The president also posted a video on social of him reading the Hagada for children. He spoke to the children about his childhood memories of Passover in Jerusalem before the establishment of the State of Israel.

Speaking to the children, he said “Even if we are not celebrating Seder night in the same way we do every year, but with just our closest family, do not forget the special Pesach traditions and songs. Apart from that, remember that the smaller the Seder, the greater your chances are of finding the Afikoman! See you soon, dear children. I wish you a happy holiday of freedom and may we all get back to our normal routines soon. And, of course, don’t forget to pick up the phone or Zoom to Granny and Grandpa, Saba and Savta, to wish them Chag Sameach and send a big, big hug from afar. Next year in Jerusalem. Next year, together.”
