Jewish Preppers?

Some people finding our website may be wondering what is a Prepper and why does it have a religious affiliation? Well the short answer is...A Prepper is the modern day survivalist. It's not (necessarily) a right-wing militiaman preparing for Armageddon in the boondocks of Montana. But better represented by a normal, educated, middle class individual perhaps living in the most urban of cities, preparing themselves physically and mentally for any upcoming disaster, natural or man-made. This could include anything from earthquakes to volcanic eruptions, social unrest to an act of terrorism. Preparations include: food supply, medical supply, weapons supply etc. and the knowledge and skills to use them. Of course, a Jewish Prepper is just a designation for a small niche of the Prepper Community that is of the Jewish Faith. We are non-profit and nonpartisan. Enjoy!

Happy Birthday to Jewish Preppers

As Jewish Preppers celebrates it's first anniversary (and Chanukka), we would like to thank all of our loyal readers. We've so far published almost 100 postings and have had almost 25,000 hits. Not too shabby. ;-)

We would like to encourage you'all to spread the word and make this coming year even more prepared than the last!

Anyone familiar with the Chanukka story understands that the Hashmonaim were basically Jewish preppers of ole that took a terrible situation into their own hands and managed to survive against all odds.

Happy Chanukka and Semper Paratus!
