• More Republican Jewish donors are coming over to Team Romney. [Forward]

• The authorities in Tehran put the kibosh on a celebration for the Oscar-winning A Separation and its director. [NYT ArtsBeat]

• The Lincoln Center of Brighton Beach. Because of course. [NYT]

• Ami Eden suggests—apropos M.J. Rosenberg forsaking “Israel-firster” forevermore—that “anti-Israel” is the right-wing equivalent. Do you agree? I’m pretty sure I don’t. [JTA Capital J]

• Louis Farrakhan is apparently still up to his old tricks. [KTVU]

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.

Shoshana Dubman says:

this is in poor taste and should be dismantled…let’s have wax figures of the 6million plus who perished…aren’t they all worthy of being put into wax…oh I forgot the Germans made soap and lamp shades out of them.
