Donald Trump is a real mensch!—at least when it comes to providing some Bar Mitzvah glitz. “The Donald” as they call him, the real estate mogul/TV star known for pasting his name on the front of any luxury building he can, popped up at his lawyer’s son’s Bar Mitzvah this past weekend. Celebrity gossip site TMZ got a hold of some of the pictures. TMZ reports “Trump hung around and schmoozed for a while — and even gave a speech at the coming of age celebration. One source at the event tell (sic) us, ‘It was very heartfelt … everybody loved it … and he took tons of photos with everyone who asked.'”

Trump isn’t an interloper when it comes to Judaism. His daughter Ivanka converted to the religion when she married Jared Kushner, a wealthy New York City businessman who is Orthodox. They have a daughter together so Trump will have at least one more mitzvah to celebrate—albeit a Bat instead of a Bar the next time.

The TMZ report on the event can be viewed below:

    Trump has Jewish values, because he has managed to maintain the positive parts of the old-fashioned Christian values (Christianity is still mostly based on the Torah).

    He is a great character, who is not embarrassed to be himself and to stand up for himself.

    He’s also had a great career and raised his family very well.

    This story demonstrates that Donald Trump feels comfortable amongst the Jewish people because he shares our values. Trump is a true righteous Gentile, and has done many great charitable things that you would ordinarily expect from somebody Jewish according to some of the stories I have heard. It is nice to know that there are some Gentiles who share our values and who can revel with us just as if it were their own simcha.
