US Vice President Mike Pence blessed the Jewish people in honor of Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement).

"On this holiest of Jewish days, may our Jewish friends be granted a Yom Kippur of atonement, forgiveness and inscription in the Book of Life," Pence tweeted.

US President Donald Trump's daughter Ivanka tweeted, "Wishing everyone an easy and meaningful fast and may we all be inscribed in the Book of Life. G'mar Hatimah Tovah! #YomKippur."

Ivanka converted to Judaism before marrying her husband Jared Kushner in 2009.

Pence is an evangelical Christian, and supports both Israel and the Jewish nation. During his time as Governor of Indiana, Trump signed a bill stating that Indiana would not invest in any company boycotting Israel. In May, Pence said that Israel is "America’s most cherished ally."
