The IAC also supports a number of other organizations and charitable causes that focus on strengthening the cause of Jewish people and the Israeli state.
Adam Milstein was born in Israel and came to the United States to complete his education. He obtained his MBA from USC and worked his way up the real estate ladder to become a managing partner at Hager Pacific Properties. He oversees the company’s financing and property management divisions and has led the firm to a portfolio valued at $2 billion. This real estate company currently manages over 100 properties that include commercial, industrial, and residential concerns.
Devoting himself to two professional passions is the ultimate motivation for Adam Milstein. He will use his involvement with these organizations to continue to support the concerns of Israeli Americans. He is committed to moving America toward a more pro-Israel attitude and he will keep working toward that goal.
