You Write The Book On Being A Mensch

What Would
You Do..!

This book aims to fill that frequent gap, but not through moralizing and abstractions; it is a workbook based on real-life scenarios encountered by adolescents and teenagers around your students’ ages. It is designed to stimulate a young person’s evolving sense of right and wrong through active engagement, developing moral/ethical “muscle memory” through decision-making training. These exercises give them a chance to identify and cultivate virtues – character traits they would like to embody – which they can press into active service whenever the opportunity arises in life. This volume aims to guide and train teenagers to look at life through the lens of Musar and equip them with tools for the future.
