Adam Milstein is not only dedicated to his position as a real estate investor for Hager Pacific Properties, but he also puts a large part of his life into pursuing many different philanthropical efforts in order to change the world for the better. More specifically, the efforts of Milstein revolve around Judaism and the state of Israel. With an intense love for both Israel and the United States, he is dedicated to strengthening the relationship between the 2 countries on many different levels.
The native of Haifa, Israel joined the Israel Defense Forces in 1971 and was called into action during the Yom Kippur War in 1973. After finishing his time in the military, he attended the Israel Institute of Technology where he earned his business and economics degree in 1978. While Adam Milstein was attending Technion, he helped his father, who was also a real estate developer, with the family business in order to help it expand.
Before graduating from Technion, Adam Milstein married the love of his life, Gila, in 1974. The 2 immigrated to the United States in 1981 where he was able to earn an MBA from the University of Southern California in 1983. The 2 have 3 daughters together as well as 3 grandchildren and currently live in Encino, California. The 2 co-founded the Milstein Family Foundation that works to advocate for Israel and the Jewish people by giving young professionals and students pride in their heritage and homeland.
The Milstein Family Foundation has partnered with the American-Israel Educational Foundation which is part of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. The efforts through this organization not only work with Jewish students, but they also encourage their Christian, Latino, and African American student allies to join in on the efforts to advocate for Israel. Adam Milstein and his wife created what is known as the Campus Allies Mission which is aimed at activists who have not been to Israel but support the cause despite not being Jewish themselves. The Milstein Family Foundation has provided funding and staff support for an app called Talk Israel which works to bring the community together.
