Adam Milstein has recently been recognized as one of the 50 most influential Jews by the Jerusalem Post. Ranking number 39 on the list, he was elected because of his strong leadership as Chairman and Co-founder of the Israeli-American Council, also known as the IAC. Adam Milstein is an activist and philanthropist, as well as a leader in many Jewish organizations such as StandWithUs, Hasbara Fellowships, Birthright Israel, the Israel on Campus Coalition, Birthright Israel, AIPAC and Stand By Me. He is among many prominent political leaders such as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Ron Lauder and Supreme Court Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Elena Kagan. U.S. Senator Charles Schumer, Gal Gadot and Sarah Silverman have also made the list.
Under Milstein’s leadership, the Israeli-American Council has become the fastest growing Jewish organization in the United States, strengthening the identity of the Jewish community. Milstein is honored to be selected for the list and is also grateful to his wife, Gila, the IAC and to the many Jewish organizations that he has partnered with. The Milstein Family Foundation is on a mission to strengthen the Jewish community and also their State of Israel. Their philosophy is that by embracing the principles of philanthropy, building synergies between organizations and keeping their life-to-impact in mind, they will continue to strengthen the State of Israel as well as the Jewish people. Their foundation is encouraging Jewish pride and teaching pro-Israel Americans to have the knowledge and experience to support the State of Israel while boosting the important U.S.-Israel alliance.
