Repeated failure to follow any of these rules may result in a temporary block. Users who continue to indulge in the same behavior that led to the block after it has expired may receive a longer or permanent block.

  • This wiki is about the Jewish religion, Jewish history, Jewish culture and Jewish people. Articles considered to be irrelevant to The Judaism Wiki or beyond its scope will be deleted on sight.
  • This wiki is written in American English. Articles written in languages other than English will be deleted on sight.
  • Articles may be deleted if they are considered to be uninformative due to being very short or if they are badly written to the point of being incomprehensible. Articles on topics about which there is simply not much to say or about which little information is available may be deleted or merged into larger existing articles.
  • This wiki is written from a Jewish point of view. Therefore, we do not refer to the "Old Testament" or the "Hebrew Bible". We simply say the "Bible" or the "Tanakh". We do not use BC and AD dates. We use BCE and CE dates. Biblical personages are, however, referred to by their commonly used English names that are also familiar to English-speaking Christians, Muslims and others.
  • All content that you add to The Judaism Wiki should be written in your own words. Do not copy text from Wikipedia, other wikis, other websites or anywhere else.
  • Articles should have more text than images. There should not be more than three copyrighted images on a page. You can, however, add as many public domain or free-to-use images as you like. All of the images, videos and sound files on Wikimedia Commons are also available right here, giving us access to an enormous amount of public domain and free-to-use media.
  • Do not recreate any deleted articles without first discussing the matter with at least one of our administrators and gaining his or her approval.
  • When editing our articles and creating new ones, follow the pattern of our existing articles. Do not try to make any new articles you create look radically different from those that are already here.
  • Do not edit war. If you have a disagreement with another user, discuss it on the relevant article's talk page. Edit warring may lead to one or both editors involved being blocked.
  • Follow the advice of administrators and other more experienced editors. This includes advice directly given to you on your talk page and article talk pages as well as advice in edit summaries and reasons for deletion. If an administrator tells you to stop doing something, stop doing it.
  • Antisemitism will not be tolerated. Users who express anti-Semitic views may be immediately and permanently blocked. Users whose user names and/or avatars refer to antisemitism will be blocked on site.
  • Do not attempt to convert our editors and/or readers to any religions other than Judaism.
  • Even if you disagree with other users, do not insult them. Do not insult other users based on their religion, ethnicity, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, ability or age. Use of slurs of any kind will not be tolerated and may lead to an immediate and permanent block. Harassment of other users will not be tolerated.
  • Vandalism will not be tolerated and will invariably result in a block. The block may be temporary or permanent depending on the extent and severity of the vandalism and the user's prior conduct.
  • Users who are known to have threatened cross-wiki vandalism elsewhere may be pre-emptively blocked here.
  • Spam will not be tolerated and will invariably result in a block for the spammer.
  • Users with any user names and/or avatars that are obscene or offensive will be blocked on sight.
