Adam Milstein Says Jews Should Never Forget The Horrors Of Their Past

Adam Milstein is a businessman and philanthropist who, along with his wife, Gila, created the Adam and Gila Milstein Foundation.

Since moving to the U.S. with his wife in 1981, Milstein has worked diligently to bridge the gap between Jews in the U.S. and the ones living in Israel.

He was born in Haifa, Israel in 1948. After serving in the Israeli Defense Forces and graduating with a degree in business management, he and his family moved to the U.S.

Adam Milstein wants Jewish people to be fully aware of their roots. He says although they have a painful history, it should not be ignored. The horrors that were perpetrated against Jews in WWII has left a stain that can never be erased.

“The tragedies of the past should serve as lessons for the future,” according to Milstein. He says that “never again” is merely a slogan, unless people do what they need to prevent such horrors from happening again.

To delve more into the horrifying past of the Holocaust, Milstein, his wife and a delegation toured the Nazi death camps. The viewed mass graves and other landmarks where Jews died by the thousands at the hands of Nazi firing squads.

It is estimated that at least 2.4 million Jews were murdered in the Rumbula Forest. The memorial marks the area where so many met their fate.

Milstein says when it comes to these atrocities, people can learn about the past and the future. “Many simply cannot grasp that the anti-semetism displayed toward the Jews cannot happen again. It can.”

According to Adam Milstein, you can draw parallels of what happened in WWII to things going on around the world right now. Adam Milstein stresses that Israel must be protected at all costs. “We had no protection during WWII and the results were terrible. We must make sure that never again really means never again.”

Adam Milstein Focuses on Making Himself Great but Shapes Others

What happens when you go to grad school and feel that you are not being offered what you feel you are worth? For Adam Milstein, it was a no brainer. It was time to become an entrepreneur. Knowing full well that he would need a little experience before breaking out on his own, he worked as a Real Estate Commercial Broker for three years and then began investing on his own.

A day in Adam Milsteins’ life is honestly different depending on what he is doing that day; however, he has found solidarity and happiness when these things involve the philanthropies he supports. He works by himself a lot, realizing that if it must be done it is up to him.

Adam Milstein does find real estate to be exciting as well because people never know what is going to happen with the market. It can be a supply market for years and then flip to a demand market in one day. How then, does one keep winning in a volatile market? “Follow up, consistency and persistency” according to Milstein.

He also notes that not listening to criticism and remembering that becoming wealthy takes time were also important to his growth as a successful businessman.

Milstein started his career as a member of the Israeli Defense Forces and then went to college. While working to obtain his Bachelor’s degree in Business and Economics, he worked alongside his father, expanding their construction and real estate business. Before getting his graduate degree from the University of Southern California, he got married and had two daughters with his wife.
