Philanthropy, which means etymologically, is one of the most significant actions someone can adopt to their lives and careers. Generosity teaches the love for humanity and the urge to help people in need and communities who need the aid of some sort, many times not even involving money.
Adam Milstein is a philanthropist and has helped the Jewish people countless times. Not only that, but he has achieved his millions, as he has become a very influential real estate investor and leader.
Having been born in Israel, from an Israeli family, Adam has in his blood the urges to help communities who are suffering from prejudice, poverty or some sort of problem. Having experienced the Yom Kippur War during his childhood, Adam knows how it feels like to feel like you are alone in the world.
To understand what led him to philanthropy, let’s analyze his path that led him to the United States.
He came to America in 1981, but before that, Adam graduated from the Technion in 1978 and was studying to become an outstanding commercial real estate investor, a dream that he fulfilled in Southern California.
In 1983, adam partnered with Hager Pacific Properties, and began using his acquired real estate knowledge to invest in properties, commercial centers, buildings, and start developing his own career path by his merit.
Adam is more than just a philanthropist and real estate investor, as he also is very focused on helping his Israeli community. He is the co-founder and National Chairman of the Israeli-American Council, that is responsible for maintaining peace and healthy relationships between the two societies. Being a chairman of the board of that council, he is directly responsible for the peace between his new nation and the community he was born in.
Apart from the council, Adam is on the board of directors of organizations like the Israel on Campus Coalition and the Jewish Funders Network, where investors like him gather and improve the reach of their community. He is also on the board of AISH Los Angeles and AIPAC National Council.
Adam is married to his wife Gila, and he helped the foundation of the SifriyatPijamaB’America, which gives books written in Hebrew every month, for free, to anyone who wants to learn more about the Jewish culture.
