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.

T/Ramat-Gan/Israel says:

I suggest to the Voelkische-Beobachter/New-York-Edition to report about what happens in it backyard and the way Obama is deporating hundreds-of-thousands of Illegals from the USA instead of meddling with Israel’s immigration policy.

shavit says:

T: (1) how is it meddling to link an article? (2) are you kidding? Israel asks for support from the diaspora … do you expect that support to be blind? (3) you recognize that you in fact are meddling by coming on to an American website and attempting to tell the editors what to publish, right? do you see the irony there?

oh and (4) … I’m an Israeli as well (and yes, an american too). You and I should be shaking our heads together that our government is doing something so unapologetically stupid as to ignore the chance at good PR by letting these kids stay. I mean, c’mon! What’s it going to hurt?

and might as well say: (5) Obama is also toying with the idea of amnesty for the millions already here … just saying is all.
