         do?

                                  Answer:
   
   Aside from the honor, the issues are the same as any ordinary Easter
   Egg hunt. The public factor, however, is more critical. You do not
   want to give the impression that this is an approved Jewish activity.
   
   In general, we shouldn't let the "importance" of an occasion blind us
   to our Jewish values. Don't leave them behind just for a chance to
   meet the President. If you would ordinarily feel that it was not
   appropriate, religiously, it's important to say no in this case, too.
   
   Of course, if you insist on going, get the President's autograph.
