The real Jewish Alps, tips for Tablet, and a Nazi Jesus

Print Email

It’s Day Two for Tablet Magazine, and there’s plenty for you to read. The blog you’re reading, The Scroll, will be updated throughout the day with opinionated links to coverage we’re interested in elsewhere, like in our latest “Daybreak” morning-news roundup. New content today includes Liel Leibovitz’s look at the largely unknown history of Jews in the Alps (the real Alps, that is—not the “Jewish Alps,” also known as the Catskills). Leibovitz also provides a video interview with ethnic-newspaper editors, providing tips and advice to the Tablet team. And Paula Fredriksen reviews Susannah Heschel’s Aryan Jesus, which traces the history of the Institute for the Study and Eradication of Jewish Influence on German Church Life, a Nazi-era German think tank devoted to portraying a more Aryan Christianity.

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.

Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at 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.

I own read your current article. It’s really helpful. We can certainly benefit considerably from them. Fluent creating style in addition to vivid terms make usa readers like reading. I can share a person’s opinions through my close friends.

When I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new surveys are added- checkbox and today whenever a comment is added I purchase four emails using the same comment. Will there be any way you may remove me from that service? Thanks!
