• “Ed Koch is the only living person with a New York City bridge named after him.” And he is himself a New York City landmark. [Forward]

• Particularly as we talk about evacuations of outposts, it’s useful and necessary to remember that—and within, shall we say, a far different context—Palestinians lose their homes too, all the time. [NPR]

• Woody Allen won’t make a movie in Israel and indeed has never visited Israel, basically because he’s a close-minded neurotic, which we already knew. [Forward Thinking]

• Richard Brody comments on the film stars—including Greta Garbo from Ninotchka!—of whom Anne Frank posted pictures to the wall in the annex. [New Yorker The Front Row]

• Want a kosher Dodger Dog? Tough luck. Seriously they should just come back to Brooklyn. [Jewish Journal]

• You’ll be shocked to learn that Greek’s neo-Nazi Golden Dawn party continues to behave like a thuggish fascist outfit. [NYT]

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.


Your comment may be no longer than 2,000 characters, approximately 400 words. HTML tags are not permitted, nor are more than two URLs per comment. We reserve the right to delete inappropriate comments.
