“Aren’t they beautiful?” one person tells Elizabeth Rubin in her report on fanatical Jewish adolescent girls living in West Bank settlements today in Tablet Magazine. “Pure faith mixed with youth. It’s the most erotic thing.” As they mourn the loss of their former home of Gush Katif, in Gaza, as well as their friends and teachers that made up the murdered members of the Fogel family, you will see more facts on the ground. And you will see them, too, in this jaw-dropping slideshow of accompanying photos by Gillian Laub.

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.

A Chicagoan says:

This article was pretty devastating. The slideshow is stunning.

Robert says:

What is that in her hand, a cigarette? She smokes and it harms her body as well as spread bad influence to young girls like her to take up the deadly habit of smoking cigarette. What happened to holiness for a body G-d dwells in?
