This is Tzvika! Tzvika had an unfortunate accident, but luckily the veterinarians at Ramat Gan Safari, outside Tel Aviv, came up with this way for Tzvika to scurry about, as turtles are wont to do.

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 love turtles, and find this very touching and happy that there are people caring enough to help this turtle to live!

Howdy, i read your weblog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just wondering in the event you get plenty of spam comments? If so how do you avoid it, any plugin or anything it is possible to advise? I get so much lately it is driving me mad so any assistance is extremely a lot appreciated.
