More ‘The Frozen Rabbi,’ the long end of Baghdad Jewry, and more

Print Email

Today in Tablet Magazine, read part 2 of the first week’s installment of Steve Stern’s serialized novel, The Frozen Rabbi. Memoirist Marina Benjamin remembers visiting Baghdad, where her family lived for countless generations, and mourns the loss of the city’s vibrant Jewish community and culture, slowly disappearing altogether into the sand. Book critic Adam Kirsch considers the Dreyfus Affair in the light of today’s culture wars. Our weekly Emails of Zion—that missive that’s been making the electronic rounds among the People of the MacBook—takes the form of a petition to protest Israel’s destruction of a West Bank settlement home occupied by the widow and children of a war hero. We won’t ever maker you sign anything on The Scroll.

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.

I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your social media optimization website. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your theme? Superb work!
