100 Mensches

Our Jewish community is not immune to domestic abuse. And as men, we play a critical role in raising awareness and providing education on a community level. Only then can we eliminate this all too prevalent issue. By contributing $100 to this annual campaign, you’ll help raise critical dollars needed for educational awareness and prevention initiatives in our communities; initiatives that you’ll help create and execute as a member of the 100 Mensches.

100 Mensches is a group of men doing more than just talking about the problem; we’re making ourselves part of the solution.

One of the ways the Mensches raise awareness of domestic abuse is by engaging high school juniors and seniors with an essay contest. Read more about the contest by clicking the link below!
