Ivanka Trump Visits Rebbe's Ohel

Ivanka Trump, daughter of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, was at the Rebbe's Ohel after Shabbos.

By COLlive reporter

Entrepreneur Ivanka Trump, daughter of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, was seen visiting the Rebbe's holy gravesite in Queens, NY, 3 nights before the general election.

A modestly dressed Trump was seen coming to the Ohel at the Old Montefiore Cemetery alongside her husband Jared Kushner, owner of the New York Observer and a key advisor to the campaign.

The latest LA Times/USC Tracking poll shows Donald Trump with a 5 point lead over Democratic rival Hillary Clinton in what has been a contentious and unlikely race to be the 45th President of the United States.

"The visit was meant to be private," a person connected to the visit which took place hours after Shabbos has ended told COLlive.com. The media was not invited to the visit.

A video shared on social media taken by a bystander shows Kushner and Trump walking through the visitors center of Ohel Chabad Lubavitch on their way to the Rebbe's Ohel in the cemetery itself.

Accompanying them was Rabbi Zalman Grossbaum, Executive Director of Chabad of Livingston in New Jersey who has close ties with the Kushner family. Also seen is Rabbi Motti Seligson, Director of Media Relations at Chabad.org.

An eclectic group of people can be regularly seen at the Ohel, which the New York Times once mentioned as a must-see site to visit. It is a place where thousands come and continue to receive inspiration and blessing from the Rebbe.

Among the recent publicized visits to the Ohel were of the African American U.S. Senator Cory Booker and Victor Espinoza, jockey of the American Pharoah Thoroughbred racehorse which went on to win the first Triple Crown-winning horse in 37 years.

The Trump campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

At the exact second there was a real assassination attempt on The Doanld in Reno Nevada. And he walked away safe and sound. The Rebbe is watching him closely.

Someone goes to have a private moment with the Rebbe, and some creep with a cellphone violates it. I heard he tried to go into the ohel itself to get that on film as well.

Good man
He's a great great man. And Ivanka and Jared are responsible Jews. The Rebbe will answer the call for help because people, help comes in a blink of an eye. Hashem will send the help through a Jewish daughter who has a non jewish father and mother. This is how the Jews were saved with Queen Esther being in the position she was in. Ivanka and Jared went to the Rebbe, I'm do hsppy. They are very humble. Please Gd, please don't let the foolish amount us get their way. Take a look at England full of Muslims. France, Italy and all the other places, this could happen here too. I'm from UK. It's very very dangerous to be Jewish there now. Think people. Vote TRUMP and be FREE

I am thinking about you and I am sure you are voting for a third party candidate, because to me it is sad to think that someone might vote for a woman that clearly broke the law and was not prosecuted because apparently the law is for the common folk. In case you are thinking to vote for her, please check wiki leaks especially their twitter feed for the highlights of the emails exposed, and if you are still not shaken from your loyal support then you should really do some soul searching

oh!
so she goes to the ohel and now all the comments are about how shes the best jew in the world. Doesnt matter how she dresses or what she does when she isnt at the ohel. But she came to the ohel thats all you remember. The Rebbe is watching over trump someone comments? We dont even know if half the positive stuff he says about his likes for jews and Israel are even true! We dont know that hes the better choice. We saw how freely his derogatory remarks were unleashed at the jewish american convention. ya remember that? Just think twice before coming to conclucions and deciding for the Rebbe.

Sad to see how a lubavitcher could talk like that!!

As far as I'm concerned the Rebbe has always taught us to respect ALL yidden no matter how they act!!! So calm down... all we are trying to say is that it is quite obvious btw the two candidates that trump actually respects our religion so much so that his daughter found it appropriate to go to the ohel to daven... we didn't see anything like this ever before.

Now while I understand you may not be that comfortable with trump because there are no bases he means all the good he said, he has been a good friend to israel even before this campaign and has many top advisors who are even frum!!!

One thing we do know is that Hillary is one of the biggest anti israel candidates ever and there IS clear bases to that!!! (Just look at the way she speaks about israel in wikileaks, and the iran deal etc.)

The media tried real hard painting trump like a bad stupid and unstable guy its simply because they didn't have as many scandals as by Clinton to attack him, just think of it a moment a man with a company like trumps probably was able to speak to enough people without pressing any nuclear buttons its funny how the media was actually able to convince people he unstable.

The choice is clear for is either Clinton who wants to increase the refugees....!!!!!!!!! (Just think of that) it'll be like Germany Sweden etc where a Jew feels anything but safe waking down the street, or trump which actually has a record of being friendly to Israel and for sure can't be worse then Obama/Clinton

Be smart VOTE TRUMP

Go Ivanka!
Ivanka comes from the richest American families! She is gifted with beauty, inteligencs and more.
Im not g-d, so I can never know truely what is in her heart. But she went through a kosher conversion, and is open and proud to be Jewish, as well as keeps a kosher home, and shabbos observant. Did u ever see how she answers reporters about her Jewishness? There is a lot to learn from her.

I'm surprised that some question Donald trumps friendship torwards Jews. If he hated us so much he would never allow his daughter to convert. People say that she is his favorite and he is very fond of Jared Kushner.
In case you didn't know the kushners are a religious wealthy family from new Jersey. They donated the main modern orthodox school there.

You really support Trump?
When a candidate is supported by the most notorious hate group in the US, the KKK, and has openly antisemetic supporters at his rally's and in Twitter and the only thing he promises to do is dismantle the Iran deal- likely further de-stabling an already anti-Semitic country (look, I don't like that it passed in the first place, but honestly what do you think is going to happen if it's suddenly gone? Trump criticizes Obama and Hillary for pulling out of Iraq too soon and destabilizing the region leaving room for ISIS, what could he actually do to Iran aside from inciting a full out war?) Do you really think Jews here or In Israel will be safer?

And don't be fooled that he is not his supporters. He brings out this behavior from his supporters and doesn't stand up for us and tell them they are wrong.

Hate is wrong. Trump brigs out Hate. Don't kid yourselves

Ivanka has embraced the movement of Modern Judaism.

It's not for me and its not for you. But it is what she has been presented with as a valid stream of Judasim. I dare say that in Chabad circles there is also a deviance from how we would like Jews to dress.

Ivanka is a dedicated wife, mother, daughter and sister. She keeps a Kosher, Shabbosdik, Jewish home.

As far as trusting what her father says about Eretz Yisroel. It is almost laughable that you would doubt a man who says what he thinks and seems unable to say things that are politically correct. It is his truthful statements that keep getting him in trouble. He honesty shines even more in contrast to the other candidate who says whatever will bring more money and power with a total disregard for the truth.

Trump or Stalin - Our Choice
To set up a dictatorship it is necessary to control the media.
The mainstream media has been utterly supportive of Stalinary.
She has threatened to shut down the voices that oppose her. Right now Roger Stone is facing law suits to prevent his project to verify voter machine manipulation.

Stalinary's supporters are vicious and violent. Only the mainstream media does not report the incidents. One of the reasons Trump is not doing so well in the polls is that people are afraid to say to the pollsters that they support Trump. Like in Russia where you could not say anything against Stalin because you might be reported.

A dictator needs to have be able to operate without the interference of laws that apply to the population.
The Attorney General is a Stalinary loyalist. It is amazing that the secret meeting on the tarmac was discovered. And it is clear now that the AG is blocking the FBI from completing their job.
Now that the NYPD is involved - thanks to a disgraced Congressman - maybe we will start to see law enforcement.

The only way Stalinary is still running for office is that powerful people in powerful positions have been compromised by corruption. Their interests are for themselves. They do not care about 'We The People.'

Donald J Trump says he is going to Drain the Swamp.
Lets give him a chance to Make America Great Again.

America is a free country. We are free to vote away our freedom. That is what this election is about. Vote Trump or Vote for Stalin.

FOR THOSE OF YOU VOTING FOR HILLARY, OR NEVER TRUMP:
DO YOU WANT OUR COUNTRY CONTINUE TO GO INTO MAJOR DEBT.
DO YOU MIND PAYING MUCH MORE FOR HEALTH INSURANCE.
DONYOU WANT A GOVERNEMT WHO HAS BEEN PAID OFF BY THE ARABS, AND HAS NO INTEREST IN DEFENDING THE ONLY JEWISH STATE OF ISRAEL!
DO YOU WANT A GOVERMENT WHO WILL DEFEND US AGAINST TERORESTS LIKE ISIS OR NOT.
DO YOU WANT A PRESIDENT WHO WOULD RATHER PROTECT THE MUSLUM BROTHERHOOD LIKE HOLLERY DID TO EGYPT OR SOMEONE WITH ISRAELS SICURITY IN MIND.
ARE YOU HAPPY WITH THE DEAL OBAMA AND HILLERY DID WITH IRAN FOR THEM TO HAVE NUCLIER AND LOTS OF CASH.
WOULD YOU RATHER TO PAY FULL TUITION OR WOULD YOU PREFER GETTING VOUCHERS AND CHOOSE YOUR OWN SCHOOL TO USE THEM FOR.
THERE IS MANY MORE REASONS TO VOTE FOR TRUMP .
IF YOU STILL CHOOSE TO VOTE HILLARY, YOU WILL ONLY HAVE YOURSELF TO BLAME FOR THE COUNTRY YOU WILL LEAVE YOUR CHILDEN AND GRANDCHILDREN!

I do not think these comments were made by Chassidim.
But they need to be addressed anyway.

#41 mentions the KKK.
It is not the job of a candidate to condemn supporters. Anyone is free to support the candidate of their choice.
BUT - when the candidate endorses a group - That is relevant! Black Lives Matter is a black supremacist group that endorses Hillary. They are against police. Against law and order. They are anarchists. They are well funded. OK - so they support Hillary... but the problem is... she supports them!
Donald Trump does not support KKK. Hillary supports BLM. If you don't believe BLM are dangerous, then read their website.
Hillary also supports Muslim supremacists.

#45 Says to Daven and not vote.
I am of the understanding that Yaakov Avinu Davened and prepared for war.
Yes, Daven please! But we are given the opportunity to vote for our freedom. We should do it.

# 46 The organization known as J Street put out a video showing that Trump is pro-settlements. Interestingly enough, J Street is trying to show that Trump is dangerous. lol. But to those of us who are interested in strengthening settlements - the video is encouraging.
Trump has also spoken about the education that Arab children get in Eretz Yisroel and that the anti-Jewish propaganda has to be stopped. He thinks there can only be peace if Arabs learn to respect Jews.
Your comment is that you imagine he will be like the others. Wrong. It is Hillary who is like the others. Ever hear of the Olso Accords? Do you know who is responsible and how many lives have been lost because of it?

#50 It is so common that people who are against Trump use name calling and labeling but have no facts to uphold their opinion. Trump is a person who is not politically correct. He is an outsider. He cannot be bought by wealthy special interest groups. It frustrates the Washington insiders so they call him names. And buffoons think they will sound intelligent if they also call Trump names.

Clinton is dangerous for Israel and sheva mitzvos
Clinton criticized legislative attempts in Israel to restrict left-wing organizations and expressed shock over growing discrimination against Israeli women. She mentioned cases of IDF soldiers leaving during performances of female singers.
Clinton will try to, chas v'chalila, make the kosel mixed. She will cut funding for institutions that "discriminate" against "rights" of others and try to force places to not discriminate" - like not performing "marriages" that are forbidden and taking away their non-profit status.

Whoever is criticizing Ivanka should be ashamed! What does the Torah say abkut treating a Ger? I bet she's more religious then most of you. She's modern orthodox, Chabad is not the only type of Jew. Maybe you should join neturei karta. They look at you as a disgraceful Jew. How dare you criticize her?! I'm ashamed for you.

Now regarding Trump for president. He will be the best president since Reagan. Sometimes you need to clean house, and get a little messy for things to work again. This country is going the way every other super power in history has gone if we don't stop it now. 20 trillion in debt. Ramped curroption. How can you even think about Hillary if you care about our future. Don't you want to leave your kids a better country then you were born into? Stop being brainwashed by a biased main stream media (MSM). You gotta be a zombie to not be able to see how biased they are. They want to keep everything the way it is. Corrupt system, where one hand washes another, using our tax dollars.

Trump is the only option, and I really hope every single one of you who is eligible to vote gets out there and votes for Donald Trump on Tuesday! I don't know about 8 years yet, but we have to give him a chance. What do we have to loose? And regarding who will be better for Israel, it's not even close. Of course Donald will be a great friend of Israel. He already is. Plus he promised to move the embassy to Jerusalem (which is the law, but no president has done so yet). I think it was even put into the platform at the RNC convention.

He comes across as a brash guy, but when it comes to things that count, he's actually very modest. He helps out many people without bragging about it. He paid off a Jewish family's mortgage, becaiuse they stopped to help when his limo broke down on the side of the road in the 80s.

I dont know him well personally, but I have many friends and partners who have. I even know some people that work for him. The one thing they all say is, that he's a total mench. He's very different in private. The trump most of you see is in front of large crowds. He feeds off of the energy, and goes with it. He's a really good man. Please don't associate him with kkk or other baseless MSM BS. How many times does he have to disavow? If you think about it, he doesn't want to give them any attention and give them the satisfaction. He's trying to just ignore it. You think he would hate his favorite child? Seriously. Remember when he just stared down that guy with the kkk shirt in? He doesn't want to give them any platform. The one who should be questioned (but won't be becaiuse of the biased MSM) is Hillary. Do you know who her mentor was? A "former" kkk grand wizard. I won't mention his name. If you really care, you should do your own research and not just be another MSM zombie.

I hope we wake up on Wednesday to a better future. One that has obama and Clinton in the rear view mirror. Every vote counts, even in New York. If we help him pull off an unprecedented win here in New York for a (R), it's over. So you all can really make a difference this time.

God bless you all.

#65 Thank You
Thank you for taking the time to write what I was thinking.

I will add that Black Lives Matter is a black supremacist group. It endorses Hillary - but she endorses it back. Not so with Trump and KKK.
BLM is a well funded, dangerous group that is against law and order - and Hillary, along with Obama - embraces it. That is much worse than Trump not responding to KKK. He has no say over who they support.

Open borders or not, that is the question.
It's the question every Jew should be asking. The answer is obvious. Vote Trump. Hillary is bought and paid for by the Saudis. This has been proven. They donated to her foundation and received State Department gifts in return. What will they get now? Open borders? The Saudi government (we now know for a fact) has funded Al Queda, ISIS - our enemies. Hillary's foundation is funded by them. How can ANY JEW vote for Hillary with good conscience?

The most important characteristic of the USA compared to countries that existed previously is that while the other countries were essentially the private property of flesh-and-blood kings, handed down in their families, where the kings owned the land and the people and any rights the people would have were determined by the flesh-and-blood king, the USA was founded on the idea that humans get our rights from our Creator, and government does not have any power to take them away or to order us around, rather the government is supposed to work for us.

Trump has published a list of 20 judges which he has promised he will pick from for appointing Supreme Court justices. Every one of them is an "originalist", i.e. a person who believes judicial decisions should reflect our Constitution and Declaration of Independence as our Founders intended. Hillary Clinton by contrast wants to appoint judges who are in sync with "modern" theories like abortion on demand, same-sex marriage, and gender as a psychological construct rather than a biological fact. In 2015 she gave a speech advocating unrestricted abortion on demand in which she said "we" have to change deep-seated religious beliefs, the "we" of course being people who think like she does. She will also further push Obama administration policies that have repeatedly put Christian bakers and florists out of business for declining to provide services for "weddings" where the participants are other than one man and one woman -- the next step will be to censor sermons (because in the opinion of these self-defined superior people, is "hate speech"), take away tax-exempt status from any religious entity that refuses to perform "marriages" where the participants are other than one man and one woman, outlaw schools that are gender-segregated, and who knows what else. In general she wants religion to be about getting to pick the tunes sung at services, not about how a person should live his or her life, this is obvious from the fact that she repeatedly uses the expression "freedom of worship" as opposed to "freedom of religion".

For these reasons, as a believing and practicing Jew, I have to vote for Trump.

Trump on school choice - additional $20 billion to help parents
Regarding education an issue of interest to many Jewish voters David Peyman, the Trump campaigns national director of Jewish affairs, told The Algemeiner on Monday that, as president, Trump would add an additional federal investment of $20 billion in school choice programs, understanding the fact that currently if you send your kid to a Jewish day school or, for that matter, a Catholic school, you are effectively funding two school systems. One is the public school system through property taxes, and the second is the private school through your tuition.
Trump, Peyman said, recognizes the fact that there should be some relief there. This will be done by reprioritizing existing federal dollars. We will give states the option to allow these funds to follow the student to the public or private school they attend. Distribution of this grant will favor states that have private school choice, magnet schools and charter laws, encouraging them to participate.
