Tablet is an American Jewish online magazine founded in 2009 by Jewish non-profit Nextbook.[1] It is generally regarded as an influential address for high-level reporting and arguments regularly cited by the New York Times, the Washington Post, Associated Press, The New Yorker, and others, and has a stable of Pulitzer-Prize-winning writers and editors as well as two National Magazine Awards.[citation needed]

Tablet magazine runs several new pieces each day, in addition to hourly updates on its blog, The Scroll.[citation needed]

Notable stories[edit]

In 2012, questions by Michael C. Moynihan, writing for Tablet, led to Jonah Lehrer's resignation from The New Yorker: Lehrer had invented and cobbled together quotes attributed to Bob Dylan for his biography of the singer, Imagine: How Creativity Works.[2]

In 2017, Tablet hired Gretchen Rachel Hammond, a Chicago journalist fired from her job at Windy City Times after breaking the news of Jewish activists being expelled from the Chicago DykeMarch.[3]

In addition to news and public affairs, Tablet also occasionally publishes big lists of cultural touchstones: 101 Great Jewish Books;[4] The 100 Best Jewish Songs; The 100 Greatest Jewish Films;[5] 100 most Jewish Foods.[6] They're unlike similar lists, in that all the entries are richly written and sharply argued—and the lists in their entirety tend to be both deeply rooted in tradition ideas while also bucking convention and predictability (e.g., "E.T." as the most Jewish film ever; "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" snagging the #1 spot on the Songs list.)


Previous and current writers and editors associated with Tablet include Allison Hoffman,[7] Liel Leibovitz,[8][better source needed] Alana Newhouse (founder),[9][better source needed] Marc Tracy,[10] and Bari Weiss.[11][better source needed]


Tablet has been nominated for five National Magazine Awards, winning first in 2011 for podcasting and again in 2012 for blogging (both categories have since been discontinued).[12]
