- supermodel @karliekloss, who converted to Judaism last year, is featured on the cover of @voguemagazine‘s August edition.
- Kloss discusses her conversion and marriage to Josh Kushner, founder and managing partner of the investment firm Thrive Capital and brother of Jared Kushner.
- “Changing part of who you are for someone else can be seen as weak. But you know what? Actually, if you’ve been through what I’ve experienced, it requires you to be anything but weak.

It was only after many years of studying and talking with my family and friends and soul searching that I made the decision to fully embrace Judaism in my life and start planning for a future with the man I chose to marry.”
- She also pointed out her special connection with the day of rest. “Shabbat has brought so much meaning into my life. It helps me reconnect to the actual world,”
