Elisheva Rudolph (nee Menchel) was born in New York, but spent her formative years in Minneapolis, Minnesota and St. Louis, Missouri. In 1995 she moved with her family to West Hempstead, New York. Elisheva graduated with a Bachelors degree in Graphic Design after studying in a joint major program at Stern College for Women and the Fashion Institute of Technology (F.I.T.).
Upon graduation, she took a number of advanced courses at FIT to further her skills in graphic and packaging design. While in college, Elisheva learned the art of quilting, enjoyed it as a hobby, and quickly saw it as a means of expressing her artistic talents. After becoming engaged, Elisheva wanted to create something unique for her chatan (groom) and decided to make him a quilted tallit bag and matching atara. After receiving many compliments on her work, Elisheva was encouraged to share her talents with others and sell her handcrafted creations. This led to the launch of Eli7Creations Handcrafted Judaica. In 2005, the Rudolphs made aliyah from Manhattan, New York. Elisheva, her husband Hillel, and their four children currently live in Ramat Beit Shemesh.
