The artist and sole human behind Allie & Tess, Allie McHaley (née Cogan), is a Jewish artist based in Spencer, Indiana. Born and raised in Cherry Hill, NJ, Allie spent much of her time actively engaged in Jewish life. Summers at overnight camp, evenings in Hebrew School, many weekends spent engaged in youth group events, much of Allie’s initial creative expressions came through this connection to Judaism. 

As is true for many, that connection has waxed and waned over time. Living in rural Indiana has proven to be a barrier to regular involvement in the local Jewish community. Towards the end of 2019, Allie felt a strong need to reconnect to her Jewish roots, and thus began the Judaica collection. 

Ritual, ceremony, and symbolism have a strong ability to connect and heal. In this ever-changing Judaica collection, you can expect to find jewelry alongside ritual objects such as Mezuzot. Here you’ll find truly one-of-a-kind gift for the next Jewish celebration in your life!
