Weekly Roundup - 5/22/23

This week: In a new photo essay that honors of the 75th anniversary of the Nakba—when Zionist militias drove more than 750,000 Palestinians out of their homes to establish a Jewish-majority state—Palestinian contributors to Jewish Currents submitted photographs that speak to their families’ experiences of exile. Plus, culture editor Claire Schwartz introduces “covering,” a poem by Fred Moten.

From the newsletter, contributing editor Joshua Leifer examines the Israeli government’s strategy of “conflict management” in Gaza. And Gazan essayist Kholoud Balata recounts her experience of the most recent round of bombings.
