Kurtz calls out White House's Passover faux pas

Washington Post media critic Howard Kurtz took some delight in poking fun at the White House press office Thursday, which accidentally sent out its daily guidance to reporters including internal notes.

"Apparently Jewish here and in neighboring states are now calling wondering why they have not been invited," a White House official wrote on an internal email exchange, suggesting changes to Obama's daily guidance. (Obama is set to host what is thought to be the first presidential Seder this evening.)

Kurtz, who is Jewish, poked fun from Twitter:
Whichever WH aide said "Jewish...are now calling" is undoubtedly a goy.


"Goy" is a slang word in Yiddish often used to refer to non-Jews.
