On Tablet Today

Mad magazine, Iran in Argentina, gay pride, and a bachelorette

Print Email

Back at work after a long weekend, you’ll find plenty to read on Tablet Magazine today. In our weekly podcast, Vox Tablet, host Sara Ivry examines the life of comic-book genius and Mad magazine creator Harvey Kurtzman in a conversation with the author of a new biography. Ben Cohen considers Iran’s influence in Latin America on the 15th anniversary of the terrorist bombing of a Jewish center in Argentina. Parenting columnist Marjorie Ingall recounts her two-year-old niece’s march in New York’s gay-pride parade. Associate editor Hadara Graubart finds a lot to like in Road to the Altar, a web-TV series in which Jaleel White—you know him as Urkel—plays a guy preparing to marry a Jewish bridezilla. And books columnist Josh Lambert surveys the latest in Jewish publishing in his weekly “Reading Around” column.

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.
