Adam Milstein is a spokesperson for Jewish-American charity and activist groups, and he’s a frequent contributor to the Jerusalem Post, the Jewish News Syndicate and the Times of Israel. A subject he’s been dealing with and writing on in the Times of Israel is antisemitism and who today’s leading perpetrators are. Adam Milstein says former Bernie Sanders campaign contributors joining Muslim activist Linda Sarsour have been preaching antisemitic rhetoric in different forums on college campuses and in town hall meetings. He’s said progressive liberalism has often presented itself as a benefactor and a champion of diversity, but its Muslim allies have an anti-Israeli agenda they’re pushing. He’s said that both young and old Jews around the world have to be ready to fight against this rhetoric and instill pride in Judaism more than ever now.
Adam Milstein was born in Haifa, Israel but later immigrated to the US to complete graduate school. He was proud to serve in the defense forces during the Yom Kippur War against Egypt in 1973, and it was then that he met and later married his wife Gila. He worked in building construction and also ran a side business selling art while attending the Technion Institute, and after completing graduate school in the US he became the cofounder and Managing Partner of Hager Pacific Properties. This company is one of the largest real estate broker firms in the US.
Adam Milstein dedicates most of the time he spends outside of the real estate business to active philanthropy which is one of the core values of the Milstein Family Foundation. He and his family give not only of their paychecks but also join the grassroots activists volunteering personal time and energy to every group their foundation supports. One of the largest groups partnering with the foundation is the Israeli-American Council which has council leaders of various business, political and religious backgrounds who do outreach into Jewish communities, and the IAC also hosts annual conferences to speak on Jewish issues. Milstein is also the founder of Sifriyat Pijama B’America, a Hebrew program that’s self-teaching for Jewish families that also includes children’s stories.
