Early life & EducationEdit

Mezvinsky was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and grew up attending a Conservative Jewish synagogue[3] and Friends' Central School, a Quaker school outside of Philadelphia. His parents are both former Democratic members of the U.S. House of Representatives. His father is Edward Mezvinsky (b. 1937) and his mother is Marjorie Margolies (b. 1942).[4]

Mezvinsky has 10 brothers and sisters, including five adopted siblings.[5] In 1970, his mother was the first single American woman to adopt a foreign child, and authored the book ‘“They Came to Stay” about her experience.[6] The Mezvinskys took a number of refugee families into their home and arranged surgeries and adoptions for distressed children from abroad.[7]

Mezvinsky graduated from Stanford University in 2000, where he received a B.A. in religious studies and philosophy.[8] He then attended Pembroke College, Oxford in 2002, where he received his MA in Politics, Philosophy and Economics.[9]
