Kosher Hanukkah Bush

A friend reports from the White House:

The season has officially started early here, since the White House had its celebration last night, Tuesday, December 6. It really was quite an event, with the kitchen being kashered for the first time for an ALL kosher affair. (Last year there was kosher and non kosher food available). Laura Bush wanted it all kosher, she even supervised the Chabad supervisors! She had a tasting with three kosher caterers and selected one from Philladephia, (hard to believe one caterer told her to come to NJ to taste). There was lots of food... fishes, meat, stuffed cabbage, latkes, salad and suffganiot in the large dessert displays, with large dreydels, etc.
