She was assisted by Rabbi Levi Shemtov, executive vice president of American Friends of Lubavitch (Chabad), who brought the special four species associated with the Sukkot holiday to the dozens of Jewish advisers and officials who work in the highest echelons of the Trump administration.

Shemtov has been a spiritual adviser to Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner, a senior adviser on the president’s Middle East peace team, since the couple arrived in Washington, DC.

Ivanka was photographed arriving with her family for Yom Kippur services prior to Sukkot, accompanied by Secret Service agents.
