The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2020


Jared Kushner

Senior Adviser to the President of the United States

The outgoing Trump administration leaves a Middle East dramatically transformed for the better as a result of its efforts. Much of the credit for that achievement goes to Jared Kushner, Trump’s senior adviser and husband to the President’s daughter Ivanka. Kushner has written his place in the history books as the architect of the Abraham Accords of 2020, which ushered in a new era of peace between Israel and the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, at the same time countering Iranian expansionism in the region. “What we had through this agreement was two leaders breaking a barrier that many in this region thought would never be breakable,” Kushner reflected after the announcement of the Israel-UAE deal. He also highlighted the continuing centrality of the US to peace and economic progress across the globe: “When you're a partner with America, there's no greater partner in the world.” (Photo: Wikimedia / Creative Commons License)
