    Default Obama Passover Seder: First Ever Held At White House

    President Obama and his family plan to mark the second night of Passover Thursday with friends and aides at a White House seder. The holiday celebrates the Jewish exodus from Egypt after 400 years of slavery and begins at sundown tonight.

    The White House, which listed the event on the president's schedule, is being mum about any details of the dinner. Officials are sharing neither the guest list or menus, with a spokeswoman calling the dinner a "private" event.

    Technically it begins at sundown tonight, but kudos to him for making the effort.

    I've always wondered if that smiley used in the OP is an orthodox Jewish dude.

    Great. Now our president is an ultra-liberal satanic communist socialist left-wing Muslim Jewish patriarch... which will only stir up the attack dogs even more.

    Indeed. It's a really nice gesture. I'm beginning to believe all that NF stuff they say about him.

    Can non-Jewish people even celebrate the festival? I thought religions were really picky about that?

    Obviously, that's an individual choice. Depends on the denomination as well. Haredi/Hasidic/Orthodox would probably be outraged at the thought. While Conservative and Reform would be more open.

    Hmm, k...did not know that. I just know that no non-Catholic can receive communion, for example...

    Apparently, Michelle Obama's first cousin is a Rabbi. Article below is very interesting, and includes information about Black Jews in America.
