Photo Op Seeking Muslim -In-Chief Blows Off Reclining During Seder--Jewish Staffer Sychophants Give Him A Pass Even Though He Disrepects Their Religion
The tradition of President Obama sitting down for Jewish Seder meal began when he joined Jewish staffers in observing Passover while on the campaign trail and has continued as an annual White House event.
This year, Epicurious reports that some of his original staffers, including Obama's former campaign coordinator Eric Lesser, are gathering for an intimate dinner tonight, the first night of Passover.
From the Epi-Log post:
The small group--it's usually about 18 people--will feast on customary Passover dishes, including brisket, noodle kugel, and macaroons and in what has become a White House tradition, the guests contribute recipes for their family favorites--Lesser shares his mom's carrot soufflé made with matzoh meal.
The White House seder now takes place in the Old Family Dining Room, which is certainly a step up from the hotel basement where the original gathering was held. But, as Lesser explains, they've "really kept to the spirit of what it originally was, which was a small, intimate, family-focused arrangement." They observe all the seder rituals, dipping parsley into salt water, hiding the matzoh, and yes, asking the four questions.
Why is this night different from all other nights?
On all other nights we eat leavened products and matzah, and on this night only matzah.
On all other nights we eat all vegetables, and on this night only bitter herbs.
On all other nights, we don't dip our food even once, and on this night we dip twice.
On all other nights we eat sitting or reclining, and on this night we only recline.
