The Four Seasons Resort is hosting “Pesach on the Mountain,” a 10-day kosher ski vacation, billed as “an exclusive Pesach vacation that offers supreme accommodations” on its website. The 2017 accommodations were sold out. Passover tourism is common, as the holiday requires the observant to remove all leavened products from their homes, use separate dishes that only come out once a year, and deep clean their cooking equipment.
Trump and Kushner are not the first orthodox Jews to serve in an administration. But it’s unclear whether the couple’s travel is in line with previous administration officials, since the couple has a much higher profile. It’s unusual in the first 100 days of an administration, especially as many White House staffers and high-level officials have logged long hours and most weekends…
Here’s hoping ‘Empress Melania’ agreed to give up her weekend, or we’re due for some more headline-making tweets by tomorrow evening.
No Trump senior staff are on Air Force One, and none are meeting him in Florida this Easter weekend, a White House aide tells @jeneps.

(The White House Easter Egg Roll isn’t until Monday, and it’s still not clear whether Melania will be there. Most schools take a vacation week, I’m told, so Barron’s schedule shouldn’t be an issue.)
