‘Goldblog’ Moving to Tablet
Contributing editor Jeffrey Goldberg to begin blogging here
I’m thrilled to announce that Jeffrey Goldberg will soon be moving “Goldblog,” his blog at TheAtlantic.com, to Tablet Magazine. Jeffrey, a national correspondent at The Atlantic and a Bloomberg View columnist, offers an authoritative perspective on Israel, Iran, Jewish communal life, and other topics that make him a natural fit for Tablet. Plus, as a contributing editor, he’s already done some of his most serious journalism and cultural analysis for us.
Along with our daily reporting on news and culture as well as The Scroll, Marc Tracy’s
National Magazine Award-winning blog—which will continue to provide up-to-the-minute analysis of the Jewish world’s political, cultural, and seemingly endless athletic news—Goldblog will provide our readers with even more rigorous, insightful journalism about the Jewish world and beyond.
“Not since the glory days of Seth Lipsky’s Forward have I read a Jewish publication as entertaining, stimulating, sophisticated and complicated,” said Goldberg, who will remain a national correspondent at The Atlantic. “I want to be part of that conversation in Tablet.”
Plus the new head of the Israeli opposition, and more in the news

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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
