All over the world, within almost every industry, there are great people that are making efforts to make our world a better place to live in. One of these people is Adam Milstein, an Israeli-American who has spent countless amounts of time, energy and not a small sum of money through philanthropic efforts, all in the effort of making positive changes.
Adam was born in Haifa, Israel and was the eldest child. His father served his country as a combat sailor during the fight for Israeli independence. He spent his early years of life in KiryatMotzkin before entering the Israeli army as a part of his mandatory military service during 1973 and took part in the Yom Kippur War, fighting on the Egyptian front.
After Adam completed his military service, he enrolled himself into the Technion, a public research university based in Haifa, Israel. During his time in academics, Milstein received a Bachelor’s Degree of Science in business and economics. Adam spent a large portion of his later years of university education with his father, assisting him in growing his real estate development and construction business. During this time Adam learned the ins and outs of real estate.
In 1974 Adam Milstein went on to marry his wife, Gila, a graduate of the Rothschild Hospital Nursing School and a former officer in the Israeli army, before moving his family to the United States. After moving his family to America, Adam Milstein went on to acquire a Master of Business Administration from the University of Southern California. Soon after he would go on to become a commercial real estate sales agent, leading him to become a managing partner of Hager Pacific Properties.
In the year 2000, Adam Milstein and his wife Gila established the Adam and Gina Milstein Family Foundation, an organization that focuses on maintaining and enhancing the special ties that America has with Israel.
Another large aspect of the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation is their work with the Jewish community in America. They assist young members of the Jewish community, helping them acquire education and establish a connection with their roots in Israel.
