Provisions was a column that ran biweekly in Jewish Currents from April 3 – July 20, 2020. Conceived as a way of sharing and reflecting on poems held close as we confronted the first wave of the Covid-19 pandemic, the pieces took on new forms after the murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police triggered a global uprising against anti-Black racism.
This Winter Gift collects the columns into a beautiful perfect bound book alongside the poems discussed in the pieces, with new illustrations by Anya Levy.
