Adam Milstein was born Haifa, Israel in 1952. He is a successful real estate investor having been brought up by his father who was a famous real estate developer. In 1971, Adam joined the Israeli Defense Forces for his mandatory service before he proceeded to Technion where he acquired his Bachelor of Science degree in business and economics. During the holidays, Adam used to assist his father in expanding his real estate business and this greatly shaped his experience in his future career. In 1983, Adam acquired his Masters of Business Administration from the University of Southern California. Afterward, Adam was employed as a sales agent in a commercial real estate firm based in Southern California.

Besides his involvement in investing, Adam Milstein is also actively involved in charitable acts. In 2000, Adam and his wife Gila founded the Adam and Gila Milstein Foundation. The organization sponsors young student’s education. Adam and his wife believe that through the sponsorship provided, the young students are in a position to take pride in their roots, connect with the State of Israeli and advocate for their people. The two also founded the Sifriyat Pijama B’America, an organization that freely provides books to the Jewish-Israel-American in the U.S on a monthly basis.

Adam is also a founding father and seating chairman of the Israeli-American Council, one of the fastest growing organization based in the U.S. Additionally, Adam seats on the boards of more than seven groups which are associated with his Jewish community. Currently, Adam is the managing partner of Hager Pacific Properties, a firm that specializes in acquiring, reconstructing and repositioning properties. As the manager, he supervises the company’s disposition and accounting.

Adam and his wife firmly believe that most of the Jewish and pro-Israel organizations are disadvantaged by their instincts against interconnections. The couple takes a firm stand on the need to create a network of the organizations for the sake of achieving positive goals. Adam believes that when different organizations interconnect, they empower each other as well as create a force multiplier which means success in their goals. Today, Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation acts as a connector between many organizations based in the U.S with more than 58 being listed on their website.
