ABOUT

ABOUT MENSCH

Mensch aims to mobilise positive social activism, based on Jewish values, by creating and supporting a community of change-makers in South Africa. We work to achieve this aim in three ways:
Mensch is a Yiddish word – the language spoken by Jews in eastern Europe before WWII – used to describe a ‘good person’. A person with a sense of right or wrong. Any person, regardless of age, gender or heritage, who stands for justice and strives to help people could be described as ‘a Mensch’.

THE MENSCH NETWORK

The network aims to support, showcase and create networking opportunities for Jewish individuals that are working toward systemic and sustainable transformation in South Africa.
The Network is made up of Jewish individuals committing their working and volunteer hours to improving the lives of those outside of the Jewish community. Our members connect us to an exponential number of people, organisations and communities working towards this aim.
