How celebrities celebrated Passover

By JOSEFIN DOLSTEN

(JTA) — How was this night different from other nights? We have the same kind of dinner as Jewish celebrities.

Like the rest of us, some of Hollywood’s Jews observed Passover this weekend — it turns out quite a few of them were eating matzah ball soup, looking for the afikomen and spending quality time with their families. Here are a few who shared their experiences on social media.

“Glee” actress Dianna Agron shared a video of herself getting in the mood for her seder by dancing to “Tradition” from “Fiddler on the Roof.”

Zach Braff shared a photo of himself and “Scrubs” co-star Sarah Chalke titled “Happy Passover.” (It’s not quite clear why they are holding goats, but it may be related to an animal-filled Easter celebration from which he also shared photos.)

Comedian John Mulaney isn’t Jewish, but he shared a photo of him looking for the afikomen and making a joke about the Four Sons from the seder. (His wife Annamarie Tendler is Jewish)

Is there a legit prize for throwing a #passover #seder for 12 family members? Ah who am I kidding. It was exhausting and great. #ilovemyfamily
