The Be Nice program was launched in memory of Shmuel Karnowsky A”H. Shmuel was an excellent talmid; a confident, intelligent yeshiva bochur who was especially known for his Middos Tovos. He was often heard telling others “Hey, be nice!”; and with these two simple words Shmuel infused so many situations with his innate positivity and genuine kindness. So with his simple yet profound words, the “Be Nice” program was started.
The Be Nice program was started last school year 5780/81-2020/21 in Bnos Menachem High School, and within just a few months has had such an impact on students’ personal journey as well as their interactions with family, friends, and teachers. Kindness has a ripple effect that vibrates through the world.
