Dear ones,

There are many ways we can all be amplifying Palestinian voices right now.  We want you to know about the work of friends in two Feminist Palestinian collectives:  Falastiniyat (read this article by Alia) here in Seattle & Palestinian Feminist Collective.  In particular, it is only fitting for us to urge you to read their love letter to Palestine, here.  The Palestinian Youth Movement has compiled a stunning set of resources as well.  If you need a place to start thinking about ending U.S. military aid to the Apartheid state, here's one place.  You can find boycotts.  You can find Divestment campaigns.  You can move us closer to sanctions.  Speak about those things when you wake up and when you go to sleep, when you are at home and when you go on your way

So, keep doing what you do every day to smash whatever occupying state you live in while also trying to shift the resources of that state (while it still stands) toward indigenous people.  Like, sign this petition for federal recognition of the Duwamish tribe if you live where we live. 


Saturday, May 22, 7:30-9:30 PT - Zoom
Heart & Chutzpah 5781, Kadima annual fundraiser
There will be some learning with students and teachers from Kadima School, wisdom from chef and culinary historian Michael Twitty, and us sharing two ALL NEW never before been heard (except by all of Maia's neighbors while we practiced and played them in her yard) beginnings of songs, plus a song off the new album. The night will end with a community havdala. All of this will take place over Zoom (link to be sent May 20th, the Thursday before the event).

Saturday, May 29, 11am PT or at your leisure - NW Folklife On Demand Channel
We will be playing in the Big Jewish Show at the virtual 50th Annual Northwest Folklife Festival taking place on Memorial Day weekend (May 28-31). This is the 50th celebration, featuring over 6 program channels and a virtual marketplace! Check out the full schedule: nwfolklife.org/festival


We got physical CDs of our new album, Cradle Songs, Grave Songs, made locally in Seattle by Pip McCaslin at Realtime Pip, and they turned out beautifully! You can order yours on our Bandcamp if you haven't yet.

AND, last but not least, this past Shabbes marked the first time in over a year that we got to sing together in the same space, indoors without masks — a wonderful and strangely normal-feeling experience. We also took the opportunity to test out a CD of the new album in the car. It works! If you'd like to confirm, please enjoy hanging out with us for an 8-minute version of the album:
Just a little of each song

Love,
Brivele
