The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2019


Jared Kushner

White House senior adviser

While the Trump White House has become a revolving door for presidential advisers, the president’s son-in-law Jared Kushner has retained his position at the heart of the administration. His main priority has been the revival of peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians, based on a much-heralded peace plan that emphasizes economic development and regional cooperation as well as Palestinian self-determination. “There are some things that the current Palestinian government has done well and there’s some things that are lacking,” Kushner said in an August 2019 interview. “For investors to come in and want to invest in different industry and infrastructure and create jobs, you do need to have a fair judicial system. You need to have freedom of press, freedom of expression, tolerance for all religions.” (Photo: Reuters / Kevin Lamarque / File)
