Tablet is a daily online magazine of Jewish news, ideas, and culture. Launched in June 2009, it’s a project of the not-for-profit Nextbook Inc., which also produces the Jewish Encounters book series, edited by Jonathan Rosen. Our archive holds all the articles and features that originally appeared on the website Nextbook.org.
This site was designed by the peerless team at Pentagram, led by Luke Hayman and Austin Maurer along with Laura McNeill, Shigeto Akiyama, Elyanna Blaser-Gould, and Ryan Smith. It was developed by Sanctuary Computer and is maintained by Big Human.

Tablet’s quarterly print magazine is on hiatus. We hope to have more information for you soon.
Corrections are noted by asterisks at the location of the change. Clarifications appear at the end of the article.
Tablet magazine adheres to the journalistic policy of never deleting posts—even those for which apologies have been tendered or substantial corrections applied. Here is the New York Times description of the standard—even when a post is wrong, “we still do not believe that we should unpublish it and pretend it never existed”—which is doubly important for online-only sites, which don’t have paper or microfilm archives.
