The White House tradition, which began on the 2008 campaign trail, brought together members of the White House staff, friends, and family for the traditional Jewish celebration.

Guests read from the Maxwell House Haggadah and dined on a meal of matzah ball soup, brisket, potato kugel, and a kosher for Passover chocolate cake.

"The Seder, with its rich traditions and rituals, instructs each generation to remember its past, while appreciating the beauty of freedom and the responsibility it entails," the president said in his Passover message.

The entire first family was in attendance, as were Valerie Jarret, Eric Lesser, Arun Chaudhary, and Herbie Ziskend.
