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!

Josh,

When you embed a video from Youtube in your blog, make sure you choose the proper pixel dimensions to avoid the videos overlapping the right column. Or choose another Blogger template/layout to accommodate the current video size.

I did not know that the Mormons (LDS)had "canneries" of bulk foods for their church members and others outside their religion. I do know many of them are into the self sufficiency prep.

I am not a "prepper" to the degree (preparing for the time span) you are.

We do have a month or two of food (mainly dry goods)in our house if there is a disaster or event that would cause a "temporary" breakdown in the supply chain (months not years.) We know how to and do use mason jars when we do a "pick your own" trip at local PA farms or from our backyard garden.

I also use the plastic lge "ou" parve pretzel containers for bulk foods when the mason jars we have are to small. The food is air tight and protected from insects and rodents and stays good for months (I know you are looking at storage for years) They are great.
