Adam Milstein is an Israeli-American who has experienced a lot of life to arrive at a level where he is now in the position to be philanthropic helping many Jewish causes. Adam Milstein and his wife, Gila are founders of the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation. Through the foundation they strive to strengthen the Israeli relationship with the U.S., the state of Israel and the Jewish People at large.
Adam Milstein was born in Haifa, Israel and with his wife now lives in Encino, California. He received his Bachelor of Science degree at the Israeli Institute of Technology in Israel and he received his Masters Degree in Business Administration at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. He went on to excel in real estate investing through his company, Hager Pacific Properties. His success in real estate led to his philanthropic efforts today.
Hager Pacific Properties maintains a focus on buying and rehabilitating properties. The company buys multi-family properties, retail, industrial and office buildings. Adam Milstein obtained his interests in real estate from his father, Hillel. Hillel Milstein worked as a building framer in Israel. While Adam attended college, he helped his father expand the family’s real estate business in construction and development.
Having gotten an early introduction to the real estate fundamentals from his father, his first job in California was as a real estate salesman. There he gained inside knowledge of the marketplace in the U.S. He added what he learned in Israel and his business administration education. This gave Milstein all the tools he needed to aim high in real estate. His current and previous experience, plus his education paid off. As of 2009 it was estimated that he and his wife are now worth upwards of $147 million and more
Adam and Gila Milstein use their wealth to provide support to causes they believe in, such as programs that are tailored for Jewish children, adolescents, and adults. They also like to work with other philanthropic organizations to obtain shared goals. Adam Milstein and his foundation offer both funding and guidance to many groups that works to lift up and support positive Jewish and Israeli causes.
