Presidential Purim: Ivanka bakes hamentashen with family
The first daughter and first grandchildren celebrate the Jews' historic salvation with traditional treats.
Purim is upon the Washington DC home of first daughter Ivanka Trump, who baked hamentashen with her children on Friday.

Ivanka posted a photo on Instagram of the pastry-making featuring herself, her daughter Arabella (5), and her son Joseph (3), crafting the jam-filled goodies, which are traditionally served during the Purim celebration of the aversion of a massive slaughter of the historic Persian Jewish population.

Ivanka called the activity "after-school fun."

Trump 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. Her social media presence has brought a touch of family to the new administration's image.
