Adam Milstein and wife Gila came to the United States in order to further their education. After he graduated from Technion, they opted to head to the United States to receive his MBA in the background of entrepreneuring. Before he graduated from school, he was approached by many people who were looking to recruit others for jobs. It was then that he realized that most people did not knowledge or appreciate what he knew about the Jewish community.
When Adam Milstein would head out to interviews about jobs, he would find that the amount of money he was being offered was far less than what he was worth. Not only that, but the amount of money he would have made, he could have had more money working for a fast food joint.
Upon heading to school and then into business, he decided to make the most of his life by becoming a commercial real estate broker. When he completed school, and then completed 3 years as a broker, he decided it was then time for him to become his own real estate investor.
The one thing that Adam Milstein contributes his success to is; making sure that you stay actively involved. He wants to make sure that his actual day to day job functions are satisfying and that he is involved in some type of philanthropy work. By participating in philanthropy, he found that everything he was doing each day was more satisfying than it was before becoming involved in Jewish programs.
When Adam Milstein decided that he wanted to bring awareness to the Jewish community, he didn’t know how invested he would end up being. Deciding to be on the board of numerous organizations, Adam and his wife Gila decided that they could contribute more awareness through their own foundation. They decided to also become involved in an organization they co-founded that would send monthly books to those in the Jewish community, but it would provide those books in Hebrew. This helps to establish the Jewish traditions in the homes that otherwise would be lacking. The books are sent to over 15,000 families.
