Conversos in Medellín, Moishe Oysher!, and more

Print Email

Today in Tablet Magazine, deputy news editor Matthew Fishbane heads to Medellín, Colombia, where Jews dating back to the Inquisition try to eke out lives amid that country’s instability. Staff writer Marissa Brostoff pinpoints the trend boomlet of the summer: A revival of Lower East Side cantor and Yiddish theater star Moishe Oysher (“yes, that is said to be his given name”). The Scroll will be saying “Moishe Oysher” aloud all day long.

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.

Hello there, just became aware of your blog through Google, and found that it is really informative. I�m gonna watch out for brussels. I will appreciate if you continue this in future. A lot of people will be benefited from your writing. Cheers!

The indispensable first step to getting the things you want out of life is this: decide what you want. – Ben Stein

I see like I’m constantly looking in place of inviting things to read close by a multifariousness of topics, but I succeed to include your site among my reads every prime because you give birth to compelling entries that I look forth to.
