President Barack Obama’s White House Passover seder on Monday night will be using the seder plate given to him last week when he was in Israel by Sara Netanyahu, the wife of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Once again, the Obama seder will be using the Maxwell House Hagaddah.
Hopefully I’ll have a complete menu later, but for those who want a sneak peak…I’m told the menu will feature brisket, kugel, matzah ball soup, haroset, raspberry ganache, meringue.
The guests will be largely the same as in 2012 and years prior, names in photo above–with the core group Obama 2008 campaign staffers who improvised a seder in Pennsylvania during the primary.
