Announcing DAWN 2010

Tablet is co-sponsoring a Shavuot festival

Print Email

Big news, guys: Tablet Magazine is co-sponsoring DAWN 2010, a cultural arts festival and celebration of Shavuot. It’s going down on the evening of Saturday, May 15, at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco—in beautiful Golden Gate Park, in fact. Featuring Sandra Bernhard, Gary Shteyngart, and more, we’re going to be putting a modern spin on the ancient tradition of studying through the night in honor of Shavuot. There will be some religion, in other words, but also some art, some music, and some dancing. Co-sponsored by Reboot.

And if you won’t be around the Bay Area next month? It just so happens that Tablet Magazine will fly you to Dawn! Sign up for the Tablet email list and be automatically entered to win.

Oh, and bonus: DAWN 2010 will see the world premiere of Where The Wild Things Are director Spike Jonze’s tribute to Maurice Sendak, Maurice at the World’s Fair

Tickets and contest sign-up here.

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.
