Slide 8: Tablet

Tablet, the newest site, is an online magazine with ties to earlier sites. The creator, Alana Newhouse, formerly served as the culture editor of the Jewish Daily Forward. And the site, whose writers also pop up on many of the other sites, seems to embody not only the diversity of the Jewish experience, but political spectrum as well, with opinions from both the left and right. But not all is serious. Recent pieces include Liel Leibovitz’s “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes: Why Jewish producers kept Jewish women off stage and screen” and a podcast with David Lehman, author of A Fine Romance, about the American songbook.
