Congratulations to Tablet contributor Bari Weiss on her upcoming move to the New York Times opinion section.

Bari, who edited our news and politics section from 2011 to 2013, moves to the Times from the Wall Street Journal, where she worked as associate book review editor and also wrote frequently about topics like political correctness and campus culture.

Throughout this time, she’s remained a valuable contributor to Tablet. You can read all of her pieces here, but we would especially recommend two of her most recent ones: A post-election consideration of Steve Bannon, and another about the uncomfortable test facing anti-Trump Jews. Bari also regularly appears on NY1’s Book Reader feature, and moderates the Jewish Book Council’s Unpacking the Book: Jewish Writers in Conversation series.

Please join us in wishing her—and the Gray Lady—a mazel tov.

Thank you for reading Tablet.

The Jewish world needs a place like Tablet where varying—even conflicting—viewpoints can exist side by side. Our times demand an engagement with big ideas and not a retreat from them. Help us do what we do.
