Looking to the future, philanthropist Adam Milstein works to bring the spirituality of Judaism together with an understanding and appreciation of the history of Israel. His positive influence in the lives of Israeli-American youth and young professionals continues to strengthen the ties between Jewish People, Israel and this country. Through his many philanthropic endeavors, Adam Milstein pursues projects that will ensure the development and growth of Jewish leadership in today’s society.
Born and raised in Israel, Adam Milstein served in the Israeli Defense Forces during the Yom Kippur War of 1973. He married Gila Elgrably in Haifa, Israel in 1974. While attending the Israeli Institute of Technology’s Technion, Milstein worked with his father in real estate construction and development expansion. He graduated Cum Laude with a BS degree in business and economics and in 1981, the Milstein family moved to California where he continued his studies and received a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from the University of California.
Since the year 2000, Gila and Adam Milstein have focused on the challenges faced by Jewish student leaders on campuses throughout the United States. The Milstein Family Foundation was founded to provide the training, financial support, expertise and knowledge to help foster Jewish pride, create connections within communities and combine the resources of other non-profit organizations working on major Pro-Israeli programs.
The Milstein Family Foundation joined other Jewish and Pro-Israeli organizations for the second time to sponsor a competition giving meme creators an opportunity to win cash prizes with their compelling concepts. This world-wide contest offered a fun way for contestants to convey their support for the Jewish State, and his Website.
Milstein, a co-founder and National Chairman of the Israeli-American Council (IAC), recently watched participants of IAC’s 4th Annual National Convention proudly come together despite their many different backgrounds to express their passion and shared commitment for their homeland, their language, history and culture. This organization involves and challenges Israeli-Americans to become active leaders within their community, and learn more about Adam Milstein.
