Fell in Love With the (Religious) Girl
The week that was on Tablet Magazine
This week in Tablet Magazine, Moshe Schulman told the story of how he fell in love with a religious girl, Adam Kirsch talked shop with the centenarian critic M.H. Abrams, and Dan Raviv and Yossi Melman reported that there will likely not be any military strikes on Iran’s nuclear facilities before the U.S. Election Day.
There are no settlements, says Israeli committee on settlements. We want compulsory Haredi conscription, say 20,000 Israelis. You’re coming with us, say Israeli border police to journalist Ben Ehrenreich. I’ll get back to you, says Prime Minister Netanyahu on the national service law.
Virtually all Holocaust survivors will now have received reparations.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
