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!

Sukkot Weekend II

The Sukkot weekend is growing its ‘to do list’. I purchased 2 Mosin Nagent rifles and looking forward to familiarizing myself with this ‘oldie but goodie’. I’ve never shot one, always wanted to, a found a set at a great price. Hopefully I’ll be able to zero them in at 300 yards quickly.

Other weapons will be available for all interested to ‘try on’. I’m trying to find the time to buy a box or two of clay pigeons for the shotgunner in all of us.

In addition to a NRA Certified Instructor, there will be hands-on experience for those wishing to learn a bit more about HAM radio and other systems. For those who get into the nitty gritty of things, a sheep or goat will be slaughtered and butchered to provide food during the weekend.

Please visit (or re-visit) the original posting for Sukkot in the archives. Again, there is no cost, kids are welcome, if you are kosher you will need to bring kosher food.

And for the kid in all of us, there are 3 puppies available to play with.
