Adam Milstein, Making a Career Out of Giving Back

Adam Milstein is mostly a philanthropist. Even as Chairman of the Board for the Israeli American Council (IAC), Adam’s job is to make life better for Israeli-Americans and the Jewish-American Community. Then, there is the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation, an entire organization responsible for empowering our younger generation so they can continue to strengthen Democracy and combat extremism.

 

With his education and business acumen, Adam could have been a high-powered Wall St. investor or a banking magnate with the accumulation of money and power his only goal. Instead, he uses his strengths and skills to improve humanity. As managing partner at Hager Pacific, Adam uses his substantial capital to develop and rehabilitate under-valued real-estate. He then turns the property into a prosperous development that benefits the community and everyone involved.

 

Instead of founding a Fortune 500 company, Adam founded Sifriyat Pijama B’America, a Hebrew and Jewish family literacy program in the United States. The program is responsible for sending out high-quality Hebrew Jewish children’s literature and music to children ages 2 to 8. The books come every month and they are completely free.

 

Adam also serves on the board of StandWithUs, Hasbara Fellowships and the Israel on Campus Coalition (ICC). StandWithUs is an international education organization that serves communities, campuses and libraries. Hasbara Fellowships is a campus activism organization that educates thousands of students on hundreds of campuses.

 

But you don’t have to take my word for it. Adam Milstein is the recipient of several awards and recognitions that showcase his generous and giving nature. In 2016, he was named one of the 25 Most influential people on ‘Jewish Twitter’ by Jewish Telegraph Agency. He was named a Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life in 2015, as well as Humanitarian of the Year by American Friends of Magen David Adom.
