People often ask: "What education have Jared Kushner?". Today we answer on that question.
Kushner was born in Livingston, New Jersey, to Seryl Kushner (nee Stadtmauer) and Charles Kushner, a real-estate developer. His paternal grandparents, Reichel and Joseph Kushner, were Holocaust survivors who came to the U.S. in 1949 from Navahrudak, Belarus. Morris Stadtmauer was the grandfather of Jared Kusnher. Kushner was raised in a Modern Orthodox Jewish family. He graduated from the Frisch School, a Modern Orthodox yeshiva high school, in 1999. He was an honors student and a member of the debate, hockey, and basketball teams.
The born Jared Kori Kushner was born in the family of Orthodox Jews in 1981 in Livingston, New Jersey. About himself, he told that the grandson belongs to the Belarusian partisans. His grandmother Raisa Kushner escaped from the Novogrudok ghetto and met her future husband Joseph Berkovic in the partisan detachment of the Belski brothers. Joseph took the name of his wife, because he himself came from a very poor family. In 1949, the Kushners moved from Belarus to the United States, where Jared's grandfather traveled from an ordinary builder to an investor in the real estate market. The descendants of Joseph did not speak either Belarusian or Russian, but carefully kept family traditions and made generous donations to the Novogrudok Historical and Local History Museum.
In his youth, Kushner studied at a private Jewish school - yeshiva, but was not a particularly diligent student. Well-known journalist Daniel Golden in his book "The Price of Admission" writes that Jared's father donated $ 2.5 million to get his son taken to Harvard.
Kushner enrolled at Harvard University in 1999. Journalist Daniel Golden has alleged that Kushner was accepted due to his father's donations and history with the school. He was elected into the Fly Club, supported the campus Chabad house, and bought and sold real estate in Somerville, Massachusetts, as a vice president of Somerville Building Associates (a division of Kushner Companies).
Its other vice president was his maternal uncle, Richard Stadtmauer, then vice chairman of Kushner Companies. The venture was dissolved in 2005 after returning a profit of $20 million. Kushner graduated from Harvard in 2003 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in government.
Kushner graduated from New York University in 2007 with dual JD/MBA degrees. He interned at Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morgenthau's office, and at Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP.
At the end of the universities, Kushner Jr. very much expected to stay in the development business, continuing to turn multimillion dollar deals. In 2008, he was appointed executive director of the corporation "Kushner Properties", after which he engaged in even larger financial operations with buildings for residential and office purposes. Kushner owns building number 666 on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan - a skyscraper, located within walking distance of the "Trump Tower".
People like Jared Kushner in the West are called "born with a silver spoon in their mouths" - in the sense that he and his brother Joshua, as well as two sisters, Nicole and Dara, grew in luxury from the earliest childhood and did not know poverty. His father Charles Kouchner - a well-known philanthropist and tycoon, founder of the development company Kushner Companies and one of the main sponsors of the Democratic Party - has earned billions of dollars in real estate sales in New Jersey. In business, Kouchner Sr. did not shun the gray schemes, which is why in 2005 he was sentenced to imprisonment for tax evasion, illegal contributions in favor of the election campaign and pressure on witnesses. The prosecutor in the case of Charles Kouchner acted Chris Christie, later became Governor of New Jersey and one of the main associates of Donald Trump. Among American journalists, there is an opinion that Jared Kushner subsequently "took revenge" on Christie, insisting on his dismissal from Trump's transition team after the Republican's victory in the 2016 elections.
