The White House Kitchen Goes Kosher

When President Obama and First Lady Obama hosted their annual Hanukkah Reception last week, the White House kitchen was koshered under the supervision of Rabbi Levi Shemtov of the Lubavitch Center of Washington. Check out this feature story on how the koshering was rapidly accomplished, published in The New York Times. This year's Hanukkah reception is the last before the 2012 election, and with more than 550 guests, it was the largest the Obamas have hosted. The menu and the guest list.
