Israeli President Reuven Rivlin checked his official residence for chametz (leavened products) Thursday night, with his 10-year-old grandson Shay.

During the inspection, all the pieces of chametz that Shay scattered were collected, and tomorrow the president will bring them to be burned.

The president and his wife Nechama will hold their Passover seder tomorrow night together with 22 family members and two lone soldiers: Corporal Charlotte Peled-Davidovici, commander of a tank in Battalion 196, who immigrated to Israel from Britain, and Sergeant Ross Morrison Allen, a Duvdevan soldier who immigrated to Israel from the United States.

The festive Seder table will be filled with traditional holiday dishes along with various Israeli dishes and dishes, which were consoled by the dedicated kitchen staff of the President's Residence after the kitchen was properly prepared for Passover.

Among the delicacies to be served at the seder table will be: chopped liver, gefilte fish, roast beef, and coconut flavored dessert. In addition, as is her custom every year, Nechama prepared the traditional latkes from Matza flour, which are beloved by her children and grandchildren.

The president, who sits at the head of the table, will hide the afikoman from his grandchildren, who will attempt to steal it from him.
