The Mitzvah of Mensch-hood (or the Blessing of Giving)

Hello and Happy Summer Solstice!

Summer has always been my favorite, with long warm endless days, laughter, ice cream and concerts in the park, etc., etc.

So I thought it would be a great time to open up to the “Mitzvah of Mensch-hood”, or the Blessing of Giving, as we enter this magnificent new season.

For those who are not familiar with the Jewish terms of ‘mitzvah’ and ‘mensch’, please allow me to define for you.

A mitzvah is a very special word to define a blessing, which usually connotates an offering, involving giving / receiving.  The Jewish religion is BIG on charity, on giving, and for those who are blessed to receive, it is a mitzvah.

A mensch is someone who gives freely, with no strings attached.

When you combine a mitzvah with a mensch, well, then we allow for great prosperity and abundance to surround us!

And so my story goes, a new friend who was referred to me by a colleague asked me to help him with online marketing and such.  Instead of going the, “what’s in it for me” route, and asking for $$ or whatever, I decided to graciously offer him assistance from the heart. 

Not only do I have an amazing man and friend for life, but he just stopped by with a brand new video camera (mine had broken and I was considering purchasing one) as a “thank you” gift.


It is the season to share and to care — Happy Summer, my friend!

Hugs to you,

Wendy Sue / Lady Clarity
