“Our mouths shall be filled with laughter, our tongues, with songs of joy. Then shall they say among the nations, “Hashem has done great things for them!”” Psalms 126:2 (The Israel Bible™)
A framed and dedicated copy of U.S. President Donald Trump’s speech recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel is kept up on the White House office wall of his daughter, Ivanka.
The Dec. 6, 2017 speech—“Remarks Regarding the Capital of Israel,” signed by the president, “To Ivanka, Love Dad”—is positioned alongside the handwritten lyrics of the band Journey’s rock classic “Don’t Stop Believin’ ” and pictures of her children, according to a report in Sunday’s Washington Post.
Ivanka underwent an Orthodox conversion to Judaism before marrying her husband, Jared Kushner. The couple joined the president in a visit to Israel in June, where Ivanka noted how meaningful it was for her to have the opportunity to visit the Western Wall in Jerusalem.
“It was deeply personal for me as you note standing at the Western Wall in a moment of privacy, because it was really just us, it was our family that was there,” she said. “It was beyond special—for each of these moments it’s hard to find the words to adequately describe them.”
Earlier this month, the United States announced that its embassy would move from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem on Israel’s 70th Independence Day.
