Nextbook Tablet is an excellent Online resource for Jewish culture and news. The design of the Internet magazine is tops. The clear lay-out makes it easy to navigate the different departments and website levels. The feature articles are interesting and the Tablet's take on subject material is always fresh. The Tablet is a learning platform. Nextbook's live programming allows Jews of all walks of life to find each other in their mutual interest in literature and ideas. Every city should be so lucky as to have a place where Nextbook programming can be enjoyed in real life. As a Nextbook volunteer I experienced first hand how the activities of this organization blur that what keeps people apart, highlighting instead what brings them together; a shared interest in Jewish culture.

A smart, incisive new magazine that has the potential to reach a broad audience of previously unengaged Jews and non-Jews as well. As Jeffrey Goldberg of the Atlantic (and a Tablet contributor himself) said, it's quickly becoming a must-read publication.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Sharing its articles with friends and family, sparking fantastic intellectual and political discussion.

Nextbook produces TabletMag, which is a thoughtful, easy way to learn about Jewish life in the US and abroad. Many different viewpoints are shared, which as a born and bred Massachusett-ian, is always amazing to me. (Why would they think THAT?)

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

reach more people
