How to be a Mensch

What is the “consumate human being?”

A Mensch!

WE invite you to go on the journey of “mensch-hood” in this poem Errol wrote (see Excerpt below).  In case you’re not familiar with Yiddish or Hebrew, let me know and we’ll translate, but we think you’ll get the meaning… 


So, what is a Mensch?

A man or woman who walks securely in every living moment,

with full confidence

that every beat of his heart

and each breath of her soul

is a gift to life

and everyone he touches is a gift to himself.

Mazeltov…

Beloved…Mensch!

L’Chaim.

(PS…If you’d like to hear this read with beautiful music played by Itzhak Perlman, let me know and I’ll send you the the mp3 file.)
