Thea Glassman reports for THE FORWARD that Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner have been given a heter to travel by car following Donald Trump’s inauguration tomorrow.
In an interview with Kol Barama radio, Mark Zell, the chair of the Republican Party in Israel, said that the Kushners have been granted special heter by a rabbi to use a vehicle because of “safety” concerns.
The Forward report does not mention which rov or posek granted the heter.
