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!

Thoughts on gun control.

A good friend of mine sent me this picture. Having just finished a Starbucks, my thoughts wondered a bit. Which is a bit ironic as she lives more than 100 miles foam (LOL, a Freudian slip using foam rather than from) the closest Starbuck.

Yeah, it can't happen here. I wonder how to say that in German, unfortunately my Uncles and Aunts who thought (in German) that it could happen here, aren't around to teach me German. Or Polish. Or French.

Becoming accurate with pistols and rifles serve me a few purposes. In no particular order: Satisfaction of excelling in something. When I first started shooting a rifle about 2 years ago, my target at 25 yrd was about 4 times larger than I now use at 500 yards. I took a few lessons from a better shooter, watched a lot of better shooters and practiced a lot. I may be on a first name basis with the nice folks at where I usually by my rounds in bulk. Freedom from fear. I am not afraid of things that go bump in the night nor walking my dog at 0300. Prepping. If things go badly in Israel, I can and will, take an El Al flight over. I can minimally help with security in a kibbutz or settlement, freeing up IDF personnel, and if things happen here, I will not need to raise both hands. Ever.

If you're new to guns and are interested in some free advice, feel free to email. Learning how to safely and accurately fire pistols and rifles is important and you might find, as I did, that it is tremendously fun. Back in the late '80's, I was anti-gun (blushing at the thought) because the only guns I ever saw were either in a policeman's holster, or once pointed at my head by an addict. I remained anti-gun until the first time I was virtually dragged to a shooting range. Again showing my age: "Try it, you'll like it!"


Preppers TV said...

My name is Brian and I work for a television production company based in NYC. I am currently casting for a new series airing for a National Cable Network and I was hoping I would be able to talk to you about participating.

I am looking for "Preppers." People who make a conscious effort to prepare for anything and everything the world might throw their way. How are they preparing themselves, and for what?

Our pilot aired a few weeks ago and did very well so we are now currently casting for this season. At your earliest convenience, I would very much appreciate the opportunity to tell you more about the show and discuss our Casting Call Sheet and what we are hoping to accomplish. I was also hoping you might be able to provide some insight, leads or any information you feel would be helpful to me.

You can email me at
