(PHOTOS): Trump celebrates Hanukkah, Jerusalem at White House

A very stylish Ivanka Trump joined the rest of her family including her husband and children at the White House to celebrate an ‘especially special’ Hanukkah.

This is only one day after the president declared Jerusalem Israel’s capital and setting off criticism and clashes.

The 36-year-old mother-of-three was all smiles alongside her husband, Jared Kushner, and children – Arabella, 6, Joseph, 4 and one-year-old Theodore.

They were inside the East Room of the White House Thursday night where they joined her father and the first lady who hosted a Hanukkah reception.

During the reception, Ivanka shared a video to her Instagram account showing Arabella and Joseph participating in the ceremony by lighting the first candle on the Menorah while the crowd sang ‘Ma’oz Tzur’.

The children looked adorable as Arabella sported a patterned navy blue dress and her younger brother wore a navy blue blazer and pants.

The first daughter, who converted to Judaism when she married Jared, was photographed earlier in the evening stepping out of her DC area home to head to the White House while sporting a matching Alexander McQueen black and gold sweater and pleated skirt.

As she is seemingly always in style like her step-daughter, Melania looked effortlessly chic while sporting a sleeveless black dress for the event.

The First Lady was seemingly chipper after having a busy day where she answered questions from children during a visit to the Children’s National hospital in DC.

President Donald Trump made remarks at the ceremony about Israel in wake of his decision to declare Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

He entered the East Room and declared ‘Jerusalem’, according to reports.

‘Right now I’m thinking about what’s going on and the love that’s all over Israel and all about Jerusalem,’ Trump said.

The president broke with decades of U.S. policy with the Jerusalem announcement, putting the United States at odds with most other countries. The European Union, Germany, Britain, France, the Pope and key Arab allies have denounced the move.
