Tablet Magazine Celebrates One Year

These are a few of our favorite things, part 1

Print Email

Tuesday marks Tablet Magazine’s one-year anniversary, and in the run-up, we’re remembering our ten favorite articles from the past 12 months. Herewith, your second of four installments. In no particular order …

“City of Refuge” by Ze’ev Avrahami, April 22, 2010. Avrahami remembers his old town of Yamit, a ’70s-era Israeli settlement in the Sinai, which was handed back to Egypt following the 1979 peace deal.

“The Crime of Surviving” by Dovid Katz, May 3, 2010.. Katz sheds light on the bizarre and troubling “Holocaust obfuscation” of Lithuania and the other Baltic states, which equates Jewish suffering under the Nazis with Lithuanian suffering under the Soviets.

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.

S. Malkah Cohen says:

I loved “The Frozen Rabbi” series, as well as the Yamit piece.

I will have to think about it [I have enjoyed so many]. But what occurs to me immediately is that you are one terrific little webzine which I recommend without hesitation to all I know who are interested in Jewishness, however defined, and Jewish literacy, at its highest level. Happy Birthday–many more.
