Many people attain labels according to their character and contributions to the society, but very few people can attain the title of being a philanthropist. Adam Milstein is among the few individuals that attained that title of being a philanthropist apart from being a well-known investor in the real estate world and was also a community leader. In the year 1973, Adam Milstein lived in Israel, and he served in the IDF which was the year when the Yom Kippur war was present.
