Keeping a connection to one’s roots is important to many people, but unfortunately for some people, finding that connection may be beyond their means or they may not know where to begin. This is where Adam Milstein comes to the rescue. Known for his real estate savvy with his position of managing partner with Hager Pacific Properties and the $2 billion portfolios in properties they manage across the country, Milstein is also a noted philanthropist.
In an effort to help Jewish children stay connected to their Jewish roots, he started the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation. The foundation works with students across the country strengthen their connection to Israel and assist in helping these kids experience their heritage directly. These acts of giving have landed Adam Milstein on the Philanthropists & Social Entrepreneurs Top 200 list, in recognition of his dedication to the Jewish community.
His foundation isn’t the only way that Adam Milstein helps keep connections to his native Israel either. He also founded the Israeli-American Council, which works to improve relations between the United States and Israel. Milstein works determinedly to help lead its growth and the effect of policies determining issues in the evolving American foreign policy concerning Israel and Jewish relations overall. He has also assisted on several other Jewish empowerment ventures, such as the Hasbara Fellowship, StandWith Us, AIPAC National Council, the Israel on Campus Coalition, Jewish Founders network, Birthright Israel and AISH Los Angeles.
