Adam Milstein — A Native Son

Adam Milstein provides resources, guidance, and funding for a variety of non-profits serving to help Jews strengthen their distinctive identity and those serving to preserve the nation of Israel as the Jewish homeland. How he got to this point is a truly fascinating story.

Born in the northern port city of Haifa, Israel, Adam Milstein served in the Israeli Defense Forces in the early 70s. In October 1973, when Israel was invaded by the combined Arab armies of Egypt, Iraq, and Syria, he served in the army division assigned to General Ariel. After his mandatory military service, Adam Milstein married Gila Elgrably in his hometown of Haifa and earned a bachelor’s degree in economics from the Israeli Institute of Technology, more commonly known as the Technion. Later, Milstein moved his young family to California to take advantage of the educational and economic climate in the United States.

Adam Milstein received an MBA in Business from the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. He became a commercial real estate sales agent and worked his way up to managing partner in Hager Pacific Properties of California. After retiring from the commercial real estate market, Adam Milstein became an outspoken advocate for the nation of Israel, seeking to reinforce the ties between Israel and the United States. Milstein and his wife Gila founded the Milstein Family Foundation, an umbrella group providing support to other pro-Jewish and pro-Israel groups.

Radical Islam has long been associated with the extreme political right but has recently been forming relationships with politically radical ultra-left. The ultra-left willingly overlooks radical Islam’s hatred of gays and oppression of women.

This coalition of radical Islam with the extreme left and extreme right is finding ever more creative ways to strike out at Israel. They range from the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement to anti-Israeli protests on college campuses. Students at Tufts University in Massachusetts and New York University both printed guides attacking the university Jewish organization, Hillel, and deriding Israelis as white supremacists and colonial conquerors.
