The house is within walking distance of TheShul of the Nation’s Capital. As Modern Orthodox Jews the Trump-Kushner clan observe the Sabbath, a day of rest from Friday evening at sunset through Saturday evening during which the family refrain from work, using electronics and driving, among other restrictions. So having a synagogue within close walking distance to their home is an obvious must.

Just last week, rumor had it that the young family of five would be renting a five-bedroom townhouse in Georgetown that was a short walk away from Kesher Israel, the Orthodox synagogue at the corner of 28th and N streets where insiders claim Kushner and Trump, who converted to Judaism before marrying her husband in 2009, will be attending.

  Trump's efforts to step away from private empire limited WASHINGTON — President-elect Donald Trump pledged to step away from his family-owned international real estate development, property management and licensing business before taking office Jan. 20. With less than two weeks until his inauguration, he hasn't stepped very far.Trump has canceled a handful of international deals and dissolved a few shell companies created for prospective investments. Still, he continues to own or control some 500 companies that make up the Trump Organization, creating a tangle of potential conflicts of interest without precedent in modern U.S. history.

As of now, neither Kushner nor Trump have official roles in President-elect Donald Trump’s incoming administration. But the president-elect has said that his older daughter (and by family consensus the undisputed favorite of the five Trump kids) would be “so good” at “so many things,” specifically involving her interest in paid maternity leave.

For his part, Kushner, a real estate developer and owner of the New York Observer, has been a trusted and influential adviser to his father-in-law since the very beginning of Trump’s whirlwind presidential campaign.

Since then the camera-ready couple, though both avowedly not politicos, have found themselves thrust into the Beltway spotlight, the subject of much cocktail party chatter since they began making scouting trips to the area in early December. Several houses were believed to be on their radar including Jackie Kennedy’s former home on N Street in Georgetown and a property in tony Phillips Park, the Foxhall enclave of McMansions.

Washington Fine Properties represented both sides in the transaction, according to Washingtonian magazine. WFP has been the go-to real estate company for Trumpers. Less than a month ago, Bill Moody, executive vie president of WFP, brokered the sale of philanthropist Adrienne Arsht’s former home to incoming commerce secretary Wilbur Ross. Washington Fine Properties was also involved in the sale of incoming treasury secretary Steve Mnuchin’s Washington home. No word on whether WFP is helping Kellyanne Conway, who will be counselor to the president come Jan. 20, find her D.C. digs, but we wouldn’t be surprised.
