For Information:

Firepit Minyan
Community Of Christ Church 2132 Bluebonnet Lane Austin  78704
Contact: Robin Chotzinoff
The Firepit Minyan meets in South Austin backyards to experience Judaism. Though beliefs range from agnostic to true believer, the group embraces the Jewish spirit of humor, arguing with God and the pursuit of menschiness. To paraphrase Mordecai Kaplan: Tradition has a vote here, but not a veto. You are invited to join this homey, messy, spiritual, funky, musical, exuberant, all-ages community.
