Milton Students Take Part in White House Event

March 26, 2021

The White House invited MILTON students to participate in the White House Virtual Passover Celebration. Representing children across the nation and the world, our students opened the program by singing the order of the seder. MILTON students later sang Ma Nishtana (4 Questions) and Dayenu.

Thank you to President Joe Biden and First Lady Dr. Jill Biden, to Vice President Kamala Harris and Second Gentleman Douglas Emhoff, and to all the special guests for hosting and leading a meaningful and inclusive celebration of Passover. The unforgettable event was capped by a shout out to MILTON students from Vice President Harris. Enjoy a video with outtakes of our students from the program.

Happy Passover!
