AJW SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

 

B’NAI MITZVA

• Include date and synagogue of Bar/Bat Mitzva in the announcement (dates are not printed, but announcements will be run in the paper on the weekend of the event).

• Include geographical locations of relatives if they are living; deceased relatives must be preceded by “the late.”

• Quality photos can be submitted in any size, black and white or color (if you want photo returned, include a self-addressed stamped envelope).

• Digital photos can be attached to an e-mail as either a .jpg or a .tif file with a resolution of at least 200 ppi.

• There is a $10 fee for submitting a Bar/Bat Mitzva announcement with a photo for active AJW subscribers; for non-subscribers, the fee is $30 that includes a one-year subscription to the paper. If there is no photo included, there is no charge (although most Bar/Bat Mitzva announcements are printed with photos).

• Example: Alena Ann Simon, daughter of Kent Simon and Karen Gjerstad and sister of Jane, will be called to the Torah as a Bat Mitzva Saturday at Mount Zion Temple. She will also participate in Friday evening services. Alena is the granddaughter of Mary Gjerstad and Eugene Gjerstad, Bloomington, and Anita Simon, New York, N.Y., and the late Michael Simon.
