If you hadn’t heard, there is a massive and deadly fire currently raging in Israel’s northern forests, not too far from Haifa. Most tragically, 40 prison guards traveling in a bus were killed in the blaze. Numerous kibbutzes have been evacuated, as has the University of Haifa. Officials said they did not expect the fire would be contained by this evening.

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.

Is there a website to help donate to the victims?

I found out about the fires on Yahoo. I probably shouldn’t be shocked, but the comments section afer the story was filled with hateful, ignorant and anti-semitic remarks. Disgusting!
