An anonymous tipster sent JBN this photo which was taken this evening during Tisha B’Av services at the Chabad synagogue in Washington DC, known as TheSHUL. The image came with the caption ‘Jared Kushner’ and was circled in blue.
Tisha B’Av, is 9th day of the month of Av and is the saddest day on the Jewish calendar, on which Jews fast, deprive themselves and pray. It is the culmination of the Three Weeks, a period of time during which Jews mark the destruction of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem.
TheSHUL is lead by Rabbi Levi Shemtov and is the synagogue that President Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka and his son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner have attended ever since moving to their 5.5 million dollar home in Washington’s Kalorama neighborhood.
While this photo is taken inside TheSHUL, that is Rabbi Levi Shemtov speaking, Jared Kushner does attend this synagogue and that does look like the back of Jared Kushner’s head, Jared was seen wearing those same sneakers in his morning jog, JBN cannot confirm the authenticity of this picture.
The Chabad synagogue, located near Dupont Circle, is relatively small. Over the years, many Jewish politicians have attended TheSHUL, including former senator Joe Lieberman and Treasury Secretary Jack Lew, several Jewish ambassadors posted in Washington, and Israeli Cabinet ministers.
On both days of Shavout, Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump were spotted going to pray at the TheSHUL together with Jared’s brother, Joshua Kushner and flanked by Secret Service agents on the half mile walk.
