The White House reported that Kushner, who serves as Trump’s advisor, will not be working throughout the week in order to continue the Passover tradition with meals and Seders. Unlike Jared, Ivanka was not raised in the Jewish faith and instead converted just before their marriage. It is rumored that early on in their relationship the couple took a break after running into religious differences between their two families.
Despite the media’s attempts to mark Trump as a prejudice leader, he is one of the first Presidents to be extremely open to various religions. During his campaign he met with multiple religious organizations and invited officials to his inauguration ceremony including, the Rev. Dr. Samuel Rodriguez of the National Hispanic Leadership Conference Pastor Paula White of the New Destiny Christian Center, and Rabbi Hier founder and dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center.
The president tweeted – “Happy Passover to everyone celebrating in the United States of America, Israel, and around the world.

White House Press Secretary also shared this photo with the world showing many of the West Wing staff enjoying a passover celebration in Washington.
Ivanka and Jared have had a rough couple weeks with the media following reports the Trump’s Chief Strategists Steve Bannon and son-in-law are butting heads. Both advisors reportedly met to smooth things out after Trump told the two to “work this out.”
