‘Be the mensch our world needs’

The Sydney Jewish Museum has launched the 'Be a Mensch' campaign that encourages people to practice small acts of kindness on an everyday basis.

Be A Mensch

We have launched our Be A Mensch campaign as a reminder that small acts of kindness and respect can make a better society, one person at a time. This campaign is a call for the lessons of history to inspire humanity and empathy.Now, more than ever, our societies need more 'mensches' – more people working towards making the world a more accepting and welcoming place.Join the movement by tagging a person in your life who is a mensch and inspires you to #BeAMensch.

EIGHT ambassadors have been chosen by the Sydney Jewish Museum to spread the word about empathy and kindness as part of its Be a Mensch campaign, launched last week to coincide with World Human Rights Day.

The ambassadors include Holocaust survivor Olga Horak, NSW Senior Australian of the Year finalist and Holocaust survivor Eddie Jaku, former High Court Justice Michael Kirby and African-Australian Advocacy Centre chairperson Noel Zihabamwe.

The campaign will be conducted inside the museum to visitors and students, and through its online and social media platforms.

Meanwhile, the museum is seeking expressions of interest for its next volunteer guide training course, which will run on Mondays from February 13 to September 14, 2020.

Registrations are due Friday, December 27. For more information, call (02) 9360 7999 or email volunteer@sjm.com.au.
