The White House seder tradition will continue with US President Donald Trump at the helm, White House sources told Jewish Insider on Friday.
While it is yet unknown if Trump's daughter Ivanka, who converted to Orthodox Judaism, and her husband Jared Kushner will attend the Monday evening ceremonial meal in celebration of Passover, it seems likely.
Since Trump took office in November, Jared and Ivanka have both assumed White House roles. The Jewish world has watched as the first daughter and her husband received a special rabbinical pass to travel on Shabbat
for the inauguration, held a Shabbat dinner
at their home in the swanky Kalorama neighborhood of Washington DC, and even made hamentashen
with their children to celebrate Purim.
The White House seder was a tradition started by former president Barack Obama in 2009, who marked the holiday annually at the presidential residence.Ivanka Trump Visiting Ohel Of Lubavitcher Rebbe
