Adam Milstein is an Israeli real estate investor and philanthropist, and a managing partner of Hager Pacific Properties. In 2000, Milstein and his wife Gila founded the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation. Milstein was born in Haifa, Israel, the son of Eva (née Temkin), a homemaker, and Hillel Milshtein, a real estate developer. He is of Jewish descent.
Milstein is a co-founder of the Israeli-American Council, the fastest-growing Jewish organization in America, and was recently named National Chairman of this group.
In June 2015, Milstein joined with Sheldon Adelson and Haim Saban to organize the inaugural Campus Maccabees summit. The event brought together more than 50 organizations to "harness the full might of the pro-Israel community to defeat hate groups spreading anti-Semitism and lies about the Jewish State on America’s college campuses."
Milstein strongly opposes the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) Movement, and has written many opinion pieces regarding the movement’s threat to both Israel and Western nations.
Was chief of IAC when they lobbied for anti-BDS legislation: "Senate Bill 26, introduced by Nevada Lieutenant Governor Mark Hutchinson, seeks to counter the discriminatory environment fostered by the BDS movement, according to the Israeli-American Coalition for Action (IAC for Action), which is promoting the measure. Nevada’s anti-BDS resolution will be similar to others passed by some 19 US states in recent years and calls for the state of Nevada to prohibit public purchasing or investments with companies or entities that boycott, divest, or sanction Israel. The legislation does not restrict an individual or entity’s right to abstain from doing business for legitimate business reasons."
