Berkman was raised within a family of tough Jews who knew how to work hard and fight. Raised in a small town within the religiosity and communal values of his Jewish family, Berkman found his place balancing his innate brilliance with sports and sexual adventures. He grew up fearing being seen as incompetent or likely to fail. He won a third of all prizes given out at high school graduation, enumerable other scholarships, and planned on his future as a physician.
