President Obama has his own Passover traditions, and there was some speculation this year about whether the silver Seder plate he received last week from Sara Netanyahu, wife of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, would make it onto his list. A spokesman confirmed that it would be on the table on Monday night, but the plate in question is obscured in both official White House photos. That’s a hard item to regift, so we’ll just assume it’s there.
