Looks like Ivanka Trump is taking her role as Jewish-wife quite seriously.

The mini-mogul, and daughter of Donald, is married to Jared Kushner, a wealthy businessman who also happens to be an Orthodox Jew. In a recent interview with The Wall Street Journal, Trump states that on Friday “I cook a feast for my husband. I treat it like Thanksgiving and map it out with military precision. This week I’m making mint pea soup with challah croissants, and my grandmother’s recipe for beef goulash with egg noodles.”

She also doesn’t take the Sabbath lightly. “No email, no TV, no Internet from Friday night to Saturday night. It’s incredibly restorative,” she said.

    Ivanka, I say more power to you. Maybe you can teach us a thing or two. I welcome you to our “TRIBE” with open arms. Not only are you rich and beautiful but you are also a real MENSH.

  • Shoshi

    She seems very grounded and happy…and so very supportive of Shabbat and family! What is wrong with that?

  • victoria brandeis

    THE WASTE OF GOOD SEEDS……IVANKA IS NOT ORTHODOX AND I DOUBT JARED IS EITHER….HER DRESS IS THAT OF A SHICKZA…PLAIN AND SIMPLE……..SHAMEFUL

    I THINK AMERICA IS REALLY FINISHED…….

    • Elmo Glick

      Oh, shut up. Everybody is free to define their Jewishness as they see fit. I’ don’t observe the Sabbath (I’m writing this in the early AM on Saturday) and I don’t eat kosher food. (Love bacon.)

      And no one can tell me I’m not a Jew, and a good one, at that.

      They can define their Orthodoxy as they wish. Good for them they observe part of the Orthodox tradition, and they are free to modernize the rest.

      • Michael Rush

        You are Jewish but you have certainly missed the mark. respectfully. Why not learn about the beauty of your 3500 year old Heritage?

    • julie richardson

      yes Vicki I agree with elmo, how do you know if jared is orthodox ,do you know him personally, and the word shickza is a derogatory word from the old country about gentiles and I take great offence to that since I am a gentile.stick your crazy Jewishness up your princess ass.

      • Shlomo

        You’re right, it is a worse name than the n word, which is essentially Spanish for black. Sheketz means a disgusting creepy critter..There is no reason to ever call a person by this perjorative name!

    • Liat

      it also says that picture is from 2007, pre Judaism.

    • Romor

      LOL! You expect us to believe that you are a Jew? A real Jew would never be so embarrassingly dumb.

    • Cowboy

      You truly are an imbecile!

    • Amanda N

      Victoria, what a Chillul Hashem you have just made. Who are you to judge someone else’s level of Jewish observance and especially based on a simple thing like external appearance? I personally only wear long sleeves and knee length skirts and I have many close friends who are more lax in those areas but are better Jews than I think I could ever hope to be. Shame on you. Mind your own business and discover where you may be lacking before jumping on people you don’t even know.

    Ivanka is class, beauty, and brains. Jared is a lucky man. It is clear Ivanka is also taking Shabbos Kodesh seriously. Wonderful! People, understand: We are a nation of converts. We all converted at Mount Sinai. That’s Halachah. Period. So celebrate the addition of a brilliant, beautiful woman! Ivanka, welcome with open arms!

  • Jan C.

    I have always adored Ivnaka. She went to the Wharton school of business and excelled. She could have been a spoiled brat like Paris Hilton but she wasn’t. Her father wanted her to excel and she did. chosing to be Jewish is not an easy choice. Many marry Jewish men and convert but really don’t consider themselves converts. They only do it so that they can marry and keep the family satisfied. Ivanka not only studied with the Rabbonim, it appears that she is truly a Jewish wife and mother. Brava.Gorgeous, brilliant and a class act all the way.

  • Pamela Magdanz

    Ivanka,
    Mazel Tov! on your marriage and your delight in observance of Shabbat. Long ago, Boaz and Ruth made choices that sealed their destiny and the lineage that came from their union.Abraham and Sarai too chose to come out of lands immersed in paganism to serve the one G-D.HaShem knows your hearts, be strong in your love of HaShem,his Torah,eachother and your fellow man. A Jew by choice is a true Jewel in her/his creators hand and your Orthodox husband is full of the courage of kings. as you both know there would be some opposition, you know that HaShem’s love is stronger.be blessed, be well,be happy!
    Chanashira, a convert first, then found my lineage.

  • NEIL

    THE MAJORITY OF”JEWISH WOMEN” IN THE GOLUT ARE JAPS WITHOUT CLASS, MANNERS & ARE BASICALLY UGLY & SEXLESS!!! WE NEED MORE IVANKA TRUMPS TO IMPROVE THE RACIAL STOCK!!!!

  • I want every single jewish man out there to date
    NON JEWISH GIRLS then convert them then marry them.
    or should you convert them for marrige then marry them.

    NEXT. SEND APOLOGY NOTES TO THE APPROX 1 MILLION UNMARRIED JEWISH GIRLS who are now sitting home alone that you could have married and continued OUR TRADITION HANDED DOWN FROM MOSHE RABBEINU.

    THEN sent congratulations to the million xtians and muslims and buddists who will date bed and desecrate these once jewish woman,marry them and permanently erase a world that could’ve been.

    and you fools out there writing in congratulating trump and company?
    If he was ORTHODOX he never wouldve dated the goya.
    but HE MIND BELOW HIS BELT AND HIS MATERIAL MIND FOR A LEGASY TOOK OVER HIS TORAH MIND…his choice to allow it.

    ITS A TIME TO MOURN FOR THE MILLION UNMARRIED JEWISH WOMAN AND NOT TO CELEBRATE INTERMARRIGE.

    conversion for marrige is not accepted in the heavens.
    only on the internet its accepted and the obama voters.

    absurd….
    because she makes challah you praise her…
    so absurd

    • Isaac

      You try to sound as if you know what you’re talking about but your ignorance is as big as your mouth. Really? A conversion is not recognised in heaven? Go back and study beyond your nose and review some Tanach or something. O’m not even gonna ask you to read the shulchan aruch.

    • BEngel

      First of all, though you may be right in some of the things you say your words do not represent our jewish people as the moral, kind people we are supposed to be. You are entitled to your opinion but it is expressed as someone who is quite ignorant. We all want continuity but please do not begin to say you are a Jew when you speak as you do to other people!!

    • Elmo Glick

      So where are all these unmarried Jewish women? Sitting around getting fat and being ugly? Maybe being attractive but spoiled and overly-demanding?

      • Jake R

        Yes, that’s exactly correct.

  • Elizabeth Collins

    It would be SUCH a blessing if America had been founded upon and observed the Sabbath, rather than substituting it with Sunday.

  • Lawrence Kulak

    My sentiments exactly Frederick! It is no doubt a tremendous Kiddush Hashem for a girl from gentile surroudings to be devoted to the Holy Jewish Sabbath. I congratulate the Donald on having such a quality daughter who is a reflection of himself. He should feel extremely proud – of himself as well for this major contribution to the Jewish image through his lovely daughter.

    • Just a Jew

      My comment is directed at DACON9!

  • Fredric M. London

    Bless you! Gorgeous and good mix very well.
