How Adam Milstein Helps Connect Jewish Americans To Their Roots

Adam Milstein has been one of the most successful real estate investors over the last 30 years and is currently the Managing Partner at Hager Pacific Properties, LLC. But he’s also a leader of Jewish-American philanthropy that he has been striving to use as a unifying tool in his community. Much of this is channeled through the Milstein Family Foundation that he and his wife Gila started about 17 years ago, and also through the Israeli-American Council where he serves as president and chairman. Milstein’s work includes teaching Jewish-American families Hebrew through various publications.

The reason Adam Milsten sitarted all this is because he said that Israelis who left their home nation for the US or somewhere else, regardless of the reason were often considered outcasts. Likewise they also had trouble fitting into the Jewish Community in the US if they weren’t wealthy. Adam Milstein has been working through his support groups to change the perception of American Israelis and to help Jewish Americans rally behind Israel’s interests. Milstein considers himself neither liberal or conservative on Jewish political matters and has met with community leaders on both sides of the aisles.

Adam Milstein was born in Israel in 1952, just four years after his parents had moved there with the first wave of Jews to resettle the land in 1948. He worked in construction with his father for several years while also serving in the Israeli Defense Forces in the Yom Kippur War of 1974. This is also when he met his wife Gila.

Milstein got his bachelor’s degree in business and economics at the Technion Institute, and then relocated to Los Angeles in 1981 to get his master’s degree at USC. He cofounded Hager Pacific Properties several years later and over the course of his time there has amassed billions in commercial and residential properties in the company portfolio. Milstein has spoken at many national Israeli conferences including AIPAC. He also takes young college students on trips to Israel through the Birthright Israel program and supports several other campus activist groups. He also is a regular contributor to the Jerusalem Post. Follow Adam

Orlando, Florida is another city that has some excellent suburbs for young people looking to start a family. Samuel Strauch says that the suburb of Vista East is especially appealing because of its relatively cheap housing when compared to the city of Orlando and even some other suburbs. The town has better than average schools and public facilities such as pools, parks and libraries. It is perfect for young families. Suburbs such as Vista East are also a smart choice for new families because their housing price is more stable than Orlando’s is. When living in the suburbs of Orlando, you are not really missing out on much either as you can always drive to your favorite amusement park any time.
