Obama hosts Passover seder at the White House

U.S. President Barack Obama hosted a Passover seder at the White House Monday night together with his wife Michelle and a small group of Jewish and non-Jewish staff and family. This is the third year in a row in which Obama has hosted a seder.

The tradition started in 2008 when, after a long day on the campaign trail, then-Senator Obama gathered a group of staff members for an impromptu seder in Pennsylvania.
