Mission & Vision

Our Mission: Custom & Craft is a nonprofit design lab using technology, art and new media to imagine new formats for engaging with ancient traditions. Founded in 2011, our online platforms Haggadot.com, HighHolidaysAtHome and Custom & Craft make home-based Jewish ritual accessible, meaningful, and diverse – giving individuals of all faith backgrounds the tools to create for themselves and to discover the other creators in their community. 

Our Vision: Judaism can be beautiful and welcoming. Custom & Craft believes Judaism can look and feel that way too. We envision a world in which every Jew, and the Jew-curious, regardless of background, can find a place for themselves in Jewish life through thoughtfully-designed products and media.

How We Do It: Custom & Craft Jewish Ritual is a design lab for the Jewish community, experimenting with technology, media and user experience to imagine new formats for engaging in ancient traditions. Our platforms, Haggadot.com and Custom and Craft enable more than 500,000 users annually to make their own haggadahs and other self-guided materials for Jewish ritual. We facilitate new product development through collaborations with leading Jewish organizations and thinkers across a diverse spectrum of perspectives.
