Sundown: Scissor Sister

No blood libel from Moore, Aussie Heebsters, and a High Holi-dog

Print Email

• Following a shortage of certified circumcision practitioners, and in a time of controversy about the procedure, Dr. Karen Jaffe has become the first female mohel, or mohelet, in the state of Ohio. [Cleveland.com]
• Jews down under can now enjoy their own recently launched edition of Heeb magazine, and the “No shrimp on this barbie” t-shirts that will inevitably follow. [JTA]
• The verdict is in: Israelis are gaga for Inglourious Basterds. [Haaretz]
• Check out this cute video of a dog responding to the shofar with his own tekiah gedolah; one commenter suggests that “with a little ingenuity,” the ram’s horn “can be made into marijuana smoking device.” [AV Club]
• No need to fear a Michael Moore exposé on Jewish Christ-killers; the director says the nuns at his Catholic school “wanted to make it clear that the Jews had nothing to do with putting Jesus up on the cross.” [NYT]

COMMENTING CHARGES
Daily rate: $2
Monthly rate: $18
Yearly rate: $180

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 letters@tabletmag.com. 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.
