Adam Grossman

In the past three years, Adam Grossman has raised more than $20 million in investment capital for Israel through the sales of Israel Bonds. It comes as no surprise, then, that the registered sales representative is also a national Israel Bonds award winner for his sales performance, and was recently rewarded with a trip to Israel from the national organization.

“As we all look for ways to ensure Jewish continuity, Adam isn't looking, he's doing,” said Daniel Goldwin, the executive director of the Israel Bonds Midwest region, and one Adam’s many nominators. “I have yet to see Adam shrink from a challenge or assume something cannot be done.”

And it’s not just a numbers game for the 33-year-old rising leader, who also meets with Holocaust survivors to support and guide them through the purchase of Israel bonds; Adam is devoted to serving the Jewish community both on and off the job. Despite his hectic work schedule, Adam finds time to be active with JUF, AIPAC, ADL, Congregation Beth Shalom, Michael Rolfe Pancreatic Cancer Foundation, Auxiliary Board of Northwestern Memorial Hospital, and the Special Olympics.

“He does everything with a smile,” said Diane Herbstman Welbel, his sister-in-law. “He has an incredible work ethic and is truly a special, extraordinary, and overall one of a kind guy.”
