Hatch: Jewish Senators Liked Song

We’re just glad to have them as Tablet Magazine readers

Print Email

Jeffrey Goldberg, who originally persuaded Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) to write a Hanukkah song for Tablet Magazine, reports that (according to Hatch himself) Sens. Frank Lautenberg (D-New Jersey), Russ Feingold (D-Wisconsin), and Joe Lieberman (I-Connecticut) all the loved the song. Frankly, though, Jewish senators’ reactions are not that surprising. What would be intriguing to know is how the senior chamber’s other Mormons feel about it, and whether they agree with their colleague from Utah, that: “Anything I can do for the Jewish people, I will do.” Sens. Robert Bennett (R-Utah), Michael Crapo (R-Idaho), Harry Reid (D-Nevada), and Gordon Smith (R-Oregon): please get in touch. There are things in the world besides health-care reform, you know.

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.

73. I really appreciate this post. I have been looking everywhere for this! Thank goodness I found it on Bing. You’ve made my day! Thanks again
