eJewish Philanthropy accepts thought provoking op-eds around our core content areas.
Submissions should be sent to:
readersforum [at] ejewishphilanthropy [dot com] in .doc, .odt. or embed in the body of an email. They should be “clean” (no edit marks, notes, etc), formatted for left-right reading (unfortunately our platform does not properly render Hebrew text), titled and include a 1-2 line bio of the author.
We do not accept submissions in PDF format or Google Docs.
When submitting, please advise if the article has been previously published (if so where and when) or if it has also been submitted to another outlet.
If photos are submitted, they should be high res. Photos should be sent as separate, individual files. We do not utilize author’s headshots. Be sure to include all necessary credit, and/or copyright information.
If a photo includes children, including teens, we assume you have all necessary permissions and take full responsibility for our publishing.
Footnotes are strongly discouraged.
We suggest staying under 900 words.
As a reminder, we are neither a consumer publication nor a life-style blog. Our readers are primarily communal professionals, funders and invested lay leaders. Submissions should reflect an understanding of this demographic.
***We do not consider op-eds that are of a political nature or advocate for a specific cause. Nor do we accept submissions that are more appropriate as fundraising or marketing brochures.***
While we can link as appropriate, we will not link to an organization’s donate page or project page on any crowd-funding website.
Please note: We do not edit other than for obvious spelling/grammar errors.
Due to the high volume of submissions, we may take up to 1 week to respond.
