Adam Milstein is an Israeli native who evolved over the course of his life to become one of the most influentially virtuous leaders that the nation has ever had. As a child, Milstein was taught by his parents to honor and love his family and culture and this inevitably became a teaching that developed into a passion for Milstein. Moreover, being that Milstein’s cultural rearing had also forced him to bear witness to multiple economic, political, and social misfortunes for the people of Israel, his compassion and extreme virtuosity as an upstanding individual would not permit him to idly sit back and do nothing to help himself and others. Therefore, Adam Milstein did what he thought was most beneficial to help his family and fellow Israeli brethren at the time by signing up with the Israeli Defense Forces at 19. After partaking in a courageous battle (Yom Kippur War of 1973) to help Israel prevail against opponents, Milstein then knew that his purpose in life was to fulfill the role of a cultural Preservator.
Following his decision to educate himself at the Israel Institute of Technology to graduate with a Business Management degree, Milstein chose to move to the U.S. where he would have the accessible opportunity to teach Israeli-Americans the value that lie within their heritage. Nevertheless, that’s when Adam Milstein and his wife Gila came up with the idea to create a nonprofit organization that would allow them to service the welfare of the community—the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation. Created in 2000 by the couple, the MFF has played a huge role in inspiring the growth and social maintenance of the Jewish community by supplying the essentials of education, medical care, and financial funding to pro-Israel projects. Furthermore, the MFF also strives to serve as a mentoring system by catering to the youth by teaching them to become professional leaders in society and by establishing association such as the Campus Allies Mission to Israel to inspire college students of all backgrounds to become pro-Israel activists. By working with the youth, Adam Milstein hopes to rid the issue of anti-Semitism in the community and create an environment that is less toxic to the expression of the human spirit.
