• You first (or earlier) heard it here last Friday, from Les Gelb: Amr Moussa, the president of the Arab League, is someone to watch as Egypt’s future takes shape. [WP]

• Rep. Jane Harman, Democrat from Los Angeles and a strong (and Jewish) supporter of Israel, is resigning and taking her talents to the Smithsonian’s Woodrow Wilson Center. [Politico]

• Appropriately enough, Jerusalem has turned into one of the Stations of the Cross otherwise known as the Republican primaries. [LAT]

• Dan Quayle—remember him?—came out in favor of Jonathan Pollard’s release. [Haaretz]

• Maurice Sendak drew exactly one mural, and it’s now in Philly. [Daddy Types]

• A new exhibit explores the Apollo Theater’s history: A story incomplete without mention of the Schiffman family, which was featured on a Vox Tablet. [NYT]

This was pretty.

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.
