Ivanka Trump Becoming a Jew…for Jared Kushner?
First Lohan, now Trump.
Or should I say, Trumpberg? Trumpstein? Schwartztrump?
Ivanka Trump has sought out a rabbi to take her on her journey to Judaism. Why does she want to be a Jew? Why not? We are wonderful people: kind, generous, family oriented, and we know how to eat. And, hello, have you ever had matzoh ball soup? Yeah, that’s all us.
Oh, and she is also in love with some Jewish guy who won’t marry her unless she too celebrates Hanukkah, Yom Kippur and all that jazz.
I think it is wonderful that Ivanka has found love (and a real estate empire) in Jared Kushner, but the whole thing makes me wonder just how far women should go to be with the guy they love. I used to get sh*t from my friends for changing my hair/music selection/weekend plans for the guys I was with, so I can only imagine how they’d feel if I changed my entire belief system.
I know that love is a wondeful thing, that it is hard to find, and that we should hold onto the one we got, but there has to be a line, right?
Would you convert for someone you love?
