Adam Milstein’s Israeli Identity Focus

Adam Milstein, the Chairman of the Israeli-American Council and longtime writer and businessman remarked on the state of Israeli-Americans not long ago when mingling with large crowds at the organization’s annual conference. Even though most Israeli-Americans and established Jews have long integrated into American culture, many of them even today still feel deep ties to the homeland and talk about their heritage with a great sense of pride. Milstein is very optimistic about this growing attitude because Israel is not just a physical country, but it’s the source of the Jewish identity. He believes that the pride in the history and identity as well as unconditionally supporting Israel is what leads to prosperous Jews all around the globe.

Adam Milstein was born in Haifa, Israel in 1952 and witnessed firsthand how Israeli ingenuity in the military was able to beat back many different armies. He himself served in the defense forces during the Yom Kippur War and not only saw a quick surrender of Egypt, but also met his sweetheart and wife of over 40 years Gila during that time. Adam Milstein holds both a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree in business and economics and is currently the Managing Partner of Hager Pacific Properties. He helped start this Los Angeles based firm back in 1983 and has turned the company’s investments into a portfolio consisting of billions worth of luxury properties.

Adam Milstein always had intended to stay connected with Israel while using his business influence and funds to also strengthen the American Jewish and Israeli communities, and he and Gila took it a step further in 2000 when they started the Milstein Family Foundation. The foundation is anchored on three principles of active philanthropy, path life impact and philanthropic synergy. These basically state that the Milsteins not only give money to community and religious Jewish groups but come to physically assist them with activities as well. The people they reach range from all different age groups, and they have a wide spectrum of leaders they try to involve, and some of the more well-known people who’ve had ties to the Milsteins are political donors Haim Saban and Sheldon Adelson. In addition to the Israeli-American Council, Adam Milstein also is a member of StandWithUs, Jerusalem U, Students Supporting Israel, AIPAC and the Hillel Foundation.

David Giertz Provides Insight For Retirees On Social Security

Updated for 4-15-2018: Take a look at this post from David Giertz about retiring.  Really good information for people preparing to retire early, or if you just need an outline on what to do if you plan to retire on time some day, without help from social security.

Most retirees will be dependant on social security as a main source of income. However, many financial advisors fail to help their clients realize the challenges that will come with living on a fixed income. Finacial advisor David Giertz, President of Nationwide Financial’s sales and distribution organization, recently spoke to the Wall Street Journal regarding how retirees can prepare for life on Social Security.

In the video interview, Mr. Giertz said that most financial advisors avoid talking to their clients about social security because of the sheer complexity of the social security rules. Mr. Giertz mentioned that there over 2,700 rules in the social security handbook alone. And he warned that 4 out of 5 clients said that they would switch advisors if the advisor did not thoroughly understand the rules surrounding social security.

Mr. Giertz mentioned that social security could equal 40% of a retiree’s income. And that retirees could lose up to $300,000 of their benefits if they turn on their social security benefits too early. With that in mind, Mr. Gietz suggested that financial advisors educate themselves on the social security system.

David Giertz is one of the premier financial advisors in the United States. As the President of Nationwide Financial’s sales and distribution organization, Mr. Giertz has seen the company grow from $11 billion to $17 billion in profitable revenue.

Mr. Giertz began his financial career at Citigroup where he started as a Financial Services Advisor. He was later promoted to Area Director and eventually rose to the title of Executive Vice President of Sales. As more and more people head towards retirement, David Giertz and Nationwide Financial will rise to the challenge and help their clients gain the income they need to enjoy their retirement.
