Adam Milstein is probably the most influential American of Jewish origin currently. His efforts in preserving the identity of the Jewish community is like none other. He has passionately pursued the cause, and the results he has so far are impressive.
Milstein came to the United States in 1981 in search of better opportunities. He first came to pursue higher education at the University of North Carolina. After completing his MBA in 1983, he stayed on and started working in the real state sector. He got an opportunity to work with the Hager Pacific Properties, a real estate company which he now leads as a managing partner.
After success in the real estate business sector, he decided to more especially with giving back to the community. He was intrigued by something he saw when growing up in Israel. In Israel, there were no philanthropic organizations. All essential services were offered by the government, and there seemed like there was no need for philanthropic work.
In the United States, Milstein found out that there was a lot that philanthropic organizations could do to support the community. It is at this juncture that he created the Adam Milstein Family Foundation to support the causes he found to be valuable.
Adam Milstein was keen on making a statement when it came to matters of addressing the issues that affect the Jewish community. He was particularly concerned with the challenges that the Jews in the United States were going through. It is never easy for the Jews to identify with their real identity in foreign lands due to the stigma that has been created by agents of anti-Semitism.
He sought to change the scenario by supporting programs that would strengthen the community. He focused on educational programs that would teach the young Jews in the United States about their origin, language, and values as Jews. Such efforts are meant to make them grow up identifying themselves with the Jewish culture.
Adam Milstein believes that the future of the Jewish community and the State of Israel highly depends on how the current young generation will be brought up.
