She’s a mensch

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/singles/article/shes_a_mensch_20080618

In Hebrew, female nouns tend to end in "h" or "t," so what about menschah or menschat? We could stay Yiddish and call ourselves menschke or menschilah. There's also the French menschette, the Spanish menschita or the Jewish American menschess.
