A Look At The Philanthropy Of Adam Milstein

August 23, 2017 • MichaelPollackWins

Adam Milstein is a Californian businessman who is originally from Israel. He invests in real estate specializing in properties that can be refurbished and then rented out to new tenants. He is also a leader in the Israeli-American community and an active philanthropist. He moved to the United States in 1981 with his family and attended the University of Southern California. After earning his MBA he entered the real estate industry as a mortgage broker. Soon he founded his own company, Hager Pacific Properties, and is his company’s managing partner.

As a community leader Adam Milstein has established a number of organizations focused on issues that are important to Israeli-Americans. Among the largest of these is the Israeli-American Council which he chairs. Among other organizations he is also a board member of are the Jewish Funders Network, the Los Angeles Board of Birthright Israel, StandWithUs, and the Hasbara Fellowship. Along with his wife he also created the Adam and Gila Family Foundations and Sifriyat Pijama B’America. The latter organization provides books to Israeli-American families that are published in Hebrew and given away free every month.

One of the things that Adam Milstein has learned over the years is that in order to really support the causes he cares about he can’t just donate money. While helping financially is important he says that it is equally important that he provides his time, vision, and the connections that he has made over the years. While he continues to work at Hager Pacific Properties, Adam Milstein says that he spends about 90% of his time nowadays on his philanthropic efforts.

Altogether Adam Milstein and Gila provide support to over 100 different non-profit organizations across the United States. This activity led to Adam Milstein being named to the 200 Most Influential Do-Gooders in the World as named by Richtopia. Others on this exclusive list accompanying him include Oprah Winfrey, Warren Buffett, Elon Musk, and J.K. Rowling. Milstein said that he was both honored and humbled to make this list.

Richard Mishaan Design And His Fascinating Work

August 7, 2017 • MichaelPollackWins

I think I have found the place I would never want to leave. Richard Mishaan Design has many beautiful interior designs and I would be overjoyed if my home reflected any of these beautifully creative looks. However, I love the look of the Amagansett Retreat in his collection.

 

Richard Mishaan Design has something special with the Amagansett Retreat. I’m a country girl and love the rustic look however I adore style. He has found a look that incorporates classic style that actually enhances the rustic look shown in this collection. The beautifully mixed textiles compliment each other wonderfully. Richard Mishaan Design has found a way to add touches of country in his artistic details while keeping stylish and comfortable living areas. The inviting groupings of furniture makes the space feel warm.

 

The Richard Mishaan Design Amagansett dinning room has a feel of elegance in a very casual way. If you see it you will know exactly what I mean. The two bedrooms each have a distinct look, but each features beautiful fabrics and accessories to make them a true dream. The mixture of colors, art and placement make this the most beautifully casual, classic look and I want it! I almost forgot the cozy rustic outdoor area he created. I guess I could leave the home to sit out there.

 

If you want to see this collection or want additional information on Richard Mishaan Design you need to view his collections at https://www.richardmishaan.com. He has been featured in design magazines such as ELLE D├ęcor and has written two books reflecting his design. The Richard Mishaan Design office is located in New York.
