Soccer… baseball… dance… basketball… lacrosse… gymnastics… swimming… running… Our children are involved in these and many other sports or sports-related activities, whether informally or on teams. We wondered: What might Jewish ethical teachings have to say about how to be a mensch – a person of integrity – in the world of sports? Out of a frustrating search for quality children’s books on the subject, this book was born. The Big Question we shared with our students: What is a mensch, and how can I be one? We discussed a variety of “mensch values” drawn from traditional Jewish sources, and the children then wrote sports-related stories—fiction, non-fiction, and sometimes a blend of both! Our hope is that other children (and adults) will find these stories both inspirational and entertaining.
