J Street Establishes Local Chapters

Dovish political org. comes to a city near you

Print Email

They say all politics is local, and J Street, the “pro-Israel, pro-peace” organization, seems to agree. The group is opening dozens of headquarters grassroots advocacy groups around the country, centered around certain intra-state regions (i.e., southern Florida) or metropolitan areas (i.e., Chicago), in order to get its message across through more than just the national political and media structure,. To that end, chapters are designed to cover specific congressional districts. Also to that end, they tend to be concentrated in more Jewish areas: New York has five chapters, for example, and New Jersey three. Meanwhile, Montana, as yet, has no J Street Local affiliates. Get on that, guys: there are Jews in Montana, too!

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.

Thanks a million and please continue the rewarding work. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but other than that, this is magnificent blog.
