Adam Milstein is committed to helping the Jewish American communities and encouraging students to get involved with Jewish causes and Israeli activism. His Milstein Family Foundation has not only given a lot of money to these groups but has also supplied educational resources to the Jewish American community. He made the Jerusalem Post’s Top 50 Most Influential Jews list in 2016 and just a few weeks ago made the Richtopia Top 200 Most Influential Do Gooders of this year. That list includes notable personalities such as Elton John, Oprah Winfrey, Warren Buffet and even the recent US President Barack Obama. Milstein has given back to Israel because of what the nation has meant to him.
Adam Milstein is an entrepreneur who teamed up with David Hager and Robert Neal to build Hager Pacific Properties. He didn’t have a lot of cash flow to work with at the outset of building this company, but as the company acquired more assets and had more resources to work with it became a major broker in commercial real estate. Today Hager Pacific Properties owns millions in assets in properties across California, Texas and Illinois.
Prior to becoming a commercial real estate broker, Adam Milstein was a soldier and student at the Technion, Israeli Institute of Technology. He grew up in Israel after his parents had moved there from Latin America and served in the armed forces during the 1973 Yom Kippur War against Egypt. He completed his bachelor’s degree at the Technion in 1978 and also ran a business part time selling art while attending there. He married Gila Elgrably in 1974 and in 1981 he moved with her and his then two daughters to the US to complete graduate school at USC. Many years after founding Hager Pacific Properties he was running his own foundation known as the Milstein Family Foundation.
Adam Milstein has also been a founding member of the Israeli-American Council, a philanthropy that builds ties with Jewish American fellowships and calls on leaders to put Israel as a top priority. He’s also on the boards of Hasbara Fellowships, Israel on Campus, Students Supporting Israel and StandWithUs. Milstein has been a speaker at AIPAC and other summits.
