The other day I used the word “mensch” on my Facebook page as I was describing someone that I know. This prompted some comments about what the words meant, which ultimately caused another friend to send this video my way.
I found the whole thing uplifting and joyful – and a great reminder of how we can all be better, even by using qualities that might not seem like the best ones. We can all be mensches in one way or another, and we can make each other be better mensches if we try. So no big statement today, just sit back, watch, think, and go out there and make a mensch of yourself and others. The world is in need, so mensch making should be on the rise. Go and do your part!
