Born in Israel, Adam Milstein has created a success story for himself within the United States as a real estate investor. He has not kept his success only for himself; he has made a point of sharing his good fortune with others. He is especially focused on philanthropy that helps Israel and the Jewish people.
Born in Haifa in 1952, Adam Milstein spent his childhood and early adulthood in Israel. Like most Israelis, he served his country in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). During his service, he fought in the Yom Kippur War of 1973.
After his time with the IDF was complete, Adam Milstein attended the Technion. There, he earned a degree in business and economics–something that led to the next step in his career path.
In 1981, he moved to the United States to pursue an MBA at the University of Southern California. After that, he began his career in commercial real estate.
Today, he is a managing partner for the private commercial real estate investment firm Hager Pacific Properties, which controls significant amounts of commercial and industrial real estate in the U.S. This position has helped spell financial success for Adam Milstein, but his success in his new country has not led him to forget the country of his birth or his people. Instead, he has dedicated significant amounts of his time, energy, and money to philanthropic causes.
Adam Milstein’s philanthropic pursuits have been numerous. The thread that links them is their focus on Israel and the Jewish people.
He and his wife established the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation for which he also serves as president. He also served to co-found the Israeli-American Council (IAC), which he also serves as Chairman of the Board. He serves on numerous other boards as well; a small sampling of those include AIPAC National Council, the Jewish Funders Network, and StandWithUs.
Adam Milstein is also noted for his social media activism. That includes a very active presence on platforms LinkedIn and Twitter where he speaks positively about Israel and seeks to stand against a rising tide of antisemitism.
