Tablet Magazine will be dark tomorrow. On Thursday and Friday, The Scroll will be publishing on a slightly laid-back schedule.

• Next week, Ari Fleischer will join Republican Jewish Coalition head Matt Brooks on essentially (and ostensibly) a get-out-the-vote campaign in Israel for expatriate Americans. [JTA]

• Performing renovations to the Dome of the Rock, the Waqf has permitted scaffolding on the Rock, which is extremely holy to Jews (and Muslims!). [Ynet]

• A new probe revealed polonium, a poison, on Yasser Arafat’s final belongings. [Al Jazeera]

• BREAKING: Louis Farrakhan is an anti-Semite. [ADL]

• Why intermarried couples in New York City raise a relatively small percentage of Jewish children. [Jewish Journal Rosner’s Domain]

• Jordan Farmar goes to the Atlanta Hawks. And right before the Nets were to start in Brooklyn! [Kaplan’s Korner]

Happy Fourth.

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.
