• Amir Mizroch has a smart look at the significance of the post-election pairing between Yesh Atid’s Yair Lapid and the Jewish Home’s Naftali Bennett as together they resist joining Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s coalition in order to extract concessions from Bibi. [Amir Mizroch]

• Amy Sherman-Palladino, a legend in her own right, talks about how Mel Brooks helped her discover her Judaism; there’s a lot of good in there. [NYM]

• BuzzFeed has a slightly amusing, very BuzzFeedy annoying look at keeping kosher. [BuzzFeed]

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.

Why even announce it? Just do it and get it over within 3 or 4 weeks, then stop. There is no need for any boots on the ground (period)

Well, what date and time? And will it be on HBO?
