Adam Milstein is one man who has demonstrated that with determination and sacrifice, nothing is possible. He is one of the most prominent Israeli-America philanthropists who has devoted a lot of effort to the cause of supporting Israelis and the Israel state in America.
Adam Milstein was born and raised in Haifa before he moved to the United States in 1981 with his family. Before that, Milstein served as a military Officer in the Israeli Defense Force where he fought in the Yom Kippur War. He furthered his post-secondary education at the University of Southern Carolina.
Milstein is the current chairman of the Israeli Council, an organization he co-founded. Besides, he also sits on the board of various organizations including the Adam and Gila Milstein Foundation.
He has sacrificed a big part of his life fighting for the rights of Israelis within and outside borders of Israel.
Other than his philanthropic work, Adam Milstein has also invested heavily in the real estate industry in Los Angeles. He is a managing partner of Hager Pacific Properties (a company valued to be worth over $1 billion).
Philanthropy and Real Estate work
Although his father was a real estate investor, it was not until he arrived in the US that Adam Milstein ventured into the Real Estate industry. He started his career at Hager Pacific Properties after earning an MBA at USC. It was at during that time that he was introduced to philanthropy.
Adam Milstein became successful but he was not satisfied with financial success. He, therefore, decided to dedicate most of his time giving back to the community.
It was at this point that he co-founded the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation to support the various charity organizations and programs.
To say that Adam Milstein is just a leader in the Israeli-American society is not enough.
His philanthropic work has transcended borders in a tremendous way.
His Foundation is dedicated to supporting the people of Israel in America in different areas such as education as well as fostering good relations between the state of Israel and the US.
