Successful Israeli real estate investor and compassionate philanthropist Adam Milstein was recently landed a spot on the list of the World’s Top 50 Most Influential Jews. Born and raised in Haifa, Israel, Milstein had early exposure to the rewarding lifestyle of real estate investors and developers. His father, Hillel Milshtein was a real estate developer who migrated to Israel in 1948, when the State was first founded. As a young man in Israel, Milstein was required to serve his country in the line of duty. He joined the Israeli Defense Forces in 1971, and served during the Yom Kippur War of 1973. Shortly after joining the armed forces, Adam Milstein married Gia Elgrably, in 1974. After earning his undergraduate degree in business and economics at the Technion, he went on to partner with his first teacher real estate, his father.
Happily married and armed with his knowledge and experience in the world of real estate, Milstein packed his wife and two daughters and headed for the United States. Shortly after planting their feet on the soil of the new country they would call home, he went on to continue his education. Milstein attended the University of Southern California, and in 1983 he received his Masters degree in Business Administration. Just as with his undergraduate degree, he wasted no time and quickly began looking for work, and soon began his career as a commercial real estate agent in the United States.
Aside from his accomplishments in the world of real estate, Melstein, with the assistance of his wife, is a compassionate and dedicate philanthropist. Together, the caring duo founded the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation. The organization was established with a goal of empowering students and adolescents in Israel. By educating them about their Jewish roots and history, the foundation hopes to instill pride in each young life they touch. The Israeli-American Council, an organization which he co-founded, recently named Adam Milstein the National Chairman of the organization. With the contributions Milstein has made to the State of Israel, there is no surprise that his name appeared on one of the most prestigious list in Israel.
