Becoming A Mensch
Mensch is a Yiddish word that has gone beyond its basic definition—a human person—and has become a shining symbol of how simply being human in today’s world has become an act of heroism. To help us on our road to discovering our inner mensch, Rabbi Joshua Hammerman’s new book presents 42 brief essays that mirror the 42 stops that the Israelites made as they wandered in the desert. These stories, full of the joy, sorrow, messiness and redemption of everyday life are designed to lead us out of our own wilderness toward realizing of our own promise as a better person. Rabbi Hammerman is the spiritual leader of Temple Beth El in Stamford, CT and the winner of the 2008 Rockower Award for Excellence in Jewish Journalism and the 2018 Religion New Association Award for Excellence in Commentary.
