He’s widely considered to be among the most influential Jews in the world. Adam Milstein has been a central player in the development and support of not only Jewish culture in America, but has played a key role in Israeli-American relations over the past two decades.
Adam Milstein is the co-founder of the Israeli-American Council (IAC). In just over a decade, the IAC has grown rapidly to become the largest organization of its kind in the world. The group today claims 250,000 active members and continues to grow at a robust pace.
The mission of the IAC is to preserve Israeli and Jewish identity in the United States and to strengthen the overall Jewish community here. It also works to bolster the historic relationship between the United States and Israel.
Adam Milstein was born in Haifa, Israel in 1952. He grew to manhood there and entered service with the Israeli Defense Forces at age 19 — just in time to serve in the 1973 Yom Kippur War. He served with the forces of general Ariel Sharon in Egypt.
After an honorable discharge from the military, Adam Milstein completed his higher education at the Technion. It was then that he and his young wife, Gila, made the decision to immigrate to America. He completed an MBA at the University of Southern California and then launched his career in real estate investment and development.
Today Adam Milstein is a managing partner with one of the most successful real estate investment firms in California, Hager Pacific Properties. Mr. Milstein has used the financial success he achieved in business to give back to the country and people he loves.
In addition to co-founding the IAC, Milstein created his own philanthropic organization, the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation. Like the IAC, Mr. Milstein’s private foundation has achieved a track record of success — and that’s because it has been effective.
Today Adam Milstein still feels he has a lot of work to do and continues to advocate through the IAC and his foundation to make the world a better place for people of Jewish heritage.
