She is Jewish
When Ivanka Trump married Jared in 2009, she automatically converted to Judaism and took the name of Yael. In an interviews she had with Vogue, she recalls how much she enjoyed making this decision. “I am very modern, But I am also a very traditional person. I think that it is an interesting juxtaposition in the way I was raised as well.”
According to Ivanka, Judaism creates the perfect environment for family connectivity. Although she was raised as a Presbyterian Christian, Ivanka converted in July 2009 to Orthodox Judaism, after studying with Elie Weinstock from the Modern Orthodox Ramaz School.
