Tablet is an American Jewish online magazine founded in 2009 by Jewish non-profit Nextbook.[1]

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 Dyke March.[3][4]

In August 2018, reporter Armin Rosen investigated leftist New York State Senate candidate Julia Salazar's Judaism, finding that her family members never practiced Judaism and denied their Jewish ancestry.[5]


Previous and current writers and editors associated with Tablet include Allison Hoffman,[6] Liel Leibovitz, Alana Newhouse (founder), Marc Tracy,[7] Tal Kra-Oz, and Bari Weiss.


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).[8]
