Adam Milstein’s Goal is to Build Lasting Relationships through the Milstein Foundation

One of entrepreneur Adam Milstein’s favorite software programs to use is Constant Contact, software for listing all your contacts and organizing them into a searchable index. That’s because he believes every person he comes into contact with at either his company, Hager Pacific Properties, or his non-profit work at the Milstein Family Foundation is vital. Adam Milstein is committed to building relationships across the Jewish-American community and with US leaders that last, and that strengthen the alliance between the US and the nation of Israel. Through the Milstein Family Foundation, Adam and his wife Gila have supported activities on college campuses, in synagogues, day schools and through fine arts organizations that have promoted a strong Israeli state. They are actively involved in every group they give financially to.

Adam Milstein was born in 1952 to a family that had moved to the nation of Israel the very year it was established in 1948. He joined the Israeli Defense Forces when his time came and fought under future Prime Minister Ariel Sharon in the Yom Kippur War. He completed his undergraduate education at the Technion Institute of Technology in Haifa, Israel. He worked with his father in real estate construction projects for a few years, and then took his wife Gila and two daughters to the US. They had a third daughter after moving there.

After completing his master’s at USC, Adam Milstein decided to go into commercial real estate as a broker. A few years later he and several other partners decided to form their own investment group known as Hager Pacific Properties. Under Adam Milstein’s leadership, this company has amassed a portfolio of million-dollar residential and commercial properties in California, Illinois and Texas. Milstein has been the driving force behind many deals throughout his time at Hager Pacific Properties and more information click here.

The most important work Adam Milstein has done is through the Milstein Family Foundation, and more so for the Jewish-American families who he and Gila have touched through their work. They started Sifriyat Pijama B’America to teach these families the Hebrew language and pass on stories of Jewish culture and history. They have also worked with college students to build coalitions that fight anti-Semitism and even sponsor summer trips to Israel and learn more about Adam.
