A heist tale, what’s in Cordoba’s name, and more

Print Email

Today in Tablet Magazine, Jon Kalish reports, on our Vox Tablet podcast, on Skipp Porteous, a former neo-Nazi hunter and converted Jew who has in years since tried to solve the only unsolved airplane hijacking. Staff writer Marc Tracy examines why the Cordoba Initiative is called that, and how different Jewish historians have used versions of medieval Spain to advance their own agendas. Parenting columnist Marjorie Ingall praises a new children’s book that kills two birds with one stone: It uses (and teaches) science to reassure short kids that all will be well. Josh Lambert has his weekly round-up of forthcoming books of note, starting with contributing editor Gal Beckerman’s look at the fight to rescue Soviet Jewry. The Scroll will try to get you through another of these August weeks.

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.
