Jared And Ivanka’s Daughter Was All Smiles At Her Jewish Summer Camp

Eight-year-old First Granddaughter Arabella Kushner recently had her first experience at Jewish summer camp, according to photos posted to social media and first reported Tuesday by the Jewish news website Matzav.

Kushner, the oldest child of Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump, was dropped off at the bus by her mother to attend a three-day session at Camp Morasha, an Orthodox Jewish sleepaway camp in Pennsylvania, Matzav reported.

According to its website, the camp “inspires and develops the minds, bodies, hearts, and souls of its campers, nurturing their commitment to Torah, Modern Orthodoxy, and Zionism; developing their proficiency in sports, swimming and the arts; and nurturing a community defined by kindness, sportsmanship, personal responsibility, good citizenship, and mutual respect.”

Photos from the camp’s website show Kushner playing with new friends and eating popcorn.

Trump has frequently posted photos of her children on her social media pages, including celebrating Jewish holidays like Purim. Arabella herself attracted attention in 2017 when a video of her singing in Mandarin went viral in China. President Trump used the video to break the ice during a meeting with Chinese president Xi Jinping.

Kushner attends a Jewish school; the family observes Shabbat, as well.

“From Friday to Saturday we don’t do anything but hang out with one another… it’s an amazing thing when you’re so connected, to really sign off,” Trump told Vogue in 2015.
