Story Guidelines

The Arizona Jewish Post welcomes suggestions for local stories. As a Jewish community newspaper, we focus on Jewish themes or organizations. We also publish photographs from Jewish community events; see below for photo guidelines.

To submit an event for the Southern Arizona Jewish Community calendar, please click here.

To submit information about an upcoming event for a news story, e-mail a press release briefly describing the event (including date, time, location and cost) to Include a phone number where you may be reached. If your event includes a speaker, please include a photograph of him/her. All press releases may be edited.

If you are planning a special event that you believe warrants a feature story, please call or send a brief summary at least six weeks before the event explaining what makes the program newsworthy. We also welcome ideas for feature stories that are not time-sensitive.

You may also e-mail letters to Phyllis Braun or mail them to the address above.  Include your full name, residence address and daytime phone number. Please limit letters to 200 words.

Photo Guidelines

Photos from community events are welcome.  The guidelines below also apply to photos submitted with a news or feature story.

  • Action shots are best. We prefer photos showing people engaged in activities rather than posed photos.  The fewer people, the better. Pictures of 1-4 people are better than big group shots.
  • Photos should be accompanied by a brief paragraph describing the event and a caption listing the first and last names of the people pictured, left to right.
  • Please obtain a written release from the parent of any child under age 18.
  • Give photo credit. Tell us who took the photo, if possible, so we can print a photo credit. However, the AJP does not print photo credits for headshot photos.
  • Digital pictures must be a JPEG image of at least 150 dpi. They may be emailed to
  • We discourage the submission of prints.
