Join an uncommon conversation about Passover, tradition, and innovation in a workshop with Eileen Levinson, founder of, the world’s first crowdsourced Haggadah. is an online workspace for Jews of all backgrounds to upload, exchange and personalize Passover haggadot. Reinvent your Passover seder by curating commentaries, film clips, artworks, and songs from an ever-growing crowdsourced collection on the website. Add your own submissions to the communal digital library. Create a publishable haggadah for the 21st century.  Families, groups, or classes can also use to create a group hagaddah.

Evening includes refreshments and a tour of Arthur Szyk and the Art of the Haggadah.
