Ivanka Trump was spotted shopping for Sukkot supplies on Sunday in New Jersey, with secret service in tow, the website JewishBreakingNews reported.

Ivanka was reportedly shopping for a lulav and etrog set. The lulav, a date palm frond, and the etrog, the fruit of the citron tree, are important symbolic parts of the autumn Jewish festival of Sukkot.

This isn't Ivanka's first Sukkot shopping trip. In 2011, the Daily Mail reported that she was seen with her husband, Jared Kushner, and their daughter Arabella, who at the time was a baby, carrying the holiday items.

The president's daughter regularly posts on social media about her family keeping the Jewish holidays. Just last week she tweeted about Yom Kippur:
Ivanka converted to Orthodox Judaism before marrying husband Jared Kushner in 2009. Ivanka and Jared even hosted a Shabbat meal for the president's cabinet in January in their home in the Kalorama neighborhood of Washington, DC.
