Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner allowed to fly with president on Shabbat

19 May 2017, 10:46 | Terri Saunders

Orthodox Judaism prohibits traveling in vehicles after sundown on Friday night until Saturday night. But they have made exceptions, on a few occasions, for their jobs.

But more than one Orthodox Jew raised a critical eyebrow back in January, when, on Inauguration Day, Jared and Ivanka received a pikuach nefesh permission to ride in a auto on Shabbat to attend the inauguration balls around town.

Under Jewish law, rules requiring observant Jews to more or less unplug on Shabbat can be broken or bent in life-threatening situations, or in case of safety concern.

President Donald Trump's daughter Ivanka Trump (2nd R) and her family, husband Jared Kushner (from L) and children Joseph and Arabella Kushner, arrived aboard the Marine One helicopter with the president to board Air Force One for travel to Florida from Joint Base Andrews, Maryland, March 3, 2017. He huddled with his father-in-law in Trump Tower after the release of the damaging "Access Hollywood" tape in October of 2016 that showed Trump bragging about kissing and groping women without their consent.

"Let's get this done today", Kushner is quoted as saying of the more than $100 billion arms deal on the table, which both sides wanted to finalize before Trump's visit to the nation this weekend as part of his first trip overseas as President.

In her new book, "Women Who Work", Ivanka Trump writes about how her family observes the weekly Jewish holiday. But we're sure the same critical Orthodox Jews who once chided Ivanka and Jared for their inauguration ball heter would be unanimous in their plea that, yes, please, fly on Shabbat, do whatever you have to do to make sure the world is still in one piece come havdalah time... "We enjoy uninterrupted time together and it's wonderful", she said.
