Adam Milstein Sits Down With Ideamensch To Discuss His Views

Adam Milstein is a brilliant individual and someone who’s been highly influential in the Jewish communities of America, in fact so much so that he even made the Top 50 list in the Jerusalem Post for 2016. He also sat down for an interview with Ideamensch, a business blog that interviews many entrepreneurs and businessmen.

Adam Milstein is originally from Israel, the son of a building framer and homemaker and the oldest of three sons. Adam has quite an extensive background in real estate having learned the building construction trade from his father and received a bachelor’s degree from the Technion, Israeli Institute of Technology.

Prior to receiving his bachelor’s degree, he served in Israel’s armed services under then Commander Ariel Sharon in the Yom Kippur War of 1973. He married Gila Elgrably not long after returning.

According to Business Wire, after spending several years working various building projects with his father, Adam Milstein decided it was time to further his education and get an MBA from the University of Southern California.

While Adam Milstein saw many talent recruiters on campus during this time, he felt few of them cared about his resume and experience and would shortchange him on salary. So he decided he needed to start his own real estate business and investing in properties, so he and David Hager partnered together to form Hager Pacific Properties.

Adam and Gila later founded the Milstein Foundation to support and become involved with Jewish communities around the US and the world.

Adam is also the Chairman and board member of several organizations including Birthright Israel, the Israeli-American Council (IAC), StandWithUs and Hasbara Fellowships.
