Ivanka Trump Goes Shopping For A Lulav And Etrog In New Jersey

Presidential advisor and First Daughter Ivanka Trump was spotted shopping for Sukkot supplies in Deal, New Jersey on Sunday along with her four-year-old son Joseph and two Secret Service agents in tow.

The harvest holiday of Sukkot is traditionally celebrated using a lulav—a set of palm, willow and myrtle branches—and an etrog, a yellow citron fruit.

The family of Trump’s husband, Jared Kushner, is from northern New Jersey.

Trump and Kushner were photographed in 2011 preparing for Sukkot with their daughter Arabella, then a baby.
