MAKER SPOTLIGHT: rebekah erev

I am a queer, Jewish, feminist artist who works in object-making, performance and the written word. I created a set of divination cards based on the cycle of the moon called: Moon Angel/Malakh Halevanah Cards.

They are based on this non-patriarchal teaching in Judaism that angels are feelings. So when you have a feeling, it’s as if an angel has visited you.

There are 29, for the cycle of the moon, with a book that I wrote.

My cards use Yiddish as opposed to Hebrew to center on the Bund, a socialist movement from Eastern Europe that was formed in response and opposition to Zionism.
