First White House Seder

White House officials believe that the Passover seder celebrated Thursday night by the Obama family and guests was the first ever seder dinner to be held in the White House by an American president, according to this article in the New York Times.  The Obamas, of course, are not Jewish, but they celebrated this Jewish holiday with aides and their families over a meal that included traditional favorites such as matzo ball soup, brisket, and kugel, prepared by the White House chef after consulting the family recipes of some of the participants.
