Welcome to Tablet 2.0
Our new and improved site
Welcome to Tablet 2.0, the new and vastly expanded site of your favorite magazine about Jewish life and culture.
As we hope you’ll agree, the changes are extensive without being disruptive. We’ve revamped the homes of everyone’s favorite features, like Vox Tablet, and introduced a slew of new ones, including platforms for multimedia (slideshows, videos, and even recipe cards) and—right on time—special index pages for the Jewish holidays, each featuring Tablet’s trademark FAQs, essays, and special reports. The Scroll now scrolls, enabling readers to glean more of it at a glance, and new drop-down menus at the top of the homepage also enable viewers to preview the contents of the each section.
But the changes go beyond the technical: We have a brand new Arts and Culture section, introduced here by Literary Editor David Samuels and Senior Editor Matthew Fishbane. And today we also welcome Bari Weiss, who will be taking over the News and Politics section.
Special thanks to Rob Giampietro, Prem Krishnamurthy, Chris McCaddon and Andrew Le Clair of Project Projects, our original designers to whom we turned yet again for their singularly inspired guidance. Tablet Magazine should live until 120, if only for the chance to keep working with them.

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.
