- Ivanka Trump and her daughter were spotted Sunday morning on their way to a Miami synagogue to help provide aid packages for Israeli civilians
- The former first daughter, 42, held hands with her eldest Arabella Rose, 12, en route to their local place of worship in North Miami Beach, Florida
- It also marks the first time she’s been pictured in public since testifying in Donald Trump’s $250 million civil fraud trial in New York last week
The former first daughter, 42, held hands with her eldest Arabella Rose, 12, en route to their local place of worship where they packed supplies for people who were forced from their homes by the barbaric Hamas attack on October 7.
Ivanka, who was raised Christian, converted to Orthodox Judaism to marry her husband Jared Kushner in 2009 and they are now raising their children in the same faith.
Her appearance in North Miami Beach on Sunday morning also marks the first time she’s been pictured in public since testifying in Donald Trump‘s $250 million civil fraud trial.
Her volunteering mission comes as the US, Israel and Hamas were believed to have reached a tentative deal to free dozens of women and children held hostage in Gaza in exchange for a five-day ceasefire in the embattled region.
As part of the detailed, six-page agreement, all parties would freeze combat operations while ‘an initial 50 or more hostages are released in smaller groups every 24 hours’, according to the Washington Post.
However, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has denied any such agreement being in place.
Ivanka’s spokesperson said on Sunday that the former White House official was on her way to pack supplies for displaced Israeli civilians when she was photographed.
‘There are a lot of people from the kibbutz’ that need basic necessities, and their local synagogue has sent hundreds of pallets of supplies over the last month all packed by volunteers each day,’ they said.
Kushner, 42, wasn’t present for Ivanka’s trip to the synagogue on Sunday – but she posted pictures with him and all three of their kids at the Country Bay Music Festival in the city six days ago.
On Sunday, Ivanka wore her hair loose with a center parting as she sported an ivory button-down dress clinched at the waist with a belt, and white-and-gold sneakers.
Her look was completed by a brown-and-beige leather handbag, paired with small teal earrings adding a splash of color to the outfit.
It comes after she was probed by prosecutors about her role in securing loans for the Trump Organization during her blockbuster appearance on the stand on November 8.
Her testimony ended with fireworks when one of her father’s lawyers accused the New York state attorneys of laughing while she reminisced about her work for her family’s company.
Ivanka spent five hours on the stand answering a multitude of questions about her father’s finances, their properties and her work with the Trump Organization in the lawsuit that could sink their Big Apple business empire.
She was the final witness for New York State in its case accusing Donald Trump and his two sons Don Jr. and Eric of inflating prices to secure better loan deals.
In the final moments of her testimony, lawyer Jesus Suarez erupted in fury and said: ‘I’m glad the government thinks this is funny’ after Ivanka discussed her ‘labor of love’ renovation project of the Old Post Office in Washington D.C.
Suarez said he wanted ‘the record to reflect the government is laughing at its own attempts to destroy this country,’ as her appearance on the stand came to an end.
The moment came shortly after Ivanka insisted there was nothing wrong with asking her husband Jared Kushner for advice in securing better deals for loans.
Speculation about Ivanka’s plastic surgery history was reignited when she testified at her father’s $250 million fraud trial this week, showing off a dramatic facial transformation as she walked into the court.
Dr. Alexander Z. Rivkin, founder of RIVKIN Aesthetics, believes she’s had work done on a number of her facial features, including her nose and chin.
‘Her lips are clearly enhanced with filler. In the photos from the front, they look good, but once she turns profile, the borders seem unnaturally prominent,’ he said.
Dr. Rivkin said Ivanka already had a naturally narrow jaw and small chin, and these ‘signature’ features ‘gave her a unique look,’ but it had now been lost.
‘She seems to have added, whether with filler or implants, significant volume to her chin and jaw. From the photos, it seems that she has somewhat over enhanced and over projected on her chin,’ he expanded.
As for the tip of her nose, it appeared to be ‘more projected and defined,’ the aesthetics expert added.
‘This is an effect she could have achieved with non-surgical rhinoplasty with filler,’ Dr. Rivkin said.
Ivanka also recently celebrated her October 30 birthday with an extravagant dinner hosted at the family’s Miami mansion.
The former White House senior adviser took to Instagram to share photos from the dinner she held at her waterfront mansion on the exclusive Indian Creek Island in Miami.
Ivanka was all smiles as she posed next to her Kushner and their three children, Arabella, Joseph, and Theodore, at the newly renovated property.
The couple spent more than a year renovating the 1.3-acre estate overlooking Biscayne Bay, which boasts six bedrooms and eight-and-a-half bathrooms.
