Adam Milstein is the co-founder of Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation. He founded the foundation alongside his wife, Gila Milsten. According to Milstein together with his wife, they are passionate about the welfare of the Jewish community, the state of their homeland- Israel and the special ties that Israel shares with the United States. They feel they have a responsibility as senior Jewish leaders to shape the destiny of the future generation when it comes to the preservation of the Jewish culture and values.
Since its creation, the Milstein Family Foundation has been involved in works concerning Jewish students and young professionals. The intention is to make sure that these young people identify themselves with the Jewish roots, boost and cultivate their courage to express themselves as Jews, make them feel proud of being Jews, and enable them to connect or integrate with their mother country Israel. The students are also taught on the need to advocate for the interests of Jewish people in the schools, campuses, among friends and in the communities.
Over the years the foundation has remained consistent in its campaign. According to Milstein, he has learned that philanthropy is not just about contributing money. It involves a lot more including dedicating energy, time, connections and vision for the course. He adds that since he started working, the philanthropy course has been the most exciting initiative he has ever undertaken. As a philanthropist, Milstein has spent millions of money advocating for the welfare of the Jewish culture through his foundation.
