Mesel Wieder Mensch Award

The purpose of The Mesel Wieder Mensch Award is to recognize a member of the Cincinnati Jewish Community who personifies the meaning of the Yiddish word, “mensch”. This person is someone who quietly performs their acts of tzedakah and deeply affects the lives of individuals in ways which are often overlooked. Mesel Wieder was this type of person, and the award was set up in his name to honor those who will always be there quietly performing acts of tikkun olam.
