Adam Milstein was raised in Israel by two devoted Jewish patriots. His parents had moved to Israel from Latin America back when it first became a recognized nation-state, and Adam’s father even fought in the first war of independence. His father retired from the military and became a building framer by the time Adam was born, and the job often had young Adam and his family moving. Adam helped in the business when he became older, and then completed his mandatory military duties in the Yom Kippur War, serving in then field commander Ariel Sharon’s unit. After completing his service, he returned home and married Gila Elgrably.
Adam enrolled at the Israeli Institute of Technology, or Technion as it’s known as and completed studies in business and real estate. He worked with his father for several years buying and developing properties around the country. He then decided to get his MBA, so he relocated to the US and completed grad school at USC. He then entered the US real estate market and started working for Hager Pacific Companies. He is now Managing Partner at that company.
Adam and Gila started the family foundation in the year 2000, and Adam has also spoken at many forums and political conferences. Various groups that Adam is involved with include AIPAC, the Israeli-American Council, Stand With Us, Hasbara Fellowships and Israel on Campus Coalition. Adam is also the father of three, and now grandfather of three.
