Tablet is an American Jewish online magazine created in 2009 by renaming Nextbook, the online magazine (launched in 2003) of the non-profit organization Nextbook.[1]

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 book, 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]


Previous and current writers and editors associated with Tablet include Allison Hoffman,[5] Liel Leibovitz, Alana Newhouse (founder), Marc Tracy,[6] Tal Kra-Oz, and Bari Weiss.[7] Russian-American journalist Vladislav Davidzon is Tablet's European Culture Critic.


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]
