Celebrate Purim with Tablet
Hanukkah is the best holiday, if you’re a kid. Tu B’Shevat is the best holiday, if you’re a tree-hugger. Yom Kippur is the best holiday, if you’re a masochist.
For everyone else, Purim—when you are basically religiously obligated to party—tops ‘em all. And if you’re looking for a place to observe the holiday with all the rigor your faith demands—oh, and if you live in or near New York City—may we humbly suggest Jdub Records’s Hamanbashin get-down, co-sponsored by Tablet Magazine? It promises to be a night of great music, wacky costumes, and fun times. Under strict religious auspices, of course.
Time: Saturday, February 27th, 9 P.M.-1 A.M.
Place: CSV Cultural Center, down in New York’s Lower East Side.
Tickets: Get ‘em here: $10 advance, $15 at the door.
Hope to see you there!
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 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.
