Ivanka Trump’s Beautiful Jewish Baby
For the first time in many years I’ve been closely following US politics–trying to figure out whom I should vote for.
Still pretty baffled by the 2016 presidential race, but it has been interesting to see how many Jewish connections there are among the candidates: Jewish Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton’s Jewish son-in-law, Donald Trump’s Jewish daughter, son-in-law, and grandchildren.
Mazal tov to the Ivanka Trump-Kushner on the birth of her “beautiful Jewish grandchild” (this is how his grandfather, Donald, referred to him) this past weekend. Not sure what I think of her grandfather, but Theodore James is definitely a major cutie! (Funny that my newest nephew, also born last week, is also a Theodore– Anatol Theodore Benjamin Weisberg*. Named after Josh’s grandfather, Opa Theo.) Much nachas!
*Anatol means “sunrise” in Greek. Isn’t that a gorgeous name? By the way, my son Yoel Elchanan is also named after Opa Theo– Theodore means “Gift from G-d,” similar to Elchanan “G-d granted.”
