Adam Milstein is a respected real estate investor and philanthropist, and founder of the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation. He is also the co-founder of the California non-profit called the Israeli-American Council.
Adam Milstein helped to create the Israeli-American Council for three reasons: to bolster the State of Israel and its people, to foster a stronger bond between American and Israeli Jewish residents and to enable a community of over 5.5 million Jewish and Israeli residents to have meaningful dialogue and share experiences with each other. Adam Milstein and the Council believes it’s important for younger generations to make strong bonds for a healthier culture. Adam Milstein has led the Israeli-American Council to new heights, as they encourage social activism, cultural education and connections in the American and Israeli Jewish communities.
Adam Milstein holds his American-Jewish identity close; he was born in Haifa but loves being American too, and aims to share this dual identity with others. He and his wife Gila are active philanthropists. Together they created the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation to help Jewish youth connect with their roots. Adam Milstein divides his time as a Board member for Birthright Israel, StandWithUs, the Jewish Funders Network, AIPAC National Council, Stand By Me and the Israel on Campus Coalition and Hasbara Fellowships. Adam Milstein has devoted his life to philanthropy because it’s his passion. Helping his community connect, combating hate groups and supporting cultural education doesn’t feel like work to Adam – to him it’s a gift to be able to direct his energies in pursuit of a better world. Adam Milstein stands as a role model to all who wish to engage in philanthropic activities because he not only helps fund non-profits, but also does the heavy lifting as a team player.
