Ever since his first campaign for President, President Obama has been running a Passover Seder, in which he celebrates the holiday of the Israel’s freedom, along with staff members and their families.

Along with the Seder, President Obama released this official statement:

 

Statement from the President on Passover

As we prepare for our fifth Seder in the White House, Michelle and I send our warmest wishes to all those celebrating Passover here in America, in the State of Israel, and around the world.

Tonight, Jewish families will gather with family and friends to celebrate with songs, wine, and food. They will read from the Haggadah, and retell the story that makes this holiday so powerful.

Last week, I visited the state of Israel for the third time, my first as President. I reaffirmed our countries’ unbreakable bonds with Prime Minister Netanyahu and President Peres. I had the chance to speak directly with young Israelis about the future they wanted for their country, their region, and the world. And I saw once again how the dream of true freedom found its full expression in those words of hope from Hatikvah, lihyot ‘am chofshi be’artzeinu, “To be a free people in our land.”

Passover is a celebration of the freedom our ancestors dreamed of, fought for, and ultimately won. But even as we give thanks, we are called to look to the future. We are reminded that responsibility does not end when we reach the promised land, it only begins. As my family and I prepare to once again take part in this ancient and powerful tradition, I am hopeful that we can draw upon the best in ourselves to find the promise in the days that lie ahead, meet the challenges that will come, and continuing the hard work of repairing the world. Chag sameach.

No news on freedom for Pollard.

  1. Please don’t be fooled….he also celebrate Ramadan!!!!! He is no friend to the Jewish State.

  2. We have a saying here in the USA: He speaks with a forked tongue! Beware of him Israel!

  3. Wren Stevens says:

    He talked about freedon of our people in his press release. who’s people? He’s not Jewish so is he referring to his muslim family members or his christian family members? No one really knows who or what he really is. Does he even attend any kind of religious service on a regular basis. He should have left this holiday alone and just wished everyone a Happy Passover. More and more disappointed in him every day.

  4. Yes Charlotte, we elected him to a SECOND TERM him by a large electoral majority because we believe him to be a satanic, serpentine liar, right? And on what planet have you been living?

  5. Michael K-n says:

    As long as First Seider is celebrated in the WH, nothing to make waves about.
    Thank you, Mr. President for greetings. M. Kerjman

  6. just wondering why do they say each time at Passover, "Next year in Jerusalem" are they hoping to return to Israel to celebrate the passover with their Jewish family members?

  7. Max Rambow says:

    Any excuse to make a political statement will do but is anything actually getting better? Obama's fruit is evil, not good.

  8. Susan Jordan says:

    YOU and YOUR CRONIES voted in a person who wants to CHANGE everything American! I live on this planet, Smart Ass, and he IS a liar & a phony (Muslim's ARE NOT Christians). He's anti-American, anti-Constitution, anti-Bible, anti-Jew,. He is a friend of terrorists, white-hater.

  9. Susan Jordan says:

    He will do anything to show that he is on your side. He also prays with Muslims – who HATE Jews! According to the Muslim teachings, it's OK to lie if your means justifies your ending agenda. He is out to destroy America!

  10. Yori Yanover says:

    And never rewinds!
