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’.
Mensch is a registered public benefit, non-profit organisation. The founding Executive Director and Board Members represent a committed group of professionals and lay leadership social change makers. May we introduce you to them:
THE MENSCH NETWORK
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.
Watch this space for workshops, speaking events, volunteering opportunities and more! We’ll keep you in the loop with Mensch activities, Mensch Network members activities and whats happening in civil, social and political spaces in your area.
