I suppose you tried to edit OSM the normal way already, what error(s) did you encounter ?

JOSM (and iD) use standard HTTP requests to access the REST editing APIs, and the imagery. So if access to these is blocked, you should be able to use TOR to access them.

Check the TOR configuration to make sure that api.openstreetmap.org is routed via TOR. You can change the API url and proxy parameters in JOSM's preferences (second tab from the top).

Different sites suggest to set the SOCKS proxy to localhost port 9050. That seems to be working except for the DNS resolution, which is still local (-> Tor DNS leak).

Firefox has a setting "Remote DNS" for this purpose. Unfortunately, that's not available in JOSM though. Maybe this link might be helpful to fix this in JOSM?
