The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2019


Karlie Kloss


Model and Project Runway host Karlie Kloss converted to Judaism before marrying 34-year-old Jewish venture capitalist Joshua Kushner, the younger brother of Jared Kushner, the son-in-law and senior adviser to US President Donald Trump. In an extensive 2019 interview with Vogue magazine, she opened up about her new faith, saying, “Some people find grounding through meditation. Some find it through exercise. And to each their own, but for me, Shabbat has brought so much meaning into my life. It helps me reconnect to the actual world.” In the same interview, Kloss emphasized that her conversion came “only after many years of studying and talking with my family and friends and soul searching. … I made the decision to fully embrace Judaism in my life and start planning for a future with the man I chose to marry.” (Photo: Myles Kalus Anak Jihem / CC BY-SA 4.0)
