Community E-Letter

5 p.m. Tuesdays.

Community E-Letter Policy

Community publishes a weekly E-letter that includes information about upcoming events within the Jewish community and those that are of interest to the community. To subscribe, email

Events must be submitted by the sponsoring information in accordance with these guidelines. Send all submissions by 5 p.m. Tuesday to be included in that Wednesday’s email to

  1. Information for events must be submitted in paragraph form. Flyers will not be accepted.
  2. All necessary information must be included in the brief summary. Please double check that all the relevant questions have been answered:
    1. Who?
      • Who’s invited
      • Who’s sponsoring
      • Who’s the featured speaker, performer, etc.
    2. What?
    3. When?
    4. Where?
    5. Why?
    6. How?
    7. How much does it cost?
    8. When do you need reservations?
    9. Contact information for people who need more information.
    10. Not every question will apply to every submission, but if important information is omitted, either the people who are interested won’t get all the information they need or you won’t get the responses and payments you need.
  3. It is common sense that all items in the same document should have the same style. Here are a few pointers on the style we use:
    • Keep the time simple: 2 p.m., 11:30 a.m., etc. Please don’t add a :00 to an hour and please use “a.m.” and “p.m.” lower case with periods.
    • Spell out months and days of the week.
    • Don’t use “&” unless it is the official name of something.
    • Please, don’t use first person. “We invite you to our event” may be fine for your in house newsletter, but this newsletter is from the JCL and “we,” the JCL, are not inviting people to a JCL event. Even in our own events, we try to say “The JCL/JCC/Federation invites you to the XYZ event.” This eliminates confusion and helps people identify your events with you.
    • Keep it short. Put all the details on your web site and just the basics that people need to decide if they’re interested in the E-letter. Then include a link so people who are interested can get the rest of the information.
    • No artwork can be accepted. If people need to access the flyer, it must be posted on the organization’s web site and a link to that page needs to be included in the announcement.
  4. Submission procedures.
    1. Send all E-letter information to (If you’d like it in Around Town in
      Community, too, please copy
    2. Please send E-letter information ONLY for events that occur within the next three weeks.
    3. Once the RSVP date in the article you send has passed, the item will be deleted from the E-letter unless you provide a revised and updated article.
    4. NOTICES OF REGULAR CLASSES AND PROGRAMS will run only ONCE A MONTH, so please send these notices in at only the beginning or end of the month, your choice.
