Adam Milstein Encourages Young Generation Jews to Become Leaders

Adam Milstein is a philanthropist, investor, and Hager Pacific Properties’ Managing Partner. He is responsible for the accounting, disposition, and financing of the firm. Hager Pacific Properties is a company engaged in rehabilitating, repositioning, and acquiring multi-family, office, retail and industrial properties.

In his early days after college, Adam Milstein assisted his father in the expansion of their development and real construction business. In 1974 he and Gila got married in Haifa, and in 1981 they came to the United States where Milstein obtained an MBA degree from the Southern California University and went to work as a real estate agent.

In the new article he wrote on The Jerusalem Post, Adam Milstein talked about antisemitism, how the younger generation of American Jews feel about being a Jew, and what it takes to be a leader. In the article, he revealed that there is an alarming increase of antisemitism in 2017 that hit the social media as well as the media across the United States as well as in Europe.

The Millennial Jews feel unsafe that they hardly even want to admit being Jewish. The BDS campaign is succeeding in eliminating and dividing the State of Israel worldwide, which is why there is a need to find new leaders within the younger American Jew generation.

Adam Milstein calls for the support of the entire Jewish community to engage and inspire the young to fight back against antisemitism since these are the individuals who will assist in molding the future of the Jews around the world.

He continues to state that it is the duty of everyone to provide the means for the new leaders to succeed, because if they are proud of their culture and realize the history of the Jewish people, then they will stand up and protect it.

Adam Milstein says he understands that being a leader is not simple and painless because most of the time true leaders have to make difficult decisions that result in being mocked and being isolated from the society. However, hard that may be, great leaders are still essential – so everyone concerned must support them, cultivate them and invest in them to secure the future of the Jews.
