Ivanka Trump, daughter of and senior adviser to U.S. President Donald Trump, made a late-night visit on Thursday to the Ohel in Queens, N.Y., to pray at the grave of the Lubavitcher Rebbe—Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson.

According to the Chabad website COLlive.com, she was accompanied to the Old Montefiore Cemetery by Rabbi Zalman and Toba Grossbaum, directors of Chabad of Livingston, N.J., who are close to her husband, Jared Kushner, also a senior adviser to the president.

Ivanka Trump, who underwent an Orthodox conversion to Judaism and adopted the Hebrew name “Yael,” was presumably visiting to pray for her father’s re-election, the website said.

She made a similar visit with her husband prior to the 2016 presidential election.
