We welcome a new, not entirely un-Jewish news website

Print Email

We take a break from our regularly scheduled yiddishkeit to point you to The Faster Times, which dubs itself “a new type of newspaper for a new type of world.” Launched yesterday afternoon, it’s a sort of news aggregator for smart people, providing not only curated links to interesting content elsewhere but also healthy dose of its contributors’ own reporting and analysis. It’s run by a number of Friends of Tablet—including its editor-in-chief, who we recently interviewed, and its deputy editor, whose father is the author of Marc Chagall, a biography in Nextbook Press’s Jewish Encounters series. We would also direct you to a launch-day Unsolicited Advice column on philandering British celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay, which is both funny and written by a Tablet contributing editor. Go take a look (ignoring the weirdly cropped headshots, which make all Faster Times contributors appear to have feathered hairdos). But then be sure to come back; we still want your traffic.

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.

This blog keeps getting better. Thanks for keeping it updated!

I have read your own article. It’s seriously helpful. We can easily benefit lots from the application. Fluent producing style and vivid text make people readers benefit from reading. I will share the opinions together with my acquaintances.
