Someone who knows all about the heritage of his people and being able to live by the ways he was taught. Adam Milstein was blessed to have lived by his Jewish heritage and came to the United States after being in Israel for his whole life. He was raised in Israel and served the country during the Yom Kippur War. After the war was over, Adam Milstein attended to Technion and graduated in 1978.
After marrying Gila, Adam and Gila moved to the United States. Moving to the states was something that would help Adam expand his knowledge. After arriving in the states, Adam attended the USC to gain the degree he would need to be involved in commercial real estate. Upon graduating in 1983, Adam Milstein was working and after three short years, he opted to head out and be independent from what he was doing. It wasn’t long before Adam was approached by David Hager of Hager Pacific Properties.
While Adam Milstein was enjoying the real estate investment world, he felt as though he was missing something. Each sale or each investment he was actively involved in wasn’t as satisfying as he thought it would be. That is when he decided to become a philanthropist. As soon as he started donating his time to various programs and foundations, Adam started to notice that each sale was becoming more heartfelt.
Adam and his wife believe that others of the community should have the knowledge of their background and should know about the Jewish ways. Sitting on the boards of many organizations and foundations is how Adam and wife Gila stay involved in the Jewish community. When this was not enough for Adam, they decided to open their own foundation. The Adam Milstein Family Foundation works to help bring more Jewish ways to families.
Not only are the two on the board of their own foundation, they also are on the boards of another important foundation. The foundation which donates monthly books in Hebrew are being shipped to more than 15,000 families each month. The books also teach the Jewish values and morals to the families receiving books in the United States.
