Adam Milstein is a man whose actions prove that the world can indeed be impacted by the power of one individual. In addition to lending his voice to dispel the anti-Semitism that has been brought against the Jewish population, Milstein has also established a multitude of pro-Israel organizations that collectively aim to support and defend the culture of the Israeli-American community. In so saying, his arrival to the United States in 1981 from Israel proved to be a life-changing decision because it signified the point in his life that his switch from being a pupil to inspirational leader began.
Upon settling in California, Adam Milstein made the immediate decision to further invest within his business education that he had previously started while living in Israel. His school of choice was the University of Southern California and having enrolled to be a student there, he studied business courses to earn his MBA in 1983. Moreover, with a passion deeply embedded in the application of business, Adam Milstein sought to employ his knowledge in the field to generate solid career opportunities for himself that would bestow him the philanthropic privilege to assist others in his community. Nevertheless, his financial management obligations as Hager Pacific Properties’ managing partner—a position he obtained through diligence—additionally encouraged and enabled him to acquire business affiliations with prominent organizations that would help support his pro-Israel cause.
As an active board member in the international organization StandWithUs, Adam Milstein upholds his duty to ensure that all media information released about conflicts in the Middle East are correct. Alongside the Jewish community’s benefits from that organization, Adam Milstein united with the Israel on Campus Coalition and the Hasbara Fellowships organization to help end anti-Semitic acts via the promotion of pro-Israel activism across over 100 college campuses in the United States. However, in efforts to be of even greater assistance to the Israel-American population and to feel more satisfied with the execution of his mission, Milstein co-founded the Israeli-American Council and the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation to promote active leadership, philanthropic synergy, and the preservation of cultural ties to Israel.
