First thing’s first: we’re not a shul newsletter. We’re not just interested in the Jewish world. We’re also interested in what it means to be a Jew in the world. Talk to us about Corbyn or climate change, Netanyahu or Narendra Modi. You don’t need any journalism experience: we want good ideas, not good CVs.

We’re looking mainly for opinion pieces. That said, we’re open-minded. If you’ve got a video essay, quiz or off-the-wall idea you think might work for VASHTI—try us.

We want to hear from you, whoever you are, but particularly if you’re:

✡️ a woman
✡️ gender non-conforming
✡️ working-class
✡️ Mizrachi & Sephardi
✡️ Charedi

You don’t need to be Jewish to contribute to VASHTI.

Email us at with the subject line ‘PITCH: [PITCH TITLE]’. In your email, include max 250 words about your idea and a few more about yourself. If you want to be anonymous, let us know.

If we’re interested, we’ll give you a word count and deadline, and help develop your article.
