In a special video message, President Obama offers his warmest wishes to people across the country and around the world celebrating the sacred Easter and Passover holidays.
For the seventh year in a row, President and Mrs. Obama host the annual White House Seder.
On Tuesday, January 13, White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough joined Members of Congress; France’s Ambassador to the U.S., His Excellency Gérard Araud; the American Jewish Committee (AJC); and hundreds of people from the local Jewish community and many other Jewish organizations at “A Gathering of Solidarity and Remembrance With the People of France and Its Jewish Community” at Congregation Adas Israel in Washington, D.C.
President Obama is committed to working with all Americans to create the brightest future for our country. Since taking office, the President has demonstrated that his vision includes the very issues that are of vital importance to the American Jewish community, from rebuilding the economy, fighting discrimination and making sure that every American has access to quality health care, to preventing Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons and strengthening the U.S.-Israel relationship.
Working together, we can strengthen our economy, revitalizing our schools, and out-innovating our global competitors. Stay involved at WhiteHouse.gov/engage.
