Do You Hear the Hebrews Sing?
Les Miz goes Hanukkah tomorrow night
If you’re planning on being around the downtown area, then buy your tickets (at a $5 discount from the door-price—what a bargain!) for Eight Days More, a very Les Misérables Hanukkah musical at 92Y Tribeca brought to you by the same folks as Everything’s Coming Up Moses (a very Gypsy Passover musical). Written by contributing editor Rachel Shukert and produced by executive editor Jesse Oxfeld, it’s the stirring musical story of the courageous Judah Maccabee (Seth Rudetsky), relentlessly hunted by the Hellenized High Priest, Jason (Matt Leisy). You probably get the idea. We anticipate a fun time had by all on the barricades.

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.
