President Donald Trump will host a Seder — a traditional Passover feast — at the White House on Monday night, The Times of Israel reports.

It is uncertain which members of the administration will attend. Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner, one of his top advisers, is Jewish. And Kushner's wife, Ivanka, who is Trump's daughter, converted to Judaism.

The newspaper reported that Trump is the first president with immediate family members who are Jewish.

Monday is the first night of Passover, which marks the ancient Jews' exodus from Egypt.

Presidential-led Seders became a tradition after being started by then-President Barack Obama in 2008.

Meanwhile, Trump's official schedule makes no mention of a White House Seder, Haaretz reported.

But his last official function is scheduled for 4 p.m., which could free him up to attend a Seder that evening, according to the newspaper.
