Judaism is getting a boost from a surprising direction – Ivanka Trump, daughter of business tycoon Donald Trump, has decided to convert to Judaism in honor of her engagement to her boyfriend Jewish businessman Jared Kushner.
The 27-year-old former model and current vice president of real estate development and acquisitions at the Trump Organization, is considered to be her father's business heir.
Trump has successfully joined her father's real estate empire and announced on Wednesday that she would be heading a project to build a Trump luxury hotel in the Israeli Red Sea city of Eilat.
Trump and Kushner plan to get married some time next year, and following her husband-to-be's request, Ivanka has begun the conversion process at the Kehilath Jeshurun Synagogue in Manhattan's Upper East Side.
Twenty-seven-year-old Kushner is the perfect match for Trump – just like his future wife he was born into an economic empire, as his father, Charles Kushner is a wealthy entrepreneur and real estate mogul whose capital is estimated at billions of dollar.
The family's assets include the prestigious newspaper, the New York Observer, which Jared has been running for the past few years.

Everyone I am talking to is getting antsy about who will be leading the U.S. soon.
In one week we shall be in the midst of election day. The polls have a clear winner, Barack Hussein Obama over McCain by double digit percentage points. I have already decided to vote for Obama, mostly cause he really does mean change. McCain just seems really tired and the last 8 years have been grueling. It is time for change.

Former Secretary of State Colin Powell crossed party lines this morning to endorse Sen. Barack Obama for president, the most prominent GOP defection yet of the 2008 campaign.
Powell said he had watched both Obama and Sen. John McCain in the last "six or seven weeks," since the national political conventions, and paid special attention to how they reacted to the nation's worsening economic situation.
"I must say, he seemed a little unsure about how to approach the problem," Powell said of McCain. "He didn't have a complete grasp of the economic problems we have."
Powell also expressed concerns about McCain's selection of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as his running mate. "I don't believe she's ready to be President of the United States, which is the job of vice president," Powell said, adding that it raised "some questions in my mind" about McCain's judgment.

If I had a dollar for every blink, twitch and sarcastic eye-roll from McCain, I would be able to solve the financial crisis myself.
It is obvious that Obama is going to be the next president. Just check this video out and see just a snippet of what was almost 90 min of Obama getting under McCain's skin.
