Adam Milstein is a successful Israeli-American businessman and activists with strong ties to both Israel and the United States. He was born in Haifa and fought in the Israel Defense Forces during the Yom Kippur War. He later moved to the United States, becoming a successful real estate investor, the managing partner of Hagar Pacific Properties.
Because of his dual background, Adam Milstein has made it his mission to strengthen political and economic ties between both his countries, the United States and Israel. He also maintains a strong interest and pride in his ethnic, Jewish background. Therefore, he works tirelessly to remind Israeli-Americans and Jewish Americans of their cultural roots, and to strengthen their support for the state of Israel. For example, he and his wife Gila co-founded an organization which simply gives Hebrew language books to Israeli-Americans, Sifriyat Pijama B’America.
But many people oppose this mission, and so Adam Milstein is a prolific writer about the subjects. And, because some of the opposition to Israel is based on modern expressions of antiSemitism, he often addresses that issue. Many of these articles are published in The Jerusalem Post, and available on its website. He also actively opposes the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) Movement.
On his website, Adam Milstein explains how his philosophy is based on three principles: active philanthropy, life path impact and philanthropic synergy. He explains that his charitable giving and his political activism are integrated to strengthen the Jewish people, strengthen the state of Israel and to solidify the relationship between the United States and Israel.
To support these many causes, the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation supports many different organizations related to Jewish identity and pride, and support for the state of Israel. Milstein also co-founded the Israeli-American Council. He now serves as the National Chairman of this organization. Its mission is to unite and strengthen the Israeli-American people and American Jewish community. They aim to grow the feeling of Jewish identity in younger generations and to solidify and increase the political ties between Israel and the United States. It is the fastest growing Jewish organization in the United States. click here
