Adam Milstein: Multicultural Philanthropist

Part of being an American, is knowing that you are only part American and part your own cultural identity. Philanthropic leader Adam Milstein understands this more than most, as he lives and operates his business in the United States, but his heart is with his people who are fighting for their own rights in Israel.

While some immigrants come to the states with the intention of assimilating, Adam Milstein understands how important it is to remember parts of your culture. No matter how successful things are in the United States, immigrants should remember the home that made them and the people struggling there. That is why Adam Milstein’s efforts in assisting the Jewish population of Israel has ranked him as one of the “200 Most Influential Do-Gooders in the World” along with Bill and Melinda Gates or Elong Musk.

Adam Milstein believes that instilling the Jewish pride through family heritage is one of the most important and effective ways for helping his future generations understand passion and purpose. Then, their passion and purpose can be directed towards families, community, leadership, and overall the country in which we all live. Because of this belief in unity, Adam Milstein instills the need within his community to lend helping hands, and he really exemplifies this through his own philanthropic efforts in his non profit titled The Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation, which has been helping humanitarian efforts in Israel for the Jewish population struggling to receive their rights.

Adam Milstein is dedicated to making sure his culture thrives in the United States, which is mutually beneficial to all because understanding and working with other cultures, as well as nurturing your own, increases patience, understanding, and tolerance when we meet anyone who is different than ourselves. Maintaining this pride throughout the future will ensure that Jewish values and their strengths never disappear from our traditional melting pot of culture.

In 2003, Fabio’s eldest son, José Auriemo Neto, took over the company. He was 27 years old. He had been responsible for developing Park Bem, which was the park’s division of the company, at age 17, and by the time he was 22, he was a director of the mall area.
