Tablet Is At the World’s Biggest Bar Mitzvah
Live from the 2012 AIPAC Policy Conference
Hope you’ll join us on this Sunday for a day of speeches (starting with Presidents Peres and Obama) and panels. We are in the massive main room of the Washington Convention Center, just north of Chinatown, for the 2012 AIPAC Policy Conference. This is my first conference, and I’m actually very excited to be here (though I wish all were welcome).
Need some background? All AIPAC 2012-relevant reading, from reports from the conference to recent articles we’ve published that have a bearing on the issues at hand, can be found here.
Currently: a round-table with Liz Cheney, Ehud Yaari, and Jane Harman, moderated by David Horovitz of the Times of Israel.
At least four journalists requested, did not get credentials
Daily rate: $2

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.
Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
