Rabbi allows Ivanka to ride in car for inauguration on Shabbat

A rabbi gives Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner a special dispensation to ride in a car during tomorrow’s DC inauguration events for her father, some of which take place once Shabbat starts.

The couple are observant Orthodox Jews, with Ivanka converting to Judaism before her 2009 wedding.

The head of the Republican Party in Israel, Mark Zell, tells Israeli radio that permission was granted due to security concerns, The Forward newspaper reports.
