Trump Will Hold Last-Minute White House Seder

The White House plans to host a Passover Seder after all, according to Jewish Insider’s Daily Kickoff. Sources told Jewish Insider that the Trump Administration will indeed mark the holiday with a Seder Monday night, which is the first night of Passover.

Barack Obama began the tradition of hosting a Passover Seder at the White House in 2009.

The Times of Israel has reported that President Donald Trump, the first American president with an immediate family member who is Jewish, will host the Seder. It is unclear who else — including the president’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, and son-in-law, Jared Kushner — will participate. There are a number of Jews in the Trump administration, including Senior Advisor Stephen Miller.
