His father was a combat sailer and later a real estate developer; his mother was a homemaker. Adam Milstein joined the Israeli Defense forces in 1971. He served in the 1973 Yom Kippur War. After his two years of service he enrolled in the Technion. He graduated with a Bachelors in Science in business and economics in 1978. While he was achieving his higher education, qAdam decided to work with his father to help further expand their real estate business. Milstein met his wife in 1974 and by 1981 they moved to the United States. Upon his arrival Adam decided to further his education and enrolled at the University of Southern California. He obtained his Master of business administration degree in 1983 and then began working real estate as an agent.
By the year 2000 Adam Milstien and his wife Gila established MFF (Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation). The foundation was implemented to help students connect with their Israeli heritage and further their Jewish Pride. The Milstein’s wanted these young students to be able to connect to their heritage and become advocates for the state of Israel. Since the fouding of MFF several other small grass roots groups have been forming on college campuses all across America. The Students Supporting Israel (SSI) support group began at the University of Minnesota. This group was formed to help students stand up for Israelis who were being demonized on campus. Support groups such as the Milstein family foundation and students supporting Israel have increased in numbers and are there to support young college students who want to understand more of their heritage.
