• Yesterday’s shooting at Los Angeles synagogue Adat Yeshurun left two injured and one bar mitzvah boy and his family in the lurch—Alejandro Sisro’s ceremony was postponed until the evening, and he consoled himself thusly: “I’ll get famous.” [LAT]
• Also yesterday, Iran officially rejected the United Nations plan for the country to ship its uranium abroad for enrichment. [NYT]
• Meantime, the U.S. Senate passes a bill calling for sanctions on Iran, particularly focusing on companies that help Iran “import or produce refined petroleum.” [JTA]
• Lebanon’s ambassador to the United Nations warns that he suspects Israel is set to attack his country, citing as evidence the fact that Israel fired on Lebanon as retaliation for this week’s rocket attack. [Haaretz]
• U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will meet Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in Abu Dhabi on Saturday to keep up the pressure on restarting peace talks with Israel, according to an anonymous official. [Reuters]

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.

75. Good write-up, I’m regular visitor of one’s blog, maintain up the nice operate, and It’s going to be a regular visitor for a lengthy time.

Intercourse shops of yesteryear have tested their reputation of getting dismal and dirty. What with their frosted glass windows hiding a darkish and smelly interior stuffed with a lot of hardcore porn. The sleazy guys likely in had been of a questionable repute. No woman with a shred of self-respect would actually be caught in this sort of an establishment.

One of the stuff I’m thankful for is that I have such a well informed and articulate group of people, with whom I can discuss politics and current things happening.

We still can not quite think that I could always be one of those studying the important ideas found on this blog. My family and I are seriously thankful for the generosity and for providing me the possibility to pursue my chosen career path. Many thanks for the important information I obtained from your site.
