Illinois Shluchim Join Pre-Seder with Governor

L-R: Rabbi Eli Langsam, Chabad of Peoria, Rabbi Avrohom Kagan, Gov. Pritzker

Illinois Shluchim were on hand last night at Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s pre-Seder Seder in Springfield, Ilinois. The annual seder with the Illinois governor is a tradition going back since before anyone can remember.

Gov. J.B. Pritzker and first lady of Illinois M.K. Pritzker hosted their first Passover Seder at the governor’s mansion last night. Around a hundred people attended including jewish lawmakers, gubernatorial employees, rabbis from around the state and plenty of friends. The food was all kosher and catered by Zelda’s in Skokie. The matzah ball soup was described as “delicious” by one guest and “fluffy” by another.

Shluchim Rabbi Avrohom Kagan, Director of Government Affairs and Director of Chabad of River North and Fulton Market, and Rabbi Eli Langsam, Director, Chabad of Peoria, Ilinois were also on hand.
