Following our last PonderPicks post which highlighted a few Christian Resources to Protect Liberty, this article focuses on three Jewish organizations dedicated to the preservation of liberty in the United States. These organizations offer a wealth of information, thought-provoking articles, scholarly essays, and even videos that can be used to expand closed minds to see the light and join the fight to protect our American liberty.
The Jewish Policy Center (JPC) is a non-profit think tank offering “scholarly perspectives on foreign and domestic policies that impact the Jewish community in the United States, and the broader American public.” On the domestic policy front, the JPC endorses “smaller government, lower taxes, free trade, and other issues.” The JPC provides a variety of published materials, forums, speakers, and media materials designed to support this vision.
One such JPC publication is the inFocus Quarterly journal which presents a variety of scholarly essays — a specific policy theme is focuses on each quarter. According to the JPC, these essays are written by “some of the top experts and academics around the world.” In addition, the JPC publishes their inSight blog with provides perspective related to contemporary events and news. The JPC also sponsors a variety of speeches, forums, and seminars in Jewish communities across the country. These events focus on current events and vital policy issues.
Another online resource is Jewish World Review (JWR) which is a free online magazine published five days a week. JWR is provided “to people of faith and those interested in learning more about contemporary Judaism from Jews who take their religion seriously.” In addition to offering a variety of information about Judaism, JWR also publishes many thought-provoking columns, editorials, cartoons, and other insights about government, current events, politics, and liberty.
Billing themselves as “America’s Most Aggressive Defender of Firearms Ownership,” Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership (JPFO) is a strong supporter of the Second Amendment. JPFO is not a lobbying organization but is instead a non-profit educational and civil rights organization. As such, JPFO offers a huge array of books, comic-style booklets, videos and films, and other well-documented materials to show how our Bill of Rights are being trampled in the name of gun control and other anti-liberty measures.
Based in Wisconsin, JPFO is dedicated to destroying the concept of gun control and encouraging all Americans to understand and defend the Bill of Rights. JPFO materials point out the racist roots of gun control in America and how a disarmed populace is vulnerable to abuse by government. JPFO explains their goals:
Founded by Jews and initially aimed at educating the Jewish community about the historical evils that Jews have suffered when they have been disarmed, JPFO has always welcomed persons of all religious beliefs who share a common goal of opposing and reversing victim disarmament policies while advancing liberty for all.
