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.

to “miss each other”?, more running interference for your Liberal messiah, Obama rejected a meeting, he hates netanyahu, he was even caught on a mic insulting him with Sarkozy, he will not stop Iran from getting nukes as more than likely he agrees with their viewpoint that Israel is a troublesome distraction from achieving Middle Eastern nirvana. All of his closest associates for years were vicious anti-semites and extremely hostile to Israel, Rashid Khalidi was one of his best pals, rev Wright hated jews and often spoke in glowing terms about Hamas, i know the liberal Jewish intellegentsia here on Tablet and mingling on the upper west side would help shove as many Jews into the showers as they could as long as they could stay in Obama’s left wing camp, but hopefully some of your readership will see through your nonsense and vote Obama out in nov

    Thanks as always for your rational input.

      your welcome, eagerly awaiting your next unique take on events in Obama land, how does it feel knowing that the left wing ideology that you have prescribed to all your life is turning on the Jewish people?, must be a bit uncomfortable in choosing what to do next. Obama’s ideology and Israel hatred didn’t arise in a vacuum, it was nurtured in the left wing environment of Hyde Park,

    “…he hates netanyahu”
    golem, can you blame him? What’s there to love about bibi?
