_The Mitzvah_ by Aaron Zelman and L. Neil Smith is powerful stuff. This attention-grabbing novel tells the story of a Catholic priest forced to confront evidence that his birth parents were German Jews who hid their infant son with neighbors before being murdered in the Holocaust.
As a non-Jew, I was fascinated by the priest's efforts to investigate his birthright and understand the fundamentals of the Jewish faith. His intellectual and spiritual journey became my own.
What the priest discovers will alarm most readers. The Mitzvah clearly shows that in America, not only are many Jewish leaders and legislators ignoring the Bill of Rights, they are also ignoring the teachings of Judaism.
Like a clear diagnosis of cancer, _The Mitzvah_ is upsetting but must not be ignored. -- John Ross, Author of Unintended Consequences
About the Author
AARON ZELMAN learned about freedom and self-reliance growing up in the Arizona desert. A Vietnam veteran (he was a Navy Corpsman assigned to Fleet Marine Force, Third Marine Airwing) he's also the co-author of _The Life Insurance Conspiracy_, _The Consumer's Guide to Handguns_, _"Gun Control"; Gateway to Tyranny-, and _Lethal Laws_. Aaron is the creator of the educational series of "Gran'pa Jack" freedom booklets, and publisher of the _Firearms Sentinel_. He's perhaps best known as the founder and Executive Director of Jews for the Preservation for Firearms Ownership, regarded by many as America's most aggressive civil rights organization. _The Mitzvah_ is Aaron's first effort at fiction. He lives with his wife and children in the Kettle Moraine region of Wisconsin to which he says they've successfully escaped from "Naziwaukee".
Former gunsmith, ballistician, reserve police officer, and likely the most widely-published and prolific libertarian writer in the world, L. NEIL SMITH produces fiction which is often compared to the works of Robert A. Heinlein and H. Beam Piper. Author of countless essays and articles, as well, he's been called "the most frequently crossposted writer on the internet". Neil has also performed as a professional musician, playing banjo and guitar. An enthusiastic competitor in the long-range sport of handgun metallic silhouette shooting, he lives in Fort Collins, Colorado with his wife Cathy, his daughter Rylla, and two striped orange cats named Amber and Ambrose. _The Mitzvah_ is his twentieth novel.

While the book is not on par with Unintended Consequences, it is a book I'll pass on and recommend to my liberal Jewish and non-Jewish friends.
I strongly urge all of you to go to Zelman's site jpfo.org and browse around. While you're there, check out L. Neil Smith's collection of essays on the Second Amendment, especially his response to an LEO.
I plan on giving my copy of the book to a Jewish friend of mine but I must emphasize that this book is for anyone of any (or no) religion.
I am doing something else: I have written into the book jacket that this copy belongs to no one person. All I ask is that the recipient read it, make a little tick mark on the book to show another person has read it, and then to pass it on to a friend. I stongely urge that you read this book and pass it on. This profound message can reach people but only one person at a time.
I like so many other jew's have lost our faith, and become weak victim-minded folks..
I hate it, this book I hope to awaken my strength and faith...
I love this book, and it is kind of haunting...
I am not a gun owner, but I wish I was. Because I do believe in the rights of the individual to control and protect their own lives...
Thank you both very much for a very inspiring and powerful book...
