Jared Kushner

Senior Adviser to the President

Jared Corey Kushner was born in January 1981 in Livingston, New Jersey. He graduated from the Frisch School. He received an undergraduate degree in government from Harvard University and earned a dual JD/MBA at New York University.

Kushner is a real-estate investor, primarily in the New York City real-estate market. He has also been in the publishing business, having purchased the New York Observer. He stepped down from his newspaper role in January 2017 to pursue a role in President Donald Trump’s administration. Shortly thereafter, he was named Senior Adviser to the President.

Kushner is married to Ivanka Trump, and they have three children. They are Orthodox Jews, keep a kosher home, and observe the Jewish Sabbath.

In the News

A third election campaign in Israel will hamper U.S. plans for regional initiatives in the Middle East. That was the message President Trump’s senior adviser Jared Kushner said as he met with the leader of the Blue and White party, Benny Gantz, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Israel.

The fact that Kushner chose to make an unusual move and publicly convey the message — regardless that it has to do with domestic politics in Israel — shows the White House's wish to see a unity government.

Kushner said his message delivered to each man individually and in private meetings was that “now in the region there really are tremendous opportunities… so it will be great for Israel to figure out how to form a government so we can start working on all the big priorities and opportunities that exist.”

He added, “They [Gantz and Netanyahu] are experts on how to put this together and hopefully they will be able to find a way to do that.”
