The AIPAC policy conference might be over, but the party is just getting started: Page Six, the New York Post gossip institution, published some choice lines from Curb Your Enthusiasm actor Richard Kind’s emcee gig at the conference’s gala event. Better add the 2014 conference to your social calendar, stat.

As host, Kind cracked, “Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. We are gathered here tonight to select a new pope” in front of politicos including Joe Biden and Ehud Barak. “It’s a great night for Israel. It’s a great night for Israel-American relations. It’s a terrible night for Chinese restaurants,” was another hit line.

They forgot to mention the part where Kind tried to get someone in the well-heeled audience of 13,000 to hire his son, but that’s what we’re here for.

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.
