Mussar: Be a Mensch

From RRW
Mensch - Wikipedia
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mensch

My brother's Yohrzeit is 6 Iyyar

One of the charges he gave me that remains with me to this day is

"Just Be A Mensch"

I've always aimed to live up to that advice

Derech Eretz for the Shabbat-Table:

Rabbi Mordechai Gifter said:

When a bochur would take a sefer out of the bookshelf, as soon as he finished using it, he would immediately return the sefer to its proper place.

Not like today, where they leave the seforim on the shtenders and benches and a seforim collector comes around at night with a cart collecting and putting back all theseforim. In Europe, we had kavod for the seforim.

That was Derech Eretz!

MINIBIOGRAPHY: Born 1915 CE, died 2001 CE, he was the Rosh Yeshivah of Telz in Cleveland and among the foremost leaders of Orthodox Jews in the late 20th century.
