Adam Milstein has written many articles on the state of Jewish international affairs, and beyond just opinions of the news he’s published independent blogs on the Jerusalem Post, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency and the Jewish News Syndicate. One of his latest articles is about how the Maccabees changed the course of an attempt to assimilate and ultimately purge Jewish culture back in the ancient times, and how Jews today can stand up for their identity. Milstein mentioned that throughout the history of its establishment in 1948, Israel has faced armies of superior numbers but has outsmarted their enemies every time to defeat them and defend the homeland. He says there’s many challenges today to defend the Jewish way and maintain national pride, but he believes that if parents instill pride and courage in their children and children are encouraged to think in even unconventional ways, there’s a bright future for Israel and Jewish-Americans.
Adam Milstein is currently the co-chair of the Milstein Family Foundation, Managing Partner of Hager Pacific Properties and President of the Israeli-American Council. He began his career in 1974 at the Technion Institute after finishing his term in the Israeli Defense Forces, and while completing his bachelor’s degree he also worked with his father in construction. He later helped found Hager Pacific Properties after completing his MBA and picked up experience in commercial real estate brokering. Adam Milstein along with his colleagues David Hager and Robert Neal has helped add millions worth of luxury properties to the firm’s portfolio.
Adam Milstein and his wife Gila started their charity group with the purpose of building unity between Jews who’ve been a part of the Jewish-American community for a long time, and newer Israeli-American generations who’ve felt alienated. Milstein has sought to support organizations that have both conservative and liberal ties, but he’s called for all people in their political affiliations to support what the nation of Israel does. He’s often spoke at University events and at annual conferences hosted by AIPAC, and he and his wife often take high school and college students back to Israel during the summer. Milstein also has ranked in the Jerusalem Post’s list of influential Jews.
