Why Be a Mensch?

Being a mensch adds years to your life and joy to your days. It is the key to success in health, love, relationships, at work, at home, and in life. Mensches are happy, content, prosperous and well liked. Best of all, being a mensch is contagious! Just watch and see the changes you make in yourself and those around you just by being honest, courteous and considerate.

We at Be A Mensch are dedicated to healing the rifts in Israeli society- one mensch at a time.
