About the Blog

Educating fellow Jews about the sporting and defensive use of firearms. Especially Jews in North America, too many of whom are instilled with the belief that guns aren't for nice Jewish boys and girls.

If you know of notable Jewish shooters that should be documented on the blog, even if it is only at the local club level, I am happy to report and profile them. And don't be shy if that person to be documented is you! Please drop me a line at jewishmarksman at gmail dot com. Also follow me on twitter @JMarksmanship.

Bethany Shondark Mandel: Freelance Writer and Jewish Markswoman

Today's Jewish Markswoman is Bethany Shondark Mandel. She is freelance writer/blogger of politically right leanings. In a recent piece she wrote for the New York Post we learn:

As a child, I was saved by the presence of a gun in my home. A man tried to climb in my bedroom window one night. My single mother heard the noise, grabbed her gun and explained (though no explanation was really necessary) that it would be in the man’s best interest to return from whence he came.
I’ve always appreciated my mom’s gun possession ever since. But now, as a mother myself, I understand it, too.

Mandel also participates in a female-oriented gun ownership group on Facebook called Responsible Women Gun Owners: https://www.facebook.com/groups/810239475752825/?fref=nf

Mandel is yet another example of the false narrative that all American Jews are anti-gun. To the contrary, Jews of all walks of American life are at the forefront of promoting and preserving the Second Amendment.
