Most of Jewish American wealth generally has been self-made in the last century or so (as opposed to Gentile-inherited opulence). About half of the Jewish super-rich built their fortunes in real estate and construction, most notably in the New York City area, but also all across the country. The Tishman family business dates back to 1898, when Julius Tishman started building tenements in New York City. In the 1920’s, the firm became publicly traded on Wall Street. By 1982, the great majority of the New York landlords were Jewish including the prominent family name of Tishman. There have been series of companies using the Tishman name, almost all of which are connected to the real estate industry in one way or another. A company named Tishman Research helped to develop for U.S. Gypsum a dry-wall construction method for elevator shafts and stairwells, now an industry standard. The first major use was in the World Trade Center. The Tishman family eventually partnered with a man named Jerry Speyer who married into the family. The two called their company Tishman-Speyer Properties, and they became one of the largest “builder-owners” in the US. It should be of no surprise to anyone that the same construction company that built the original WTC Building Number 7 was contracted to build the new building: Tishman Construction Corporation. Today, the particular Tishman family is extraordinary wealthy and is considered by many to be one of the pre-eminent Zionist entities in the US. Not surprisingly, members of Tishman-Speyer have turned up in counter-psychological operations against US citizens in various 9/11 Truth political activist organizations, especially in the NYC area.
