Tftd: Mirvis 27/9/2019

this morning (friday 27th), 7.47-7.50am, on bbc radio 4

thought for the day, by chief rabbi ephraim mirvis

“I believe that now, more than ever before, our challenged world needs to understand and internalise what it means to be a mensch. A mensch passionately fights for what they believe is right, without ever compromising on courtesy.  A mensch debates the substance of an issue, without seeking to destroy their opposition. A mensch is slow to anger and quick to learn from others, including those with whom they may profoundly disagree. And a mensch puts humility and responsibility before their own reputation.”
