Rabbi Mordechai Lightstone and his wonderful wife, Chana and their family are once again doing way cool things at the Interactive portion of #SXSW 2015.

Starting off this Friday, March 16 at 7:30 PM, it’s #openShabbat at the Hilton Downtown Austin / Salon K – 500 E. 4th St. in Austin.  

You can meet tons of cool people in tech and digital media where you can escape the chaos and get a taste of a traditional Shabbat experience, wonderful food, great wine and tons of un-networking.

RSVP here on Eventbrite.

Everyone is welcome, and please bring your friends – no experience required… and oh, yeah…. please turn off your smart phone.  This is a chance to connect in the real world, face to face, and with other fellow humans

This year’s #openShabbat is powered by #JNFuture to bring even more awesomeness and funded by a grant by a Grassroots grant from the ROI Community.

New for 2015, you will want to check out the Kosher Carne Latin food truck, with celebrity chef Deborah Benaim, as seen on the #AskGaryVeeShow.

This year there’s an Indiegogo campaign to cover the final expenses for making all this goodness and fun happen. And there’s some amazing  perks when you take part.

There’s already a matching donor for the first  $1800 that is raised, meaning your donation is doubled!

So please, take a moment, check out the campaign and make it an awesome year at SXSW.

I hope to see you all there.

Let’s connect.

In the real world. 

And yes, please turn off your smart phone.
