Passover at the White House: Here’s what we know

The annual White House Passover celebration has only begun in recent years.

  • The Passover celebrates the liberation of the Israelites from slavery in Egypt.
  • The annual White House Passover celebration unofficially began with former President Barack Obama.

The Biden administration marked the start of its second Passover in office with a virtual celebration and a number of messages from the White House.

The “People’s Seder,” the White House’s take on the ritual feast that marks the start of the holiday, took place Thursday and included messages from President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, second gentleman Doug Emhoff and Jewish-Americans across the country.
