During the intermediate days of Passover, the Governor of New Jersey, Jon S. Corzine, invited a group of New Jersey's Jewish leaders to celebrate a "Passover Seder" at his residence in Drumthwacket, N.J.  An entire Glatt Kosher Seder meal was elaborately prepared and a warm feeling pervaded through the evening. The Governor gave personal thanks to all the participants, and made note that he was especially thankful for all the prayers and wishes he received exactly two years ago during the Passover holiday when he was critically injured in an automobile accident.

This gala event was attended by over 100 leaders of the NJ Jewish community, the attendees included, U.S. Senator Frank Lautenberg, NJ Economic Czar Jerry Zaro, NJ Attorney General Ann Milgraum, NJ Commissioner of Health Heather Howard, Mayor of Newark, Corey Booker, newly appointed US Ambassador to the UN for Women's Affairs Meryl Frank, Minnesota Vikings owner Ziggy Wilf, numerous State Senators and Assemblymen and members of the NJ-Israel Commission.
After the Passover readings and communal singing, the crowd was addressed by the Governor and numerous communal leaders. 

Rabbi Yosef Carlebach, director of Chabad House at Rutgers University, and central and south New Jersey, participated with his son, Rabbi Mendy Carlebach of South Brunswick Chabad. At the Seder, the Chabad Rabbis presented all participants with special hand baked round shmurah matzoh with an instructional brochure regarding the holiday of Passover. The Governor also participated in the eating of Shmurah Matzah.
