Israel is a nation of unrest in 2017, and the United States is one of their only allies. Adam Milstein, who was born in Israel and now lives in central California, is one of Israel’s greatest supporters and is dedicated to community service and philanthropy for Israelis in America and around the world. As recognition for his remarkable service, his name has been added to the Top 200 Philanthropists and Social Entrepreneurs this year.
Adam Milstein and his family moved to Los Angeles so that he could attend University of Southern California where he received his MBA. After graduating, he co-founded Hager Pacific Properties, which has become a $20 billion real estate firm with properties both owned and managed worldwide.
Milstein has earned his own esteemed position in real estate investments, but he told the media that he feels the most satisfied with his day to day accomplishments when he is helping other people. He has focused his efforts on the Jewish community and incorporates this philanthropy into his everyday life.
Milstein’s first priority is his family, and he and his wife are the founders of Milstein Family Foundation, which helps students understand their Jewish heritage bringing them tremendous educational experiences.
They also founded Sifriyat Pijama B’America, an agency that supplies literature for the Jewish population and the Israeli-American Council, which is one of Milstein’s favorite foundations because it supports the relationship between the United States and Israel.
Milstein does not refrain when protecting the Jewish people or supporting the oppressed people around the world. With a history of growing up, serving in the Israeli Army and attending Technion Institute in Israel, Milstein has a unique understanding of the marginalized social groups in the U.S. and is able to uniquely advocate on their behalf.
Adam Milstein is a leader amongst the Jewish community internationally, and he sits on the Boards of such organizations as Birthright Israel, StandWithUs, Hasbara Fellowships, Israel on Campus Coalition, the Jewish Funders Network, Stand By Me and the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. Mr. Milstein is making a significant presence in and for the Jewish population.
