How Adam Milstein’s efforts are impacting the lives of the Jews in the U.S

Adam Milstein is one of the most known Israeli figures in the U.S. He is a successful entrepreneur, a philanthropist, and a pro-Israel advocate. He has been named as one of the most influential people on Jewish Twitter and was ranked among the top 100 people, positively impacting Jewish life by an American-based Jewish newspaper, The Algemeiner.

Milstein was born in Israel in 1952 soon after the state was formed. After serving his mandatory service in the Israeli defense forces, he started his higher education at the Technion, the oldest university in Israel, where he pursued a degree in business and economics.

While still at the university, he had joined his father in his real estate business, and that is most likely what inspired his interest in the real estate industry. He migrated into the U.S in 1981 where he began his career in real estate as a sales agent after his MBA from the University of South California.

Today, he is a managing partner at one of the largest real estate firms in Los Angeles, Hager Pacific. This company owns and manages close to 100 properties in the U.S including 300 apartments and other commercial property.

Adam Milstein has been on the forefront of championing Israeli-American ties especially marshaling U.S support for Israel. He is the chairman of the board of Israeli American Council, the largest American Jewish organization in the United States. This organization endeavors to strengthen the state of Israel and to preserve the values of Jewish people living in the United States.

He is also the founder and president of his family foundation, Adam, and Gila Milstein Family Foundation that sponsors the education of young people to identify with their roots and to be more connected with the state of Israel. His foundation also supports many charities across America.
