Obama to Host His Third Seder at the White House Tomorrow


obama-sederPresident Obama sent a Pesach  greeting РChag Sameach Рto Jews worldwide who will celebrate Pesach starting with the first seder tomorrow night. Obama will host his third White House Seder tomorrow.

From Obama:

My family and I send our warmest wishes to all those celebrating the sacred festival of Passover.

On Monday evening, Jewish families and their friends in America, Israel, and around the world will gather around the Seder table and retell the story of the Exodus, one of the most powerful stories of suffering and redemption in history. The story of Passover – which recalls the passage of the children of Israel from bondage and repression to freedom and liberty – inspires hope that those oppressed and enslaved can become free. The Seder, with its rich traditions and rituals, instructs each generation to remember its past, while appreciating the beauty of freedom and the responsibility it entails.

This year, that ancient instruction is reflected in the daily headlines as we see modern stories of social transformation and liberation unfolding in the Middle East and North Africa. Against the backdrop of change, we continue to pray for peace between Israel and her neighbors, while reaffirming our enduring commitment to Israel’s security.

As Jewish families gather for this joyous celebration of freedom, let us all be thankful for the gifts that have been bestowed upon us, and let us work to alleviate the suffering, poverty, injustice, and hunger of those who are not yet free. Chag Sameach.

  1. How sad that there will be Jews attending Obama’s “fake” seder rather than attending a proper seder led by Jews. Obviously, Obama has not learned one of the most important lessons of the Haggadah. At the end of Dayenu, we say how grateful we must be to G-d for bringing us to the Land of Israel. One of his court Jews should point this out to him. Dayenu with Obama!

  2. If you are going to make such outrageous bigoted statements about Obama ( since shfoch hamascha doesnt apply to him) that you mythologize your comments above then you ought to have the dignity to be quiet.

    Obamas positions regarding all money, military sharing, military trade, Israels competitive edge, and Israel’s right to defend itself has always been enthusiastically supported By obama. He has NEVER red lighted Israel on matters of security for lives.
    And that is not the case with regard to Bush who held israel back ( sharon) from january 2001 through September 2001 which had the highest rate of terror attacks up to that point in the history of Israel. Secondly, it was GW who pubicly chastized and threatened israel to move away from Arafats compound, a demand which served to boost Arafat and which served to insure that Arafat no longer had to be worried he would lose his life as arafat ramped up the intifada
