Wait… What? Ivanka Trump Gets Pass to Travel by Car on Shabbat for Inauguration
Ivanka Trump doesn’t dress modestly, doesn’t cover her hair, rides around on Shabbat, and claims her conversion is valid.
To be quite honest, there aren’t a lot of pictures of her that are modest enough to put up on the website.
Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner have received rabbinic permission to travel by car on Friday evening [we would like to know by whom] following the inauguration of her father, Donald Trump, as the next president of the United States, according to a Kol Barama radio interview with Mark Zell, the chair of the Republican party in Israel.
Traditionally, traveling in a car on Friday evening or Saturday is a violation of the Jewish Sabbath. Jared Kushner is Jewish, and Ivanka converted to Judaism. In a November Jerusalem Post piece, Shira Schmid noted that Ivanka “took on observance of Shabbat, holidays and kashrut, and adopted the Hebrew name Yael.”
