Prominent philanthropist Adam Milstein has a calling; his charitable work centers on strengthening the State of Israel and reinforcing the relationship between the United States and Israel. Frequently writing about the need to instill pride in the State of Israel, especially among the younger generation, Milstein believes community involvement and education are the keys to forging a connection to Israel in today’s youth.
Serving as the national chair of the Israeli-American Council (IAC), a group he helped start, Milstein rallies the American Jewish community with youth groups and education about the Jewish state. The IAC coined the term Israeli American to gather former Israeli citizens who have settled in the U.S. permanently and give them a distinct identity.
Also president of the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation, Milstein focuses the foundation’s support on educating college students about their Jewish roots and them inspiring them to advocate for the State of Israel on their campuses. The foundation also supports a number of other causes, including Stand By Me, a Los Angeles charity serving cancer patients and Human Rights Voices, a group which publicizes anti-Israel actions by the United Nations.
When the Jewish Telegraph Agency published their list of the 100 Most Influential Jewish Twitterers, Adam Milstein came in at number 21. The list honors individuals with a large number of followers who tweet about and participate in Twitter discussions regarding Jewish issues.
When he is not serving as a leader in the Jewish community, Milstein is a managing partner with Hager Pacific Properties at their San Fernando Valley office, where he oversees the private real estate investment firm’s property management and financing. A Huffington Post article praises Milstein for his persistence in convincing David Hager to become his partner, which ultimately made him a multi-millionaire and allowed him to become a generous philanthropist.
