Adam Milstein is a philanthropist who has dedicated his life to supporting the Jewish population in the U.S. and strengthening the connection between America and Israel. This is truly a unique relationship between the two countries, and since Adam and his wife Gila are citizens of both countries, they are aware of the bond that exists.
In 2000, Milstein and his wife founded the Milstein Family Foundation or MFF, which today is the umbrella company for all of the smaller organizations they have founded in the past 16 years. Mr. Milstein says that he founded the philanthropic organization for two reasons, and they were to strengthen the relationship between Israel and America and to educate the younger generation on their Jewish identity and heritage.

Adam attended the University of Southern California and graduated in 1983 with a Masters in Business Administration. This education prepared him for his ultimate goal, which was to found MFF and help the Jewish people. Milstein is dedicated to strengthening the relationship of the Jewish people to Americans, and he is willing to focus all his time and funds on this mission.
One reason the Adam may be so successful in his work for both his homelands is that he has a business-oriented mindset. This allows him to be very organized and centered. He offers his contributors a concise description of his philanthropic adventurers that is unlike most other organizations. He and his wife developed three major points of their work in the Foundation:
1) Active Philanthropy – means be actively involved with funds, time and resources to ensure success.
2) Life Path Impact – that the benefits of the education reaches from young students to adults.
3) Philanthropic Synergy – is the connection of resources between the groups that are built under MFF. These combined efforts are greater than the individual effects. Adam Milstein is providing abundant information and services that benefit both the Jewish population and the Americans.
