Adam Milstein Earns Second Mention As Influential Jewish Leader

Posted on May 5, 2017

Adam Milstein has been named in several media outlets as an influential leader including the Jerusalem Post’s Top 50 Most Influential Jews list in 2016, and now in Richtopia’s Top 200 Most Influential Philanthropists. The reason he’s made these lists is because he’s made a lot of personal sacrifices to be involved in Jewish organizations that build bridges between Jewish Americans of all political affiliations and creeds and call upon them to support the motherland of Israel. Adam and his wife Gila have accomplished this work primarily through the Milstein Family Foundation, but they’ve also promoted causes through film producers and Jewish American marketing agencies.

 

Adam Milstein’s loyalty to Israel comes from growing up there as a young man and fighting in the Israeli army during the Yom Kippur War. He also worked with his father Hillel in building construction for many years before deciding to move to the US and start his own real estate business. He and David Hager founded Hager Pacific Properties in the 1980s and that company grew into a large commercial and residential real estate broker where Milstein works to finance property acquisitions and mediate deals between buyers, sellers and rentals. Hager Pacific Properties owns millions of dollars in properties across California, Illinois and Texas.

 

Adam Milstein married Gila in 1974 and they have proudly raised three daughters who are also parents to several grandchildren. They started the Milstein Family Foundation in the year 2000 and built it upon three core values that reflect its mission. Active philanthropy means donating their own time and personal aid in addition to money to each charity they support. Path life impact means gearing up programs that are relevant to each age group in their target audience, and philanthropic synergy means consulting with educators and religious leaders to build a strong Jewish American body.

 

Adam Milstein has started several other organizations and served on the boards of groups like the Israeli-American Council, StandWithUs, Hillel International University and several branch campuses, Hasbara Fellowships and Students Supporting Israel among others. He’s given lectures on many campuses and spoken at Jewish summits and forums such as AIPAC. He also writes columns for the Jerusalem Post from time to time.
