Today on Tablet
Make your own parenting story, goulash in Budapest, and more
Ever wonder what it’s like to be a New York City parent? Today in Tablet Magazine, parenting columnist Marjorie Ingall lets you choose your own adventure (it’s way cool). Reporter Hugh Levinson and Budapest-based ethnomusicologist Bob Cohen eat goulash in a Vox Tablet podcast sure to make you … hungry. Serbian journalist Milena Miletic argues that the International Court of Justice’s forthcoming ruling on Kosovo’s separation from Serbia will set an important precedent regarding the Palestinian question. Josh Lambert provides his weekly preview of forthcoming books of interest. And The Scroll provides its daily rundown of News Jews Can Use.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
