Submit

Scroll to the bottom of the page to post your short vort, but first, please read this:

Wow! You’re about to submit your vort and share divrei Torah with the world. Thank you!

Since the website is geared to short vorts, we request that your dvar Torah is really a short vort. How long is a short vort? It’s not so easy to say. 300 words and under is certainly a “short” vort. We feel that ideally a short vort would not be longer than 650 words. We’re not setting a word limit (just yet) but bear in mind that people are on the website specifically look for a short vort to learn or to share with others, and if yours is too long, they might just skip it. Also bear in mind that your “long vort” can always be split up into shorter vorts.

IMPORTANT NOTES: Please read before posting!

Posting a Vort

A few technicalities:

  1. Your short vort does not go on the website until it has been approved. If you feel that a short vort was approved inappropriately please click the contact link to be in touch with us.
  2. If you are submitting a video, please keep it to 2 minutes and place in the article name the word “video” and the place it in its appropriate place – eg. under Parashas Bereishis, not under “video”.
  3. We reserve the right to reject any vort or video that we do not want to post at our discretion. 
  4. Vorts may be removed without warning or consultation with the author.
  5. On occasion, submissions may be slightly edited for style, accuracy or meaning.
  6. Ideally, type your short vort on a separate document before copying and pasting into the submission box just in case something happens to the webpage.
  7. Please proofread your short vort before clicking submit. It will not necessarily be proofread.
