Adam Milstein wrote an article in early April which addresses the need for supporting young Jewish people. He explains that this is because they are the future, and those who will take on tough leadership roles in order to keep the Jewish community safe and thriving. Milstein notes that he meets these young people every day through his work as a philanthropist, and is encouraged by them, knowing that the next generation will be stronger than the one before it.
To make his point, Adam Milstein remembers the heroes of the past. He names Ben-Gurion, Golda Meir, and Henrietta Szold. Just a few of many influential people, he talks about their bravery and dedication and how it is being passed on to the youths of today.
Of course, would the community be without Adam Milstein himself?
Adam Milstein was born in Israel to Eva and Hillel Milshtein, as their first son. During the 1973 Yom Kippur War, Adam Milstein joined the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) and after that, he enrolled in the Israeli Institute of Technology. In 1978, he earned his Bachelor’s of Science degree in business and economics. He would go on to receive a Master of Business Administration degree in 1983 from the University of Southern California in Los Angeles.
During the time in between degrees, Milstein married Gila Elgrably and brought their two young daughters to the United States, where they would have another daughter be born.
Together, Adam and Gila Milstein would co-found the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation. This foundation works with a wide range of organizations by providing them charitable and philanthropic services with the goal of strengthening the Jewish people, the State of Israel, and the U.S.-Israel relationship.
Milstein is also the chair of national expansion for the Israeli-American Council, of which he is a co-founder.
Adam Milstein is a very productive person and important leader in the Jewish community. He has much to offer the young people who will, in turn, help shape the world into a better place.
