Ivanka And Jared Pose For The ‘Gram With Kids And Several Unlit Menorahs

Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner posed with their children in an Instagram post on the first night of Hanukkah.

The White House power couple stood smiling over a table strewn with menorahs, gelt and what appeared to be one golden dreidel.

Curiously, only two of the five menorahs shown in the picture were lit. The table was covered with the telltale tin foil, often used by Jews during the eight days of light to keep candle wax from dripping on the table.

Ivanka Trump had a simple, emoji-less message for her followers: “Happy Hanukkah!”
