CK from Jewlicious shares scenes of Hanukkah festivities in this photo feature... IsRealli brings us a special Hanukkah recipe in this vlog... Radio Shalom, Canada's only all Jewish radio station, is on the air with a fascinating menu that includes reports from Israel, Jewish culture and music. The station is CJRS 1650 on the AM dial from Montreal, broadcasting in English, French and other languages. At this time of year, with many hours of darkness, AM signals sometimes skip hundreds of miles, and CJRS has been audible in the New York area at times during the day and at night.

“This year, the celebration of Hanukkah coincides with a slow-motion genocide the legions of Zionism are carrying out against nearly 1.5 million helpless human beings in the Gaza Strip,” notes Palestinian blogger Khaled Amayreh.

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
