A colleague’s charitable actions inspired Adam Milstein to become a philanthropist. He was introduced to “ma’aser rishon” by his business partner. “Ma’aser rishon” is a practice where people give 10% of their incomes to charity. It is mostly practiced by the Jews. Following his introduction to this Jewish practice, he founded Gila and Adam Milstein Foundation. He also founded another organization called Sifriyat Pijama B’ America. Both foundations were founded in 2000.
Adam Milstein’s Sifriyat Pijama B’ America provides free Hebrew books each month to Jewish and Israeli American families. Families use these books to teach the traditional Jewish people language and Jewish values to their children. The noble program has reached over 15,000 families.
