In the late 1940’s Israel was a place to immigrate to, as it had just formed as an officially recognized state. Adam Milstein’s parents were some of those who immigrated from Mexico and Argentina in search of a more peaceful and opportunistic life. Even though Milstein was not officially Israeli he served in the Israeli Defense Forces mandatory enlistment. Shortly thereafter Adam Milstein earned his bachelors degree from the Israel Institute of Technology (Technion) with a major in business and economics. Adam’s father, Hillel, was a real estate developer and began mentoring Adam at a young age.
In 1981, Adam and his wife Gila moved to America in pursuit of a better life. He immediately enrolled in the University of Southern California where he earned his masters in business administration, which would help his real estate career immensely. After many years of hard work and dedication Adam Milstein became a managing partner at Hager Pacific in 2011. Adam continues to elevate his career and improve Hager’s reputation and clientele. Hager Pacific manages more than 100 properties and over $1 billion in assets in the United States alone.
Adam Milstein and his wife Gila were fortunate enough to succeed in America and decided to share their success and wealth. In 2011, Adam and his wife started The Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation. The foundation provides education and support to students who wish to learn about the struggles and untrue stigmas affecting the Middle East, Jewish people and the state of Israel today. Adam Milstein is involved with several other charitable organizations that help Israeli’s hoping to earn a better life in America. In 2015, Adam Milstein co-founded and became the Chairman of the Board for the Israeli American Council. This council educates and ensures that Israeli’s entering America keep their Israeli identities, values and national pride. Adam and his wife are strong believers in the vital role that the Jewish-American community plays in Americas growth and overall wellbeing. One way Adam and Gila Milstein are accomplishing their aim to educate Isaraeli’s in America is through the SifriyatPijamaB’America foundation. This foundation provides young Israeli children and their families with Hebrew literature, books and music that are used to educate children on their Jewish heritage.
