WASHINGTON--The first night of Passover is Monday and Sara Netanyahu, the wife of Israeli Prime Benjamin Netanyahu is sending back to the U.S. with President Barack Obama--who landed in Israel Wednesday morning-- a gift of a silver Passover Seder plate.

Obama has held a seder at the White House every year that he has been president.

From the foreign pool report:

After hundreds of suggestions were received on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's Facebook page, Sara Netanyahu chose the gifts that she will give to U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama, to Sasha and Malia Obama, and even to the presidential dog, Bo.

Information received from the Israeli press office:
"Ms. Netanyahu will give Michelle Obama a silver Passover Seder plate that could be used atthe traditional Passover Seder that is held at the White House annually. To Sasha and Malia Obama, Ms. Netanyahu will give chains with silver medallions in the form of David's harp set with Roman glass. Ms. Netanyahu will give Bo a rubber hamburger toy."
