President Trump and members of his family, including first daughter Ivanka Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner, marked the first night of Hanukkah on Tuesday night.

“Wishing all of those celebrating #Hanukkah around the world a happy and healthy eight nights in the company of those they love,” the president wrote.

Kushner and Ivanka Trump, who are Orthodox Jews and serve as senior White House advisers, marked the holiday on Twitter, sharing a photo of their family celebration.


Former President Barack Obama joined other public figures to mark the day, tweeting, “Happy Hanukkah, everybody, from the Obama family to yours. Chag Sameach!”

Many lawmakers took to social media to share messages marking the first night of the holiday, sharing images displaying a menorah or dreidel in their tweets.
