• Chief Israeli Ashkenazi Rabbi Yona Metzger, who recently appeared in Germany to discuss compromise on circumcision regulations, is speaking out against talks of a ban on Jewish ritual slaughter in the Netherlands, which he says will force Dutch Jews to leave. [JTA]

• Michigan police are cryptically skeptical of the charge that the attack on Michigan State student Zach Tennen over the weekend was not a hate crime, but are failing to divulge more reasons why. [Times of Israel]

• The Israel State Archives has released a series of documents detailing the Israeli government’s decision-making and debate during the 1972 Munich massacre. [Haaretz]

• Jeremy Bernstein has a fantastic essay about playing chess against the filmmaker Stanley Kubrick, who accused Bernstein of being a “patzer” after losing the first few games. [NYRB]

• The New York Daily News is the latest rag to line up and take a shot at Sheldon Adelson, who funds the free Israeli daily Israel HaYom that is squeezing the newspaper business in Israel. [NYDN]

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.

Jews think by hushing up a hate crime attack against a Jew then it didn’t happen and we can all go about our lives It doesn’t work that way. Jews for all their money and supposed influence are GUESTS in this country and act like GUESTS. They’ve died for blacks; even founded the NAACP and Black colleges and who hates them as much as the white haters? The blacks! From Louie Farrakan and Jew killer Al Sharpton. Jews tried to pay off Farrakan with Mike Wallace and Edgar Bronfman wanting to buy him a hotel in Harlem. He didn’t want it because he took a page from the Nazis and plans to go after all the Jews’ money; just like the Nazis. The Jews better learn how to fight before it is too late. Call it a hate crime and have the Jews track down the attackers and punish them forcefully. These haters only fear force.
