About the Program
Join an uncommon conversation about Passover, tradition, and innovation in a workshop with Eileen Levinson, founder of Haggadot.com, the world’s first crowdsourced Haggadah. Haggadot.com 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 haggadot.com to create a group hagaddah.
Evening includes refreshments and a tour of Arthur Szyk and the Art of the Haggadah.
Eileen Levinson is an innovative art practitioner, merging art, design, and Jewish life in reimagining Jewish ritual in the digital age. Levinson’s other Jewish ritual projects include a Deck of Prayer Cards, Conversion Paper Dolls, and she is currently working on a new site for creating a personal Kabbalat Shabbat. Levinson has an MFA in graphic design from California Institute of the Arts. She is currently art director at Deca TV and teaches at Otis College of Art and Design, and is a member of the Jewish Artist Initiative of Southern California.
