Adam Milstein is an Israeli-American philanthropist who is very active in the Jewish communities and various organizations that help Jewish people, not only in Israel but America as well. He, along with his wife Gila, established the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation to provide support and strength for the Jewish communities through various programs in which they provide financial support or give of their time and other resources.
Adam believes that instilling pride and courage in the Jewish people is paramount to sustaining their culture and homeland. It is the youth that will carry the future forward for the Jewish people and Adam has invested his time and resources in organizations that seek to encourage the Jewish community to become leaders in their communities and take the Jewish nation forward into the future.
Milstein actively participates in many organizations that help Jewish people across cultures, not only in Israel, but in the United States as well, and one philosophy of he and his wife’s Family Foundation is to reach their target audience across many different age groups, from children on through to the various stages of adulthood. They call this the Life Path Impact and it is the second philosophy that the foundation upholds. The first one is Active Philanthropy which encourages those who help the Jewish community to not only give of their financial resources but of their time and effort as well. The third and last is Philanthropic Synergy which encourages other philanthropic organizations to come together and work together toward a common objective which brings to light the old adage that the ‘whole is greater than the sum of its parts.’
