In Our Words

A Mensch is many things and one simple thing.  A mensch does what is right because it is right; towards family,  towards strangers, at home and in public.  When people behave with honesty, integrity, consideration and respect, they themselves prosper as does society at large. By spreading mensch- like behavior we can make our society happier, healthier and more successful.
