Adam Milstein: Ingenious Businessman with a Sincere Passion for Helping Others

Monday, January 21st, 2019

Adam Milstein is a man who used his childhood experiences that he obtained while growing up in Haifa, Israel to become one of the most influential/philanthropic leaders of the Jewish community. As a child, Milstein’s birthplace in Haifa provided him the privilege of being in one of the largest and most beautiful settings in Israel—a benefit that instilled him with a deep sense of respect and appreciation for his culture. Moreover, in addition to having become culturally impacted by his environment, Milstein was also heavily influenced by the love he received through the rearing by his parents. His mother (a stay-at-home mom) cared for the family and nurtured Milstein with the utmost endearment, while his father (a real estate developer) financially supported the family and taught Milstein the value of hard work. Together, his parents embedded within his subconscious the importance of being compassionate for others—a quality that Milstein inherited that would stick with him for life.

Yet, in addition to being compassionate, bravery was another strong characteristic that Adam Milstein adopted in his youth. At 19, he joined the Israeli Defense Forces out of a personal desire to help protect the nation of Israel against opposing forces who sought to bring harm to the people. After serving in the Yom Kippur War in 1973, Milstein earned a degree in Business Management from the Israel Institute of Technology in 1978 and then relocated to the United States with his wife shortly thereafter. Nevertheless, after arriving to the U.S. in 1981 and residing in California, Milstein returned to school to obtain his second degree (MBA) in business from the University of Southern California. Utilizing his business degrees, Adam Milstein ultimately became a successful businessman in the real estate industry. As a resident of California, he became a managing partner for Hager Pacific Properties (located in Encino, California) where he currently fulfills the responsibility of overseeing all financial matters concerning the real estate company’s billion-dollar property ownership in the U.S.

Nonetheless, being that Adam Milstein was born to be more than just a businessman at heart, he innately took to becoming the philanthropist that his parents’ love had influenced him to be. He wished to enlighten and encourage those of the Jewish community to become leaders to make a positive difference within their lives and the lives of others as well. Therefore, to provide a system of direct aid to the Israeli-American population, Adam Milstein and his wife founded the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation in 2001. Today, the foundation currently provides a multitude of nonprofit services including that of educational training, leadership counseling, medical support, and defense against anti-Semitism.
