Ivanka and Jared flew on Air Force One together with US President Donald Trump to Saudi Arabia on Friday, landing after the start of Shabbos on Friday night. However, they did not state which rabbi had given them permission to do so.
Kehilat Yeshurun Rabbi Haskel Lookstein said on Sunday that he was not the rabbi who gave Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner permission to fly on Air Force One on Shabbat (Sabbath), calling the rumors “fake news”.
Rabbi Lookstein is the rabbi who converted Ivanka in 2009, prior to her marriage to Jared Kushner.
According to Yediot Ahronot, Lookstein told Opposition Leader Yitzhak Herzog that he has not been in touch with Ivanka for “several weeks” and the information was false. Read more at ARUTZ SHEVA.
