Adam Milstein: Taking on a Role Most Vital to the Preservation of Jewish Culture

Just by analyzing Adam Milstein’s list of lifetime achievements, one can conclude that Milstein is a man who is most passionate about his family, career, and culture. With every step that he has taken to become the accomplished and prominent businessman/philanthropist that he is today, he has persistently enforced maximum effort and based his life’s choices upon their extent of benefit to the Jewish community. Nonetheless, if one were to peer even further into Adam Milstein’s life, one would deduce that he possesses the characteristics of heroism, wisdom, and integrity—three key traits that have significantly enabled him to excel beyond the power of one person to set a cultural shift in the world.

 

When Milstein left the State of Israel and came to the United States in 1981, he had the notion that he was going to make great changes in his life and the lives of others. Only this time around, his method for change would be much more effective than his days of combat in the Israeli Defense Forces. After having previously earned his Business Management degree in Israel and going back to school to acquire his MBA from the University of Southern California in 1983, Adam Milstein was destined to become an influential figure in society. He then applied his business education to the real estate industry and upon doing so his career began to set into place. Over a short period of time, Milstein transformed himself from being a novice real estate sales agent to being one with great proficiency in the field as a Managing Partner for Hager Pacific Properties. Moreover, once establishing himself as a Managing Partner to one of the largest real estate investment firms in the U.S., Milstein had proven to himself that he was qualified to manage something much greater than real estate.

 

With his wife at his side, Adam Milstein configured an alternative method (as oppose to war combat) to target the issues that involved the Israeli-American community. To bring about more leadership roles in the community, Adam Milstein co-founded the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation in 2000. The main objective behind the Milstein Family Foundation is to promote the importance of active philanthropy and life impact by working with community members (particularly the youth) to encourage leadership via the provision of Jewish education, job training, and pro-Israel organization funding. Furthermore, in addition to working with other organizations like StandWithUs, Israel on Campus Coalition, and Hasbara Fellowships to promote pro-Israel activism across the U.S., Adam Milstein stretched his limits a bit further with his co-founding of the Israeli-American Council (IAC) in 2007. Likewise, since 2007, the IAC has served its purpose in cementing the identity of Israeli-Americans with their Jewish heritage as well as fortifying the bond between the State of Israel and the United States.
