Ahead of Purim, Ivanka Trump shared a photo on Instagram of her family baking hamentashen – triangular cookies traditionally eaten on the Jewish holiday.

The daughter of the new US president is seen in the picture preparing the sweet treat with five-year-old daughter Arabella and three-year-old son, Joseph. Theodore, her youngest – not yet a year old – does not appear in the photo.

Posted in Washington, DC, where Ivanka and husband Jared Kushner – senior adviser to his father-in-law, President Donald Trump – relocated from New York.

This is not the first time that Ivanka has posted photos on social media of holiday rituals she has been engaging in since converting to Judaism in 2009, prior to her marriage to Kushner, an orthodox Jew. Last year, she uploaded a picture of herself with son Joseph preparing Purim baskets.

Purim is a festival commemorating the defeat of Haman’s plot to massacre the Jews of ancient Persia as recorded in the Book of Esther.

    Ivanka Trump may well be a loving Jewish mother to her children, including baking hamentaschen. But that is overshadowed by this administration’s unwillingness to confront the modern Hamens in our midst. And Ivanka is complicit in this failure. Her children, protected by the Secret Service, may be safe, but my grandson isn’t safe in his Jewish school, in his community center, or in his synagogue—all of which have been been attacked either verbally or physically.

    Ivanka is not only a beautiful young, intelligent business woman…but appears to be a most loving and attentive mother to her three children…I admire her modesty, in light of her being brought up in a life of luxury.
