AJC’s Campaign to Encourage Good Deeds

AJC’s #BeAMensch campaign encourages and highlights acts of kindness and decency, which lift us all up and illuminate the darkness of the current period with countless points of light.

Amid the chaos and uncertainty of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis, we are seeing countless individuals, groups, institutions, organizations, companies, and even countries engage in mensch-y behavior: from providing comfort to those in quarantine to reaching out to those most vulnerable and speaking up for groups targeted by hate and xenophobia.

About #BeAMensch

“In the face of the unique adversity of COVID-19, everyday acts of kindness to others becomes particularly vital. Anyone can be a mensch by helping a family member, a neighbor, a stranger, an elderly person, by confronting Coronavirus pandemic despair, or in so many other ways. The important thing is to extend oneself on behalf of others.” —AJC CEO David Harris

The term mensch is Yiddish for “a person of integrity and honor”—or, put simply, a good person. AJC’s #BeAMensch campaign will share tips on the sorts of things you can do to be a mensch and lend a helping hand—or elbow—during this challenging time.

Share your stories of kindness and decency on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, using the hashtag #BeAMensch.
