Pop Up Pot Luck Seder?

Any interest in organizing this quickly for the non observant unaffiliated and (lets face it) lazy Jews (like myself) with no place to go and little inclination to put the WHOLE thing together? We can do pot luck pop up! BUFFET! Who's in?

      I wish I saw this a couple of days ago. I want to take my kids to at least a casual Seder but keep forgetting to plan ahead. I also saw a sign for one yesterday that apparently happened Thursday.

      What's the next feast?

        YOU are the ONLY responder! I guess there aren't many with the same needs. Maybe next year? Maybe if it were "planned" more in advance we'd have more takers. I SEDER SKYPED (patent pending lol) to get a little passovering in. Did nothing for my kids though ... to whom the "holiday" was marked with chocolate bunnies! Next year we will do better ... (not in Jerusalem.) It's hard to instill some sense of Jewishness when one is not religious ... at all. I so wish at least ONE restaurant did a Seder here like in other cities....

          There was this one but I didn't look for it until it was too late. We're not Jewish but I Have been to one inthe past and would like to take my kids and explain it to them.

        I'm in Calgary and have lost touch with any Jewish friends, most of whom don't have Seder themselves. One of the public ones like the one at the carriage house would suit me fine.

        It would be nicer to find one with a real family but that is a bit much to ask.

          I know that Calgary has a thriving reform Jewish congregation, I am sure they would have a Seder that is open to anyone interested irrespective of religion or religiosity. Or they will arrange for an invitation. This is what they do here in Edmonton.
