You’ve Met The Scroll, Now Here’s The Roll

Read our blog from our Birthright trip (and also keep reading this blog)

In case you hadn’t heard, on Monday I’m hopping a plane with three dozen of my new best friends, bound for the Holy Land. We are going on a Birthright Israel trip, and we aim to blog it every step of the way, assuming our air cards work (kenna hurra). You will be left in capable hands Scroll-wise. Several different folks will come in to anchor Tablet Magazine’s blog; first up will be Irin Carmon, whom you may already know as our Diasporist columnist.

Additionally, I’d encourage you to bookmark The Roll, which is where all our dispatches will be housed. We’ve put a lot of time into setting this whole trip up, and while what you read there might belong to the subgenre of exhaustedblogging (did I mention we are doing lots of hiking? we are doing lots of hiking), I think it will make for compelling, compulsive reading.

Tablet Is Going to Israel

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.

While you spoiled American brats are enjoying a free all expenses paid vacation we’ll be in Tel Aviv  we’ll waving at you.

Marc won’t like this much. Not enough zealous Zionry here.

Marc doesn’t approve of occupy anything. Get a job right Marc? Well I didn’t win a free birthright vacation so sue me.
