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!

Long Term Food Storage Options - Part 1

Hi Josh. Some good ideas here. I take a different philosophy, based on trying a few years ago to live off my emergency food supply: I was miserable, and resolved to make my "normal" supply more like the emergency one, to get a better understanding of both. Now I live mostly off of my dry goods, which are stored 6 months forward (plan to up this to a year), and rotate to keep things a little fresh. So I know exactly what I'm in for, don't get surprised by e.g. rice moths which I now know how to deal with (freeze before storing, it kills the eggs). The weird thing is, because I'm using non-processed foods--none of the canned goods you talk about--and my food is balanced, I've become much healthier. Without aiming to I've lost 25 lbs in 5 months, and seem to have put off a rendezvous with a heart attack. Also have reduced total food costs to $150/month. If you want more details write me at Thanks for an informative & useful site.
