Adam Milstein is now in the ranks of some of the world’s elite businessmen, politicians and celebrities. While he may not rank as high as Bill Gates, Madonna, or former presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, he is highly honored to have made the list of World’s Top 200 Philanthropists put out by Richtopia. The work he has done to become named to that list includes raising funds for young college students to go on trips to Israel, raise awareness through various summit meetings about Israel’s important issues, and connect Jewish American families to important cultural education. Adam Milstein is also a real estate investor and entrepreneur who is one of the founders of Hager Pacific Properties.
Adam Milstein’s work at Hager Pacific Properties includes facilitating deals between buying and selling clients of large commercial properties, and acquiring financing for the company’s operations. Prior to becoming Managing Partner at this company, Milstein was in building framing, a profession his father had taken up after moving to Israel in 1948. Adam is the oldest of three sons and is a former member of the Israeli Defense Forces having also served in the Yom Kippur War in 1973. He graduated in business and economics from the Israeli Institute of Technology – Technion in 1978, and 8 years later received his MBA at the University of Southern California.
While Hager Pacific Properties is Milstein’s primary work, his philanthropy has taken center stage since founding the Milstein Family Foundation. The two goals of their foundation are to support Israel first and foremost while making its relationship with the US even better, and to connect and help young Jews find their identity in their love for Israel. The way they accomplish this is through active philanthropy, path life impact and philanthropic synergy which means that the Milsteins are always personally involved with every organization they give to, and are building ties with other business and non-profit Jewish leaders. Adam Milstein became Chairman of the Israeli-American Council not long ago, a pro-Israel organization that is partnered with StandWithUs, Hasbara Fellowships, Students Supporting Israel, Jerusalem U, AIPAC and Stand By Me.
