Ivanka Trump and Kids Head to Shul on Shemini Atzeret


The news media always pay attention when Ivanka Trump gets dressed for shul, and this week her walk to shul on Shemini Atzeret in the Kalorama section of Washington, D.C. was no exception.

This year they focused on her dress and hat, and the scooters that her three kids were riding. The mispronunciations of the automated text reader are always funny, and especially when trying to pronounce Sukkot and Shemini Atzeret.

Back in 2011 we posted a photo from the London Daily Mail showing Ivanka, Jared, and baby Arabella walking to shul in Manhattan on Sukkot. It's still the most viewed post on Jewish Humor Central. What made the photo an example of Jewish humor was the Daily Mail's description of the scene as Ivanka walking with some flowers that her husband bought for her. Actually he was carrying a lulav in plastic wrapping and an etrog in a cardboard box, just like any Jew going to shul on the holiday. 

Enjoy!

  1. OMG! The narrator is not Jewish. His pronunciation of the Hebrew words and holidays is a disgrace. Take this out of the public view.

    1. That's precisely the point and why this piece is funny. It's probably not a real person narrating but a computer program that produces text to voice.
