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.

I have just recently become acquainted with Tablet published by Nextbook. The articles are well written and entertaining. I will be recommending this e-journal to my friends and relatives.

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 write two newsletters on American Jewish - German relations (DuBow Digest). The one for people in germany deals with happenings in American Jewish life. I find the Tablet a wonderful source of Jewish news.

Fresh feel, edgy perspective and a fun way to catch up on real world, relevant news. I've been waiting for a publication like this for a long time. Love it!

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?)

I read many publications of a Jewish nature and Tablet from NextBook is the most refreshing and culturally-informative publication extant. It's as if George Plimpton, and a bunch of New Yorker writers decided to pay some attention to the Jewish cultural landscape. It's a delight to read each "issue" as well as looking forward to the next NextBook publication.

I do not normally think of anything "Jewish" as being "edgy" or "trendy" (I mean this in a good way), but Tablet Magazine presents the latest news and various rituals of Jewish life in a lively, intelligent, very readable way. The writing is excellent.

The jewish world would be very different without our literature to sustain us. From the TORAH to Philip Roth our writing defines the JEW in world around us. To this end Tablet magazine from Nextbook inc is our connection to and our window upon Jewish literature both past and present. Without telling us what jewish literature is to be read for our own sake, Tablet magazine presents all possibilities and allows us readers to be exposed to a little or when desired a lot. This literature come to us as modern or aged greatly unfiltered

Nextbook, and it's companion website and e-mail newsletter, Tablet Magazine, are one of the very few web experiences I would dearly miss if they were to disappear. The breadth of Jewish topics -- of a cultural and religious and historical nature -- is a perfect reflection of Judaism being a religion, a culture, and a people. The quality, humor, provocativeness, and poignancy of the articles is often moving, while the lessons to be learned about Judaism and Jewish culture -- in the books from Nextbook and the articles on Tablet -- can be significant works of scholarship.

Tablet (Nextbook) has introduced me to new authors, music and ideas. I've bought many books based on their interviews and I have never been disappointed - a great resource!

I love the Tablet! The articles are relevant, interesting, engaging and timely. It's difficult not to click on the email as soon as it arrives in my Inbox. I have personally expanded my library as a result of the diverse and intriguing recommendations. Co-workers and friends have enjoyed articles I've shared with them and signed up as well! Many thanks for a great site and resource.

Nextbook Tablet Magazine presents a wonderful blend of content and design, and I say this as a media professional. The content is engaging, smart and friendly. I used to forward selected articles to my wife and daughter, but it turns out that there is just too much there that I want to share with them, so now I just update them with a link to the entire publication. The design a good and effective model for today's digital media. Pleasing layout, easy navigation, and effective design. Tablet is among my very favorite sites- Jewish or not- to visit.

I read the Nextbook Tablet web site & listen to the podcast. They both keep me in touch with Jewish themes in art, culture & history. I have recommended it to members of my family & have forwarded articles & information of particular interest. Nextbook is a savvy way to connect disparate, far-flung members of the Jewish community. It is updated frequently and is always interesting. I particularly like the focus on books.

I think Nextbook's online magazine is the hippest, most interesting and relevant, as well as well-designed, Jewish publication I ever seen. The range of opinions and viewpoints is particularly appropriate for the diversity of it's community. It seems to be open to publishing and reporting on a super-wide range of topics. It is serious yet fun. Sincere yet ironic. Actually, it is only Jewish publication I read for pleasure. Because of this, I agreed to participate in a design project they had. They were open to whatever we proposed, and clearly from what they published, were open to totally different interpretations of the brief as well. I was shocked to find that I had more response to the little sketch they published than to any other publication in my career - including virtually full page articles in the NY Times.

This is a fabulous online magazine about Jewish life. It's beautifully designed, relevant, and engaging. The site works perfectly. I read articles every day, and I have expanded my Jewish library based on stories seen in Tablet.
