Firepit Minyan's Outdoor Seder
Friday, April 26 (the last night of Pesach), 7 p.m.

Firepit Minyan's 13th annual unorthodox, full-participation Seder, complete with housemade Haggadah and musicians, will look to an unusual source for inspiration on the story of Exodus: the movie Smokey and the Bandit. If you think this means the Seder will be nothing but a bunch of cheap wisecracks, you’re wrong—we're gonna do what they say can't be done. And there is much opportunity for participation. Donations to cover table and chair rental will be collected, but no official fee is charged.

Join the Firepit Minyan Austin group on Facebook for emerging details, potluck information and to RSVP. Or email Chotzinoff@gmail.com.
