Adam Milstein Discusses Ways Jewish Philanthropists Can Contribute to Connecting the Younger Jewish Generation to Their True Heritage. Adam Milstein, a Jewish real estate investor and philanthropist published an interesting article in the Algemeiner, on February 13th, 2017. He is founder of the Israeli-American Council (IAC) and has dedicated years to the mission of connecting young Jewish people to Israel and their Jewish heritage. Mr. Milstein continues to work diligently with other Jewish philanthropists and leaders in the United States to come up with solutions to tackle the issues causing the disconnection. In a recent Pew Study, data showed an estimated two-thirds of the next generation of Jews have no connection to Israel. A study published by Brandeis University revealed less than half of Jewish college students comprehended questions about Israel.

Mr. Milstein said Jewish leaders and philanthropists must determine how to invest their funds more efficiently and strengthen the United States and Israel alliance. They must also create strategies to ensure future generations stay in touch with Israel. To do this, Adam Milstein said they must respond to the challenges involving the trends by implementing two significant principles, understanding their target audience and to look for young disconnected Jewish people.

To understand the target audience, there is one important fact Adam Milstein mentioned, the non-existence of American Jewish communities. He says over the past 40 years he has seen communities change because of assimilation, immigration, and intermarriage trends. Some of the criteria they should consider when allocating resources are the age of the next generation, affiliation, and American Jewish immigration communities. Milstein said the work of the Israeli-American Council shows how investing funds can release resources to strengthen Israel relationship. They must invest smarter to overcome obstacles blocking their path to come to realization of their complete potential as a people in America.




Adam Milstein is Managing Partner of Hager Pacific Properties and helps to manage more than $2 billion in properties. He heads the San Fernando Valley Office and is responsible for property management, disposition, and financing. Hager is a private commercial real estate investment firm.

David Osio And His Company Are Actively Participating In Philanthropic Efforts

David Osio has been in the industry of investing and real estate for a long time now, and he has built up a rather large reputation for himself, not only for being wealthy and successful, but for being a remarkable philanthropist. He has long been using his success as a way of taking part in humanitarian projects and giving back to the global community when he can. He is also quick to help others and share his knowledge for the business and success. Through his own words and his company, Davos Financial, David advocates to others to follow in his footsteps, not only to be successful, but to share their success and help others with it as well. In this manner, the world will become a better place for everyone and people will be able to find success at a faster rate. David’s knack for helping out and giving back to the community has gone a long way in making him a leader in the industry, not to mention his impeccable work ethic and ability to steadily follow his goals.


This includes real estate, investments, and financial management. His company also recently released a new mobile application for their clients to take use of while they are working. This app gives an individual a bunch of different information they need on a specific property to gauge whether or not they should be interested. It can give projected gains or losses on a property as well as the long term costs for maintenance, including mortgage payments. This tool will go a long way in helping David’s clients make informed decisions.


David Osio has always stuck to the conservative and safe approach when it comes to investing, to minimize the amount of risks he took and could lose from. This payed off obviously, as he has amassed a huge empire for himself and many people come to him seeking his advice. Luckily, David is big on sharing and giving back to others to improve the community for everyone as well as the success people can find. Along with his many contributions to philanthropic projects and charities, he inspires others to follow in his footsteps to make their own contributions to good causes.
