Today on Tablet

Going to Goa, considering kiruv, and more

Print Email

Today in Tablet Magazine, Matthew Schwarzfeld files his first of three dispatches from Goa, on the southwest Indian coast, where the more hippie graduates of the Israeli military like to go and chill out. Books critic Adam Kirsch take the measure of Chief British Rabbi Jonathan Sacks’s new manifesto for a more modern, engaged Judaism. Samantha M. Shapiro interviews Miriam Lowenbraun, a prominent figure in the Orthodox kiruv movement, which seeks to persuade Jews to be more observant. And The Scroll could use some time on the Goan beach right about now.

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.

Thank you a bunch for sharing this with all of us you really know what you are talking about! Bookmarked. Kindly also discuss with my web site =). We may have a hyperlink change arrangement between us!
