This Year’s Most Heartwarming Seder Story Comes Via Twitter

Samantha Gross, an American intern at the London Evening Standard newspaper, told her heartwarming story on Twitter where she first found her Seder.

She saw this tweet from a London-based CNN journalist who she follows on Twitter.

She takes him up on his offer and he picks her up and drives her to his parents’ house in North London where they make a young woman from Schererville, Indiana, feel very welcome.

Read the 15 tweet sequence here. Or her Evening Standard story, here.

Bravo to @samanthajgross and, especially, to @Masters_JamesD and family!
