Tell Your Life In Six Words

The Jewish Internet in the flesh

Print Email

Tablet Magazine is co-sponsoring “Six Words on the Jewish Life,” an event at 92Y Tribeca on Wednesday, September 21. Various performers, including Walter Mosley, Deborah Copaken Kogan, and Zev Borow, will recite their six-word memoirs—which, really, is exactly what it sounds like—and then have six minutes to fill in the backstory. Also, one of the performers could be you!

Here’s what happens next: write your own six-word memoir. Post it to the event’s Facebook page, identifying yourself as a Tablet reader. Editor in chief Alana Newhouse will pick the winner, and he or she will get to perform later this month.

Sound good? Off with you!

Oh, and tickets here.

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.

I think one of your commercials triggered my internet browser to resize, you may well want to put that on your blacklist.
