COMMENTING CHARGES
Daily rate: $2
Monthly rate: $18
Yearly rate: $180

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
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.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at letters@tabletmag.com. 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.

Sarah’s artwork is always terrific! Shatner covering Lady Gaga would erase Amalek for sure and would also be great ammunition to use against any group contemplating harm to the Jewish people! We should consider sending a dose to Israel Apartheid Week supporters.

VAN, the emerging Jewish visual artist network, just published a piece on the Graphic Details show in Toronto. Lazarovic is one of the exhibiting artists. Check out our website to read this article, and much more!

Love it! There are a lot of annoying apps out there for sirens I’m waiting to try this year.

Rachel says:

Hey Sarah, I am looking forward to seeing your work at the Gladstone!

Congratulations one and all for utilizing Sarah Lazarovic’s imaginative illustrations to the noise problem–delightful insights all around–Looking forward to more capricious observations!

What a wonderful piece! I love the art and it’s so true that we are inundated with noise/sound. My congregation asks everyone to bring a box of noisy food (macaroni & cheese) that can be shaken like a grogger. The food goes to the food pantry after the service.

Hi men In my opinion this can be a excellent publish I will definetely continue reading your functions, well done. It is crucial to have high quality material on the internet, we can use them as a reliable supply for the tasks.Ive see clearly with enjoyment as well as Im sure I’m going to read the rest of the things you will write, great work man!.
