Eileen is a graphic designer and artist living in Los Angeles. Her installations, posters, videos & web projects encourage collaborative rethinking of Jewish ritual & tradition. She is a graduate of the MFA Design program at CalArts, and has been a Senior Lecturer at Otis College of Art & Design. Eileen is the creator of Haggadot.com, a website for Jews of any background to upload, exchange and personalize an original Haggadah for Passover. The site hosts over one thousand selections of user-generated Haggadah content from around the world. In 2011, Jewish Daily Forward reviewed the site as “the most exciting new Haggadah” of the year.
