Writer’s Guidelines

We appreciate your interest in our publication.

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. Please e-mail submissions to ja@ou.org. Mailed or faxed submissions are also acceptable. The author’s name, address, and daytime telephone number should be included with the article. If mailed, submissions should be addressed to the attention of Necham Carmel and sent to Jewish Action 11 Broadway New York, NY 10004. A self addressed, stamped envelope is appreciated.

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