Adam Milstein is an Israeli-American living in the United States. He was born in the 1960s in Haifa, Israel. In his young age, he grew up witnessing his nation try to retain its independence by all means possible. He saw the challenges his fellow Jews encountered and decided to do something about it later in life. He served under the Israeli Defense Forces before leaving to attend college. He later moved to the United States in 198os to pursue an MBA from the University of Southern Carolina. After his university education, he was quick to try his hand in the real estate business.
Today, Adam Milstein is the managing partner of Hager Pacific Properties. This real estate company has been instrumental in the initiatives that Milstein supports today. It is through the proceeds of the real estate business that he is now able to support non-profit initiatives. Every year, he gives out about $1 million to various pro-Israeli causes. He is one of the Jews who has introduced the culture of philanthropy in the community. Jews did not have philanthropic organization since almost all the basic needs are offered by the government almost for free.
Adam Milstein is the co-founder and chairman of the Israeli-American Council, a leading activist group that supports initiatives of the Jews. Adam Milstein identifies the biggest threat to Israel today as BDS Movement. This movement is pushing for boycotts, Divestment, and Sanctions. This movement is gaining momentum in Europe and America, some of the places where anti-Semitism had been defeated many years ago.
Adam Milstein equates BDS to anti-Semitism. The hate against Jews has been used as a tool for oppression against the Jews. There are many instances where the community has suffered due to injustices committed based on this hate. No other community has been subjected to discrimination for a long time like the Jews, and that’s why Adam Milstein feels the community needs to come up with a plan that will protect the future of the Jews. Milstein has also pointed out that anti-Semitism is growing mainly among the radical groups in the United States. The radical left and radical right have joined the radical Muslims on this one.
