Adam Milstein: Proclaiming a Destiny of Philanthropic Fulfillment

To just say that Adam Milstein is an accomplished individual is simply an understatement. It is an understatement because Adam Milstein is in fact a man who has acquired several professional titles and enforced multiple social good achievements that have rendered him to be within a league of men of extraordinary talent and heroism. In the past, Milstein was primarily recognized for being a war hero. But as of today, Milstein is best known for his passionate pursuits as an intellectual businessman, endeavoring philanthropist, and cultural leader.

Before making his way to the United States in 1981, Adam Milstein had served in the Israeli Defense Forces as a way of displaying his gratitude for his Israeli culture. Moreover, Milstein’s participation in the Yom Kippur War as a young individual was an act that had such great influence over him that he desired to dedicate his life to a journey of philanthropic fulfillment—a journey that would enable him to share his cultural experiences, uplift lives, and teach others to do the same. Upon arriving in the United States, Milstein made the initial commitment to complete his business education by receiving his MBA from the University of Southern California in 1983. Nonetheless, it wasn’t too far after that that Milstein had established a professional business career in real estate. Milstein’s business career entailed him fulfilling managerial obligations as a Managing Partner for Hager Pacific Properties—an affluent private real estate firm that owns over $2 billion in commercial property in the United States.

In addition to his success as a real estate businessman, Milstein’s life began to simultaneously shift towards that of becoming an endeavoring philanthropist. To better assist the needs of the Israeli-American population, Adam Milstein not only decided to establish his own foundation, but he decided to serve in the place of a cultural/societal leader by lending his voice to dispel anti-Semitism and to correct misinformation concerning the nation of Israel. Likewise, the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation (founded in 2000) has served its purpose in uplifting the Israeli-American community by teaching members to become active philanthropists themselves, supplying the community with Jewish education and medical resources, and training the youth to be professional leaders in their communities.
