Editorial Policy:

TC Jewfolk strives to present an open forum for discussion and reflection on any and all issues that we feel will resonate with Twin Cities Jews in their 20s to 40s. TC Jewfolk is a space where a diversity of Jewish views and opinions can be presented, and we encourage dialogue, debate, and discussion on these issues.

We publish Op-Ed pieces that are important to our readers even though the topic might be sensitive or provocative. The opinions expressed in these pieces are those of the individual author(s) or commenter(s); they do not reflect the official policy or position of TC Jewfolk or Jewfolk Media, Inc.

TC Jewfolk does not willfully act as a mouthpiece for any organization or ideology, in the Jewish community or otherwise. We will endeavor to present multiple and diverse viewpoints on sensitive subjects as long as the discourse is respectful. We will occasionally publish content by an employee or representative of an organization, but those will be marked accordingly, and reflect the opinions and policies of said organization and/or the author, not TC Jewfolk.

The TC Jewfolk Editor, in conjunction with the Editorial Board, reserves the right to reject Op-Ed pieces for publication for any reason, including but not limited to ones that: don’t fit typical length requirements, are disrespectful, and/or those that duplicate views that have already been published.

Comment Policy:

TC Jewfolk welcomes and encourages open dialogue, debate, and discussion through comments on our site and our Facebook page. Comments are moderated by the TC Jewfolk editors to ensure that they fall within editorial guidelines. The editors reserve the right to exclude comments that do not follow these guidelines: Comments should be respectful and civil in tone. We will not tolerate personal attacks, racist, homophobic, sexist, or bigoted comments. Comments must be on-topic; if you have a new topic to raise, please contact the editor at [email protected] to pitch it as an article. Spam is not allowed. We reserve the right to delete comments and ban commenters at our sole discretion.

Observance of Shabbat & Holidays

As a Twin Cities community resource serving Jews of all backgrounds and observance levels, TCJewfolk.com does not publish to the site, post or engage in social media on Shabbat or major Jewish holidays.

In the unlikely event of an urgent need to communicate information to our readers on Shabbat or a holiday, TCJewfolk.com may publish on Shabbat or holidays with the approval of the President of Jewfolk Media, Inc.

Occasionally, technical glitches may result in the inadvertent publishing of posts or emails on Shabbat or holidays.
