Ivanka Trump, daughter of GOP presidential primary front-runner and businessman Donald Trump, gave birth on Sunday to her third child with her Jewish husband, real estate mogul and New York Observer newspaper owner Jared Kushner.

Trump converted to Judaism in 2009, taking on the Hebrew name Yael. This makes all three of her children Jewish.

“Jared and I feel incredibly blessed to announce the arrival of Theodore James Kushner,” Ivanka tweeted on Monday. Newly born Theodore joins elder siblings Joseph Frederick, 2, and sister Arabella Rose, 4.

At the end of his speech to the 2016 AIPAC conference last week, Donald Trump expressed pride that Ivanka “is about the have a beautiful Jewish baby.”

“In fact,” Donald Trump told the crowd of nearly 19,000 people, “it could be happening right now, which would be very nice as far as I’m concerned.”

    I do not like the name choices. They could have been named Joseph, Rose, and James. Their middle names could have been Trump.

    How can this child be considered “Jewish” since the mother married a Jew and is not one herself? I mean isn’t this like saying Ishmael was a Jew because he was Abraham’s child. Hagar was a polytheist Egyptian and Abraham recognized that Jewishness came through the monotheistic mother, Sarai. Just because this girl is married to a Jewish man doesn’t make the kid a Jew. Just saying–the press is just playing this for a publicity bite for the Jewish vote here.

      Read, Penni. The article states she converted to Judaism in 2009 taking the Hebrew name Yael. You are either ignorant, which I doubt, or you seem to be quick to jump to conclusions with some other motive. Is it a bit of jealousy that is the true nature of your rant?

      she converted to judaism, so she IS jewish

  • It’s improper to refer to the fact that someone converted to Judaism. All Jews are the same, just as all hospital patients wear the same standard gown!
