Ivanka Trump Makes Shocking Announcement About Her Faith

Ivanka Trump is typically pretty quiet when it comes to speaking up about her faith, but she recently made an announcement that many people are admiring.

Ivanka converted to Judaism in 2009, before she married her husband Jared Kushner.

“I always shied away from it being a public conversation because it’s such a personal thing… We’re pretty observant, more than some, less than others. I just feel like it’s such an intimate thing for us… It’s been such a great life decision for me. I am very modern, but I’m also a very traditional person, and I think that’s an interesting juxtaposition in how I was raised as well.”

Purim is a Jewish holiday that began 2,500 years ago, and to kick off the beginning of the holiday, Ivanka posted a photo of her and her children baking hamentashen.

Hamentashen are pastries which are usually filled with prunes or other fruit. The word translates to "Haman's ear" and are unique to the Purim festival.

Ivanka and her family celebrate the Sabbath and make it a priority to reserve Friday through Saturday to do nothing but "spend time together." They only answer emergency phone calls. 

Ivanka has contributed her success as a wife and mother to the strength she receives from her family and from her Jewish faith.  

She stated "It's an amazing thing when you're so connected, to really sign off. We don't do anything except play with each other, hang out with one another, go on walks together. Pure family."
