Perched very near the pinnacle of positive Israeli and American relations resides a man by the name of Adam Milstein. He and his wife, Gila, have been instrumental in funding and providing services like partnership development, consulting and fundraising for programs related to Jewish continuity and education. His efforts have helped strengthen the State of Israel and the Jewish people, and his labors have very positively impacted the relationship between the United States and Israel.
This philanthropist co-founded the Israeli-American Council. He is on the board of numerous worthy organizations, and he helped found Sifriyat Pijama B’America through which free books written in Hebrew are provided monthly to more than 70 families who are Jewish-American.
Adam Milstein’s philosophy for the operation of his philanthropic arm consists of three parts. First, the Milstein Family Foundation he created believes in active philanthropy. He and the staff of his foundation invest a large portion of time and contribute a tremendous amount of expertise to each program, project and organization they support. Of course, it is a given that significant levels of financial resources go to these worthy causes to help ensure their success.
The second principle of Adam Milstein’s philosophy involves his desire to have an impact on individuals throughout their lifetime, not just momentarily. At his direction, the foundation looks for and funds the development of organizations that remain connected to their target individuals during all the stages of life. From childhood through adolescence and then during the many phases of adulthood, the partner organizations of Adam Milstein’s philanthropic outreach develop and maintain deep connections with their targeted population.
The third and final principle upon which Adam Milstein founded his philanthropic philosphy is his desire for the organizations he assists to have an even greater impact by partnering with other non-profit entities aiming for the same desired results. The noble efforts of this man and the foundation that bears his name have produced major positive results in the Israeli-American arena.
