Mana applies philosophy to each and every project he does.
The Mana neighborhoods — Mana Contemporary, Asia-Americas (Latin and North America) Global Trade Hub, Milk Studios (fashion community) — all have philosophies and a purpose behind them. Mana understands the need to belong, the need to unite, the need to bridge cultures, the need for peace and love, the need for community, the need to work, the need to succeed, the need for security, the need to find opportunities and execute, and all needs that each and every one of us, as humans, have in order to build a better life for himself, his family, and the communities surrounding him.
Mana summarizes his philosophy with the slogan, “Mana Common stands for collaboration, connection, communication, and compassion.” Mana believes this is the new dimension of thinking our society needs, in the next century, in order to survive — if not, potentially, the escalating competition for all needs, will find ourselves as individuals and as a country, increasing the wars and the fights which will eventually lead to the destruction of the planet.
Moishe Mana is the American dream uccess story, his successes in several businesses have been featured in many publications and media over the last 25 years. Mana grew up in a poor neighborhood in the suburb of Tel Aviv: Schunat Hatikva. At a young age, soon after his service in the army, he migrated to New York with $1000 dollars in his pocket — he was looking for a better future. He started as a dishwasher and vending on the streets of New York City.
His first success and fame came a few years later when he was able to disrupt the moving industry and became the biggest moving and storage company in the tristate area, a company well known as “Moishe’s Moving and Storage”. Growing up in a neighborhood deprived of economic stability, culture, education, and opportunities, Mana knew from a young age that he would move away from his hometown to explore higher ideas, culture, and disciplines.
