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 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]

Staffers[edit]

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. Russian-American journalist Vladislav Davidzon is Tablet's European Culture Critic.

Awards[edit]

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).[7]
