Submit Article

Submissions should cover topics of interest to an international Orthodox Jewish audience. Articles related to current ongoing issues of Jewish life and experience, human-interest features, poetry, art, music and book reviews, historical pieces and humor are all acceptable. Because the magazine is a quarterly, we do not generally publish articles dealing with specific timely events.

Articles should be double spaced, typewritten and should average 1000-3000 words, including notes. If used, notes should follow the article as endnotes. E-mail submissions are preferred. They should be sent to ja@ou.org with the subject line “Submission.” Mailed or faxed submissions are also acceptable. The author’s name, address, and phone number should be included with the article. If mailed, a self addressed, stamped envelope is appreciated.

Authors will be informed of a decision within ten-twelve weeks of submission.
