The academic year starts soon. If you’re applying to a preschool for your kiddies, it’s probably not as good as this preschool, but your kid probably couldn’t get into this one anyway, and I’m sure your little preschool is just fine for your child’s abilities and needs. Still, if you want to see how good parents apply to preschools for their truly gifted children, here’s a peek.

Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.

We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.

AAAAAHHHH I forgot that links were getting cut from this (in service to the very awesome design), so I wanna credit the vaccination joke to this brilliant piece by Paul William Davies in McSweeney’s: — there was initially a link to it from the word “vaccinated.”

My son visited a Jewish preschool to discuss admission for his own son, Elias. He made the mistake of making a remark mildly critical of Israel . He never heard back from the school. Learn from his error.

    Why did your son need to criticize Israel at a preschool?

    Can you provide us more context about the conversation? Because I doubt that it was an appropriate place and time for ANY political statement. Was it that he happened to see a map or flag of Israel in the school, and made an unsolicited comment about Israel being “illegal occupiers” or something like that?

After reading the elitist claptrap by a self absorbed mother, I had the overwhelming desire to choke the life out her! Just kidding, but what an obnoxious woman who will develop an equally obnoxious mentally ill child. God save us all from morons like this!
