As a man that stands to be represented by the several professional titles attached to his name, Adam Milstein is viewed by many people within the Jewish community as being a well-respected businessman and Pro-Israel activist who dedicates his time to administering philanthropic services to uplift native Israelis. However, prior to becoming the well-established managing partner, philanthropist, and blog author that he is today, Milstein demonstrated leadership qualities many years beforehand at the prime of his adulthood.
Adam Milstein was born in Haifa, Israel to the parents of a homemaker (mother) and real estate developer (father). As a child, Adam had the pleasure of living within various cities in Israel as his parents relocated accordingly to make suit of their lifestyle. Nonetheless, despite the versatility in his upbringing, Milstein still managed to take hold of responsibility and made the decision to join the Israeli Defense Forces to serve in the Yom Kippur War at the age of 19—a decision that rendered him capable of leadership fulfillment. After the war ended, he married his partner (Gila) and decided to further his education by enrolling at the Israel Institute of Technology in 1978 where he later graduated with a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Industrial and Business Management. Shortly after that, Adam Milstein and his wife relocated to the Unites States. Furthermore, in succeeding his move to the U.S., Adam continued his education to earn his MBA degree from USC—an honor that propelled him to eventually become a Managing Partner at Hager Pacific Properties.
To add to his list of accomplishments, Adam Milstein and wife Gila co-founded the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation to assist the needs of the Jewish community via the provision of financial resources and education. Moreover, as an active board member to several Pro-Israel organizations, Adam Milstein used his platform to become a blog author for Jewish News Syndicate. In his latest article on the JNS blog, Milstein gives a wake-up call to his fellow Jewish brethren with his discussion of the latest trend of the growing alliance between radical leftists, radical rightists, and radical Muslims. Milstein relates how even though the alliance between radical Muslims and rightists has existed for quite some time due to their sharing of extreme ideologies of humane treatment, the growing merge by radical leftists to adapt to this anti-Semitic way of thinking is atypical and poses as a threat to Jewish culture because it signifies the Jewish community’s diminishing support by those in favor of societal equality. Nevertheless, Milstein feels that his audience should take heed to the matter because as more and more people target Israel as a state of oppressors, hatred will grow and the nation of Israel will be forced to be delegitimized.

When employees raised over $173,000 to donate to local charities, Tony Petrello matched the amount to ensure they would have the resources they needed.
The death of Yale professor Serge Lang was another instance in which Tony Petrello showed his generosity. He gave a $150,000 donation to set up a scholarship to honor the famed mathematician. Professor Lang had served as a mentor to Tony Peterllo while he was earning his BS and MS degrees at Yale University. Not satisfied to simply give $150,000, Tony Petrello pledged an additional $150,000 to match any donations other people gave to Professor Lang’s scholarship fund. Petrello felt it was a small way he could show appreciation for the help Professor Lang had provided him. The scholarship will also help needy students gain access to a quality education.
