Sundown: Shelly Opens His Pockets Again

Plus Rotem wants Arab judge sacked, Romney at AIPAC, and more

• Sheldon Adelson has given a pro-Newt Gingrich Super PAC another “substantial” amount—and just in time for his losses tonight! [Reuters/JPost]

• A Christian Arab-Israeli Supreme Court judge did not sing along to “Hatikvah.” For this, MK David Rotem—of “Rotem Bill” fame—called for the judge’s removal. [Times of Israel]

• Mitt Romney will address AIPAC. They used to not let non-incumbent presidential contenders speak, but now they do. [JTA]

• Hipsters or Hasids? The answer may surprise you! [Hipsters or Hassids]

• Is Natalie Portman married? The answer may surprise you! [NYO]

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.

No Chris Jackson reference, Marc? Incidentally, I recall reading that Wilt got a ride back to New York in the Knicks van. Somehow, those seem like better days.

Hershel (Heshy) Ginsburg says:

AIPAC “…used to not let non-incumbent presidential contenders speak, but now they do.”

I seem to remember that a candidate by the name of Barak Obama spoke at the 2008 AIPAC Convention. He even got in trouble for what he said about J’lem and a few days later he basically “never minded” what he said.

In their desire to paint AIPAC as sort of a pro-Israel Darth Vadar, MT & the Tabletarians should at least get their facts straight.
