A.J. Jacobs on Jewish Body Week from Tablet Magazine on Vimeo.

In today’s Jewish Body Week video testimonial, author and Esquire editor A.J. Jacobs talks about his big Jewish beard. Tablet Magazine book critic Adam Kirsch considers Benjamin D. Sommer’s new book, The Bodies of God and the World of Ancient Israel. Vox Tablet host Sara Ivry talks to author Eliza Slavet about her Racial Fever: Freud and the Jewish Question and the great psychoanalyst’s theories on the inheritance of Jewishness. And we’ve got two favorites from the archives: Emory professor Sander L. Gilman’s essay on the ongoing fascination with Jews and intelligence, and a Vox Tablet interview with poet and professor Joy Ladin, who lived most of her life as a man, Jay. Jewish Body Week will continue tomorrow and Friday, and, of course, we’ll have more on The Scroll throughout today.

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.

I only desire to say how incredibly impressed I will be with this speed to your shipments. I am a whole new customer, and have ordered instances Using USPS meant for shipping, I gained my earliest package inside of 4 times, and the majority impressively — I ordered the second time at a Friday and even received the package within the following Thursday! Besides creating a great selection, prices, and assignment suggestions, this offers made me an individual for living!!
