Dear Yeshiva World Editor and Readers:
When I saw some people in my neighbors’ driveway that did not belong there, I picked up the phone and called the police. I was not about to wait and see what they were up to, and I certainly was not going to look the other way. These are my neighbors and we are a community.
I never expected to be treated like such a hero by the Jewish Community. Yeshiva World, you are the best! Neighbors have come to congratulate me nonstop. Children are all coming over to thank me. It is quite amazing.
We loved the comments and my wife thought the comment that my wife, Mrs. Fields, should bake the cookies was hilarious. (See comments HERE)

Tonight, the local news station filmed neighbors praising me. Another Jewish web site listed me as a hero and posted my picture and story – and people I do not even know are clicking to write to thank me for being a “Mench.” Now I have to ask my Jewish neighbors what a “mench” is and what some of these other words are – but they all seem good. I have even received one offer to replace a neighbor’s door. Even my business is picking up.
I can say, the Jewish people really know how to thank a person for something he should be doing anyway just as a neighbor. North Miami Beach is a great place to live and my neighbors are great neighbors.
Thank you all,
Eduardo Fields.


  1. Dear Mr. Fields,

    Thank you for being such a great neighbor to your neighborhood. Your quick thinking and poise in an unexpected situation reflects well on you.

    All the best to you and yours.

  2. Mr. Fields, I read the story and was very impressed with your actions. thank you for taking the time to write to YW and telling us what happened after the story hit.

  3. Mr Fields,
    I beg to differ with you … in this day and age when someone actually goes to the trouble to help a neighbor — he is more than a mentch … he’s a hero. So congratulations, we in NY are proud to salute you, as I’m sure your immediate community in N. Miami Beach.

  4. Mr. and Mrs. Fields, As a victim of a crime, I can tell you that you did not just prevent a crime but you prevented a heartache that could have lasted a long time. May you be blessed with a lifetime of joy. Thank you

  5. Kindly forward to Mr. Fields

    Mr. Fields, you are the epitome of what an American should be. I hope my neighbors will think half of me of the kiind of neighbor you are.

    The entire Jewish community is indebted to people of your caliber.

    Mrs. D.K.

    Lakewood, NJ

    And please tell Mrs. Fields to keep the cookies coming!

  6. Thank you so much Mr. Fields for helping keep NMB safer..Each step helps ensure that our family and friends can live in a safer community and for that we are indebted to you!!

  7. OK… So what is a “MENCH”? When the average person (not let’s say a national sports figure) is all of the following combined; A righteous person, gentleman, honest, moral and does the right thing.

    And to Mrs. Fields: We smell the cookies all the way up here in the cold northeast.

  8. I second all the above motions. May Gd bless you and your family, Mr. Fields.

    If EVERYBODY were like you, there would be almost no crime! Think about it.
