WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama plans to mark the start of Passover with a private Seder in the executive mansion.
Obama and first lady Michelle Obama invited friends and White House aides to mark the Jewish holiday with a meal on Monday. The Obama aides started the tradition during 2008 primary campaign; Obama made a surprise stop to meet with staffers who were sharing an impromptu meal in a hotel basement.
The event continued last year at the White House with a small group of aides and advisers.
